Making a Quilt From a Square

 Frequently I find these quilted squares in the Thrift Stores.  They are made usually to be wall hangings.  The hand quilting on most of them is very good work.  This one was perfect scale for a doll quilt.  The price was right, Ninety nine cents, and it came with the hanging rod also.  But, my mind always goes to what can I do to make it usable for my dolls. 

 Beds are not square, not even a doll bed, so it needed to be made longer.  I went to my fabric stash to see what would match the square.  Pictured here are some of the possibilities.

This is the finished quilt with the added pieces at the top and bottom
