Doll Quilts, found in Hillsboro, Oregon

doll quilt, c. 1970, 16" x 19 & 1/2"
Today, Mom and I went to the Washington County Museum to hear Mary Bywater Cross present a lecture, and afterwards we checked out a couple of the antique shops down the block from the museum.

I found two charming little doll quilts, made by a local woman whose name I have not received yet. The owner of the shop is going to see if he can retrieve it. The first of the two quilts is a small, string-pieced gem, only 16 inches x 19 & 1/2 inches!

The second quilt is also c. 1970s, 27 inches square, and is a colorful little one-patch with diagonal rows of solid colors. Charming!

I didn't expect to find anything today, but was happy to score these two little gems. Even though they aren't very old, they are cheerful and uncommonly small. Something to crow about, for sure!
