Good Morning Quilters! I decided to veer off into another subject related to doll quilts: A spool doll bed. I have regular doll beds and have some wooden thread spools saved to make doll furniture. Have you ever made a doll bed with old wooden thread spools? I would love to hear about your experience if you have, and also send me a picture. Here are two pictures I have saved from the internet:

If I make a rocking chair instead of a bed, I will make a cushion for it. The spools don't look very comfortable for a doll to sit upon.
This bed looks fairly straightforward. I would stain it instead of painting it white though, and I would add a ticking striped mattress. (And of course, sheets, pillows, and a doll quilt). And a doll!
