This beautiful 39-inch by 32-inch piece of a vintage quilt is the beloved pattern known as Wander's Path in the Wilderness, Drunkard's Path, Wonder of the World, Solomon's Puzzle, Robbing Peter to Pay Paul, Endless Trail, Old Mail's Puzzle, and many other names. The pattern dates back to at least 1888. Details are:
~ The piece is wonderfully soft and in excellent condition. Other than slight fading on the light blue fabric, I found no flaws or blemishes. The entire piece is shown in the 2nd and last photos.
~ This is a nice large piece (39 x 32 inches) that would make a beautiful display piece or photo prop. It would also make lovely pillows.
~ The piece has one binding edge that is a slightly darker blue than the piecework. There is some slight wear along the binding edge. The other three edge are rotary cut.
~ The shade of blue is a pretty light sky blue. The white fabric is not stark white, but a creamy shade of white.
~ The quilt appears to have been pieced on a treadle sewing machine and quilted in hand stitching at 6-8 SPI.
~ The backing is solid white, and the piece has thin cotton batting. A few cotton seeds can be seen in the batting when the piece is held to the light.
~ The piece has been laundered and is ready to use. Please remember this piece came from a old cutter quilt. While I do my best to describe all flaws and blemishes in the quilt pieces I list, I occasionally miss something minor.

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.
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.
