This listing is for a 28-inch by 28-inch piece of a 19th century quilt with lovely old fabrics, including calicos in madder brown and double pinks. The piece has a slightly primitive character, since a number of the patches have some wear. Details are:
~ The 2nd and 3rd photos shows the entire piece. Two edges (top and right) are narrow binding edges. The other two edges are rotary cut. Even though I cut along the pattern, the piece is not a perfect rectangle.
~ The colors are still remarkably crisp. I found wear (mostly slight) on 7 different triangles, pointed out in the 3rd photo.s a Most of the fabrics are in very good condition. There is some very slight age discoloration on the front of the piece that really is not noticeable unless you are looking for it.
~ The quilt was pieced by hand and quilted at 6-8 SPI with brown or tan thread. The backing is natural homespun fabric. The batting is medium-weight natural unbleached cotton with many cotton seeds scattered through it. The batting is slightly uneven in spots.
~ I gently hand-washed and line-dried the quilt before cutting it, so the piece is clean and fresh, ready to display or use in projects.
I do my very best to accurately describe each piece of fabric I sell, but please remember that this piece is from an antique quilt that is over 100 years old. It was loved and used and does have flaws and blemishes.
Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I am always happy to provide additional information about my items.
On purchases of multiple items, Etsy calculates combined shipping when purchases are made on the same invoice (all items in a cart at once), but the amount is not always correct. I refund shipping overcharges of more than $1.00 immediately following shipment.
If a buyer wishes to have an order shipped to an address other than the buyer's address, the shipping address must be entered during the checkout process. Specifying a different address by convo or message is not sufficient to permit me to ship to that address. If an address changed is requested, I will refund and cancel the order, and ask the buyer to repurchase using the correct shipping address, in compliance with the Etsy Seller Protection Policy.
I no longer ship internationally to any country. Shipping is to U.S. addresses only.
I accept payment through Paypal via Paypal balance, credit card, or direct bank transfer, or through Etsy payments. I do not accept eCheck payments. I do not offer layaway services or installment payment plans.
Returns & exchanges
I accept returns only if I have made a mistake in the listing or an item otherwise is not as described in the listing, as long as the return is postmarked within 3 business days of receipt and is returned in exactly the same condition as it was received. The buyer must contact me prior to returning any item. Refunds will be issued after the item has been returned.
All of my listings are sold on a first come, first served basis. I do not "hold" or "reserve" items for purchase at a later time.
My prices are the same for everyone. I do not add a cushion to prices to allow for negotiating price or provide for free shipping. I treat all buyers the same and keep my prices as low as possible for everyone, rather than negotiating special prices for individual buyers.
Reviews are a valuable resource for both sellers and buyers. I rely on my reputation to inform new buyers about the quality of my products and level of customer service.
