Tea with Raggedy Ann and Andy





The cover of one of my favorite doll quilt books shows two Raggedy Anns having tea together.  The book is "Childhood Treasurers - Doll Quilts By and For Children" by Merikay Waldvogel.  The Raggedy Ann and Andy in my picture are from the 60's and were loved dearly by our daughter and son, when they were little children.  Andy has had several head repairs after childhood teething incidents.




My replica measures 18.5 by 18.5 inches, and is machine pieced and machine quilted.  It went very quickly and was fun to make.  The patches are one inch.

Thanks for your lovely comments on the last quilt.  Hope you like this one!

    1. Thank you Mary - I will be making more from this book, so you can compare my copy to your copy. It is fun.

  3. Very cute :) I have this book too but haven't yet made anything from it. I had to giggle at the head repairs on Andy. I have a similar task to perform on Teddy belonging to my dd.
