Here is an interesting textile lot which includes 25 hand sewn quilt squares, a sweet but well-loved cloth doll and a large group of small quilt fabric pieces. The squares range in size from 8" up to 9.5". They are nicely made with some of the sewing done by hand and some by machine. The color and pattern varieties are very nice. The poor little doll is 10" tall. She only has one arm remaining and it is in tatters. She has lost any hair or hat she may have had along with her upper garments. She has a faded skirt and pantalettes remaining. You can see areas of stitching where she had other things sewn on her at one time. Her faded features are ink drawn. As for the fabric pieces, there are a lot of them and the patterns are varied, from check to stripes to floral to geometric. The majority of them are cut into approximately 1.5" by 4.25" pieces, but there are a few larger triangle pieces and some that are irregular. Some have age related soil, but most of the fabrics are in good condition. In a time where so much is disposable, it's charming to see how even the smallest pieces of fabric were saved. It's nice to just look at all of the fabric patterns, but hopefully someone has a use for this nice and varied group of textiles. I believe most are from the late 19th, early 20th century.
