This sweet, small, faded 34-inch by 18-inch quilt piece is from a Rainbow Pattern vintage quilt made in the 1940s. The Rainbow Pattern was made by diagonal rows of square patches with groups of rows in different color families. Details are:

~ The entire piece is shown in the 4th and 5th photos photo. The individual squares are 1-3/4 inches on a side. One edge is a narrow binding edge. The other three edges are rotary cut.

~ This quilt was used and loved, and the piece is faded overall. I found one separated seam between to patches. I did not find any wear on any of the patches, other than the fading.

~ Many of the fabrics are feed sack. There is a wonderful array print fabrics on the piece.

~ The quilt was pieced and quilted entirely with small hand stitches. The quilting was done in parallel lines on a diagonal through all the blocks. The stitching is 8-9 SPI. There are a few places where the quilting stitches have come undone, which is not really noticeable from the front of the piece because of the print fabrics. The binding, which is the backing brought to the front, is machine stitched, probably with a treadle machine.

~ The backing is some kind of re-purposed fabric with an uneven blue tint, probably a feed sack or grain sack fabric. The blue does not bleed and does not affect the front. The last photo shows the back of the piece.

~ The batting is thin cotton. In some places on the quilt, there were cotton seeds visible in the batting when I held the quilt to the light.

~ I gently washed the quilt before cutting it, so the piece is fresh and clean and ready to use for your projects.

I do my very best to accurately describe each piece of fabric I sell, but please remember that this piece is from a vintage cutter quilt that was loved and 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.
