PLEASE click on “+MORE” below the first few sentences TO SEE THE FULL DESCRIPTION.

This 23-inch by 23-inch quilt piece is from a handmade 1940s Snowball pattern vintage quilt top that was finished into a quilt later, probably in the 1970s or 1980s (more info below). Details are:

~ The entire piece is shown in the 2nd and 4th photos. Two edges are binding edges that form a curve at the corner where they meet. The other two edges are rotary cut.

~ The fabrics are a wonderful selection of 1940s textiles, most of which appear to be feed sack, including the off-white squares between the octagons. There is one novelty piece with little soda fountain scenes (upper right, first photo).

~ The off-white squares are 1-3/4 inches on a side. The octagons are about 2 inches on a side and 4-1/2 inches across from the middle of one side to the middle of the opposite side.

~ The quilt top was pieced entirely by hand, probably in the 1940s. The quilt was finished later, probably in the 1970s or 1980s. The batting is lightweight polyester, and the backing and binding feel like they are a cotton blend. The quilting was done in diagonal lines that are 1-1/2 inches to 2 inches apart. The quilting is hand-stitched at about 4 SPI. The piece shows well from the front, in large part because of all the wonderful print fabrics, even though the quilting is only fair quality and the batting/backing are from a different time period.

~ The last photo shows the piece from the back.

~ The piece is very clean and has little, if any fading. The only blemishes I found were a couple very small spots (dots), which could have been on the feed sacks before they were used in the quilt.

I do my very best to accurately describe each piece of fabric I sell, but please remember that this piece came from a vintage quilt that was gently used.

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.

Additional policies

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. If ever there is any kind of concern or issue with a purchase, please contact me prior to leaving a review with less than 5 Stars, so that I may remedy the situation.

I sincerely appreciate my customers who take the time to leave reviews and share their experiences with other Etsy buyers.
