Raggedy Ann and Andy Love

Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE Raggedy Ann and Andy? I grew up reading the books and playing with my "Ann" and "Andy" dolls that my Grandma made me. The books and dolls that I grew up with are safely packed away to pass along to my kids someday (when I have them.) The doll and books pictured above are thrift shop finds.

I was so excited when Donna from Donna's Lavendar Nest sent me photos of her Raggedy Ann and Andy quilt.
She used a vintage Raggedy Ann sheet on the front and a cute yellow and white check sheet for the back. She bound it with a red and white check and quilted it with flowers and hearts. Love it!

Thank you so much, Donna for sharing your adorable quilt. I love all reader submissions. You are all such a talented group of ladies.

I love it! My little girl is a big fan of the Raggedys—I'll have to keep my eyes open for a sheet. :)

Thank you so much Heather. I have another Raggedy Ann and Andy sheet just trying to find the right back for it. You are so sweet to post about my quilt.

I have a twin side set of those sheets. I still put them on the bed when my grown daughter comes home for a visit.
