This listing is for a 29-inch by 20-inch piece of an Ocean Waves pattern vintage quilt. The piece has a slightly primitive quality, as explained in the description. Details are:
~ The entire piece is shown in the 2nd photo. One edge is border/binding edge, which has wear. The other three edges are rotary cut.
~ The piece has that lovely old, soft quilt feeling. The fabrics are faded overall, including the solid mint green. The piece has a wonderful assortment of 1930s and 1940s small prints, in a wide range of colors, including pink, lavender, yellow, blue, and green. Quite a few of the fabrics appear to be feed sack.
~ The little triangles are small, measuring 1-1/2 inches on the short sides and 2 inches on the long side.
~ I counted about a dozen print triangles in different places on the front that have varying amounts of wear, which is the reason I describe the piece as "slightly primitive." Because the pieces are so small and there are so many prints, the worn pieces don't jump out. I had to hold the piece up to the light and look from the back to be able to find them. Even with the wear, the piece is overall very sturdy and secure because of the dense quilting.
~ All the little pieces were hand stitched (pieced) together. The piece is densely quilted in small hand stitches at 8 SPI. The batting is thin cotton. The backing (last photo) is the same mint green solid fabric used on the front, and it is also overall faded.
~ The piece is very clean and has been freshly hand laundered.
I do my best to accurately describe the condition of fabrics that I list, but please remember that this is a piece from a cutter vintage quilt that was used and does have flaws and blemishes. While I try to mention every flaw I find, it is easy to overlook issues in a piece with so many fabrics and small pieces.
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.
