Bedding & Braided Rug For The Fairy House

I've finished the bedding and a braided rug
for the fairy house upper floor.

The hubs made some sturdy bottoms
for the little beds, to replace the rather
flimsy ones.

I got out some blue ticking & 30's
reproductions fat quarters from my stash.
The painting on the furniture & the fairies on
the walls have bold colors & thought these
would coordinate well.
I had some lady bug buttons in the button tin &
 decided to use them.  It made a lumpy bed, but
maybe the fairies won't mind.
I made little hand stitched quilts
using 4 nine patch blocks
Flannel for the quilting & a
coordinating fabric for the back,
Red matching binding.
The quilts are so small I didn't quilt them.
I used 3 strips to make the quilt for the 
cradle, it's teeny tiny.
 
Fabric strips for the braided rug.

The rug is a 6 3/4 inch circle.

 Signs of spring here in the Ozarks!
 Gee, being retired is fun!!
