A few years back I made a couple of doll quilts for friends who collect dolls.
The doll quilts were made of poly cotton therefore if you are the quilt police and disapprove of anything but 100% cotton quilts I’m afraid this post will upset you. I don’t like to mix fibre types in a quilt but I’m totally cool with an all poly cotton quilt.
And you have to admit there are some cool pillowcases and sheets from a few years ago when polycotton was all the rage for bedding, as these two doll quilts attest:

Great use for your old sheets. (Although, the only print sheets I remember were from a LOT of years ago!) I’m sure the doll’s will love them!
This are both SEW sweet!!!
Hi Yvonne! I don’t think there should even BE a quilt police. If someone doesn’t like what someone else makes, then keep your opinion to yourself. Weren’t you taught that as a small child? If you don’t have something nice to say . . . Anyway, jumping off my soap box now! I think your doll quilts are pretty, and just perfect for some special dolly friends. I have been meaning to make some for the charity A Doll Like You, so thank you for reminding me. And thanks for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne
Personally I prefer 100% cotton but these are gorgeous. All cotton waterbed sheets are hard to find so I purchase 100% top sheets and make my own. My mil loved flowery fabrics and has made just about everything from the cotton/poly sheets.
Your doll quilts are lovely — I wouldn’t mind having one myself ♥
I plan to make doll quilts with the 4 patches I’ve been sewing together with the soscrappy colors. I really should get on that soon!
So pretty and Spring like. Bet the dollies and their owners love them to bits!
Great way to recycle old sheets! And I’m sure the little dolls just loved these. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss!
