Of all my vintage doll beds, this is the smallest at just 14" long x 10" tall. When I first tried take a pic of it, the brown all blended together so I threw a piece of fabric on it to give you a better idea of its dimensions. It's in front of my kitchen cabinets, so hopefully that gives you an idea of its scale.
I don't even have a quilt small enough for it, so I guess I'm going to have to make one. I would love to hear any suggestions for color schemes that you might have. I am always drawn to brown and pink, so my current collection of quilts leans quite heavily toward that color scheme, but I was thinking of trying something new for this little bed. I'd also be curious to hear from anyone else who has a bed like this. Sadly, it didn't come with any information on its history.
Okay, before I close I can't resist a little Halloween sidenote to show you this sweet Halloween owl fabric that I purchased from Adel Quilting and Drygoods. Anyone who knows me well can attest that I'm a bit little owl obsessed. Always have been ever since I was a little girl growing up in a state park where a nocturnal symphony of owls often serenaded me to sleep. I was listening to a most intriguing program about them the other day on Iowa Public Radio. The host was talking to wildlife biologist Jim Pease about the owls of Iowa, including the barred owl, great horned owl, and tiny screech owl. It was quite entertaining, too, as he replicated some great owl calls. If you're interested, you can listen to the entire program here.
Even my parents-in-law feed my owl obsession. My mom-in-law gave me this sparkly owl ring along with a cute owl hand towel the other day when they visited. Before I removed it from its tag, I had to try it on.
