This amazing handmade vintage quilt piece measures 33 by 22 inches. The pattern is Trip Around the World. The quilt was made in the 1930s or 1940s. The piece in wonderful condition. Details are:
~ The entire piece is shown in the 2nd photo. Two edges are very narrow border edges (bottom and left edges in the 2nd photo), which are the backing brought around to the front. The other two edges are rotary cut. There is no discernable wear along the border edges.
~ The individual patches are rectangles that measure just 2-1/4 inches by 1-1/4 inches. The size gives the quilt piece the appearance of a postage stamp quilt. Many of the print fabrics appear to be feed sack.
~ The piece is slightly faded overall, but the colors are still crisp. Shown in the 3rd photo: One row of solid red blocks has two different shades of solid red fabric. Most of the rectangles are the lighter shade, and a few are the same shade as the other solid red rows. The shortest red row near the lower left corner is also the lighter shade of red. I think there were two different red fabrics used for the quilt, and one was lighter or faded more than the other. In either case, that two rows have a lighter red than the other two red rows. The shade difference does show in the photos.
~ The quilt was pieced entirely by hand with tiny stitches. The quilting is diagonal lines just one inch apart, also hand-stitched at 6 to 8 SPI. Other than than the slight fading, I found no blemishes on the front.
~ The backing is sweet teal blue on tonal grey print, shown in the last photo. There are several small stains on the back that do not show through to the front. The piece has thin cotton batting.
~ I carefully and gently hand laundered the quilt before cutting. The piece is fresh and clean and ready to use in your special projects.
This piece is a wonderful example of an expertly stitched quilt that was used and loved. It was obviously used and loved, but great care was taken to preserve it. The piece would be lovely as a display piece or photo prop, but could also be used for smaller projects.
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 made a long time ago and was used and loved..

Nice quilt piece. Shipped quickly. Would buy from this seller again.
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.
