Doll Quilt

I decided to make a doll quilt, something quick and easy.
Only I, could mess up such a simple thing, lol.
I machine sewed the pieces and used lana wool thread for the stitching.
I antiqued it, but I really wanted it to look old. Well, I accidently spilled some water from the bottle on it and noticed it when I took the picture, nice stained look;) So, I will spritz it a little here and there to get more of an aged look.
I was wondering whether I should be little black ties on it? What do you think?

I would leave the ties off so you can use it where you want in your home

Very sweet. Black ties would make it oh so vintage. I think the idea of random staining on it!!!

I think that black ties would look wonderful on it - although it does look wonderful as it is.

Very sweet little quilt. I love the colors. Personally, I'd skip the black ties.

I do like the way the quilt looks now but the ties would make it look more old since you don't see quilts tied much anymore.

Yup, I'm thinking the little black ties would make it really old-looking. I love this, Deb! You HAND-quilted it? WOW! It looks great!

I like it as it is, but then I could help you out by spilling some silver polish. I have loads of the stuff :-)
