Red Centered Nine Square Quilt

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, with a red center.  

The back is a thrifted cotton calicoes with pieced cotton strips between.  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 cold.  With care, I have had a quilt of this type last for over 30 years.

The price is $500 plus $20 shipping.

Green Waves Market Bag

This is a cotton shopping bag.

It is reversible with one side ocean creatures.

The other side is green waves.

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.

wrap apron

This is a linen wrap apron.  It is my current favourite apron style.

It is full coverage for those of us who get flour between their shoulder blades when baking.  

It is approximately 40 inches long with pockets that are 8 inches by 7 inches centered on the front.  This is based on the Vogue pattern size 10 which has a published bust of 32.5 inches, waist of 25 inches, and hip of 34.5 inches.  Each measurement on this apron is at least two inches larger.  It is cut in a slight a-line fashion show the hip is closer to 4 inches larger.

There are opening for each side of the waist for the tie to go through.  The tie is approximately 20 inches long.

And because I am silly, I put a cotton tag on the inside back.

The apron is made of linen, and is machine washable and dryable.  I would say it is a S/M.

If you need a different size or colour, please contact me.

It is $87 with $10 shipping.
