Amish Doll Quilt, etc.


This Amish-style doll quilt was made back in the late 70's on an old Singer Stylist sewing machine.  It's almost 40 years old and I'm not sure if it qualifies as an "antique," but since I listed on etsy it has been "favorited" by at least a dozen people and added to a Treasure List.  It's only $12.  Do you think if I prepared kits to make these they would sell?

This morning I finished another doll quilt I'm calling "Falling Leaves."  No photo yet because I am copyrighting the design and preparing a pdf pattern to sell in the shop.  Let's see if I can actually DO this!  It is a really cool, fast and easy pattern from which you can make "seasonal" wallhangings or doll quilts or table runners by switching out the fabric choices.  The first quilt I made is called "Easter Egg Hunt" and I designed a winter-themed piece called "Ice and Snow" for winter.  Next up is a piece I am calling "Wildflower Field." 

Tuesday I am going to participate in my first Arts & Crafts show.  I'm really nervous, but I don't know why.  It's not a sale, but there is always someone who wants to know "How much?"  Also, I'm worried about theft.  If any of you have any insights or advice about this, leave a comment.  I will be forever grateful!! 

Back to the drawing board!  xxoo

UPDATE:  This little quilt was finally "favorited" permanently and flew to its new home up North!
