I could have sworn I reviewed this already. Guess not. I love Addy's quilt! I especially like that is is a small section of a real quilt made by a former slave. (See History Class - For More Information about Addy's time). It makes the quilt even more special. I think the stitching around the "appliqué" gives it a more authentic look. The little ruffle is sweet and the backing fabric gives it a sort of reversible look. Grade: A

I got this with my Addy as a pre-graduation gift from my parents that I got to open on my birthday in Dec. I love the size of this quilt and is thick and beautiful, even if the top is appliqued. I hadn't really noticed the green on the border before I got it. Two dolls can snuggle up under it. My Addy is so happy to have her quilt. I give this an A!
Addy snuggles under her quilt for a good night's sleep.
I'm not too sure of this one. This was always my favorite quilt of all the historical dolls, and when I finally ordered it on sale, I was a bit disappointed. I guess I expected the appliques to be real (hah), and the print on the top layer of fabric seems very stiff. Almost rubbery?
I've had this packed away for a year or so, and when I got it out to give to DD for her birthday, I liked it a little better than when I first got it, but I'm still not thrilled with it. I think I want it to be softer.
I don't have any bedding for any of the other dolls, so I can't compare, but I'd give this quilt a C or so.
I have to echo what Natasha said about the papery feel. I bought mine from a board member to complete Addy's bed. Mattel version. I like to design, and always wanted it, but I thought it would feel softer like an actual quilt.
