Floppy Flo Quilt





Behold, one of my all-time favorite quilts.

 Made by my Mother, of course
Yes, those are hand embroidered Raggedy Ann's. 
She picked up the antique top already pieced and her friend suggested she embroider in the white squares, which she obviously did using a "Floppy Flo" book, and then she hand-quilted the thing!

She made another similar to it that actually has blue Andy's in-between the Ann's. My Sister has it (shaking my fist into the air)  but she told me I can have this one when she die's (in 100 years) and I am going to cherish the crap out of this beauty.  It's got some serious sentimental value considering my room was decorated in Raggedy Ann's when I was little. 

Ain't nothin' raggedy about this quilt!
(I couldn't resist)
