This precious 15-inch by 12-inch piece vintage quilt piece has an exquisite appliqué flower cluster that was beautifully stitched by hand. Details are:
~ The whole piece is shown in the 2nd photo.
~ The center flower is butter yellow. The color is softer and a little lighter than it appears in the photos.
~ The flower bouquet is not centered on the rectangle. To use the piece for a pillow, you would cut it down and use the bouquet as the centerpiece for the pillow, adding a border or frame around it.
~ The appliqué stitching on the flower is some of the tiniest hand stitching I have ever seen on an appliqué. It is expertly stitched.
~ In addition to the appliqué stitching on the flower cluster, there is quilted feather wreath around the flower cluster, which is hard to see in the photos. I think you can see it if you Zoom on the last photo of the back. The quilted wreath is 1/2-inch from the top of the piece, and 1.5 inches from the left side, so you could cut a square that would include the whole quilted wreath around the bouquet. It would be smaller than the whole square and would measure about 12 by 10 inches, a nice size for the centerpiece of a pillow panel.
~ The flower circle is 7 inches across. Including the quilted wreath, the bouquet would be in a circle is a little more than 9 inches.
~ On the background fabric, there is diagonal hand-stitched quilting in rows that are just 5/8 inch apart. Like the appliqué, the quilting is done in tiny stitches at 6-8 SPI.
~ The background fabric and the backing are creamy white, rather than stark white.
~ I found no flaws or blemishes on the piece.
I do my very best to accurately describe each item that I list, but please remember that this piece is from a vintage cutter quilt that was loved and 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.
