I hung this quilt on the line a week ago Sunday when I took the picture of the hexagon quilt that I shared last Monday. It was such a lovely afternoon, perfect for taking pictures. This is such a sweet little doll quilt...........
I don't have any information on the maker of the quilt. And I don't even remember where I got it. I have this vague recollection that I got it at a thrift shop. This is why one should label quilts because memory does not last!!
Then again..........memories of my high school music teacher, Mrs. Parr will last forever with me. She was THE teacher that was the most influential in my life. I've mentioned her before. She began teaching in the Lehigh Public Schools sometime in the early 1950's. She was my music teacher from kindergarten through the 12th grade. In high school, I took private voice lessons from her. She loved pink and had a pink house with lots of pink furnishings. I'm sure my love of pink has something to do with that. She passed away several years ago, and there was an auction of her things. My mother and dad went to the auction and bought the doll that's in the carriage below. The doll belonged to Mrs. Parr as a child. She's wearing the original pink flannel pajamas made for the doll many years ago. The bib was not with the doll but she looks cute wearing it.
I keep the doll in the carriage, nestled with the little quilt and the pink crocheted afghan. It sits in my pretty pink bedroom that my daughter loves to sleep in when she comes to visit. Ah, memories are a wonderful thing. Now if I could just remember to label my quilts..........the memory of who made them or where they came from will be a lot easier in years to come!
