Purples qilt

The quilt for sale is a nine square quilt made with 100 nine square blocks using squares that are 2.5 by 2.5 inches.  

This quilt is made of multi-coloured cottons but it just feels purple to me.  I think it is the purple squares on the diagonals.

The back is a thrifted cotton calicoes with nine square strips between.  I actually think I like the back better then the front.  

The batting is 100% organic cotton.

The quilt is machine pieced and quilted on a treadle sewing machine.  The binding is stitched on the treadle in place and then I finish it by hand.  The corners of the binding are mitered.

The quilt is approximately 52 inches by 52 inches.

The quilt is machine washable and dryable.  I wash tap cold and normally hang dry but that has more to do with washing preferences.  It is machine dryable. I always wash tap cold.  With care, I have had a quilt of this type last for over 30 years.

The price is $500 plus $20 shipping.

ravens market bag

This is a cotton shopping bag.

It is reversible with one side black ravens on a white background and the other black corduroy.

 The bag dimensions are 17 inches tall, 16 inches wide, and 4 inches deep.

The pocket is 8 inches wide by 7 inches high.

The strap is 2 inches wide by about 34 inches long.  It has both fabrics on it.

The bottom is a flat bottom which makes it more easily packed with groceries.

I have been making these bags and using them for years.  The dimensions are based off a paper grocery bag.  The only time I have had a bag fall apart was after it had been played with by a dog.  Then it held up until it was carrying a crazy amount of library books.  It still worked after I tied a square knot in the strap and sewed together.  I was traveling so it was a repair that had to happen.

The bag is $25 plus $7 shipping.
