Today I will show you the second antique doll quilt from the batch, previously shown in this post,
that I received in London last month.

I think that brown, beige and pink are perfectly matching colors, one of my favorite antique fabrics blends.

Nice white and blue calicot and nice hand quilting.

I am a great fan of Beatrix Potter art, and those little books are remains from my childhood.

For those who may be interested in Beatrix Potter art and life, I recommend this excellent film : Miss Potter, with Renee Zellweger in the role of Beatrix Potter. I was so delighted when I first saw this film, that I watched it again and again... This is one of my best films ever!

Have a beautiful creative day!

  5. Hi Christine! Lovely little quilt and I love Beatix Potter and her bunnies, too! I have seen that film and it's one of my favourites. I have lovely memories with it, because when watching it First time, I was cutting squares for my First quilts! Your pink little quilt is beautiful and I'm looking for to see what you do with your Kaffe Fassett's Fabrics. I have a Special bundle of Kaffe's and haven't decide yet the pattern. x Teje
