I just love this pie safe filled with little remnants of well loved vintage quilts. The quilts are from my collection over the years. They are referred to as cutters. They are well loved quilts, that may have a section that is torn or ruined. So a majority of the quilt is wonderful, just the one area is not good. But from the good part of these turn of the century quilts, I will cut out quilt pieces to fold and stack in this hutch.
I've been able to acquire some wonderful turn of the century quilts, even some from the late 1800's. I just love quilts and have always been a quilter myself. The colors are wonderful and the feel of the fabric is so soft. You know the quilt was loved and used by a family.
The pie safe has been painted and filled with these vintage quilt pieces, folded carefully to replicate a real sized quilt hutch. The hutch measures 5" tall, 4" wide and 1" deep. All the items on top are part of this listing as well. The little birdhouse was found in a wonderful tin full of tiny little birds and birdhouses, that were all older...not sure how old. But I loved it and loved the old farm look the birdhouse look. The other items are groupings of items found and made.
The hutch is from a dollhouse manufacturer.
I accept Paypal, money orders and credit cards. If you need to do a lay-away plan I can also work with you individually on that as well. If you return an item please realize it may take a 2-7 day time period for money to refund to you from Etsy or PayPal. And that is set in motion after I receive the item back in the mail. And due to the nature of digital items I cannot refund the cost of a paid for digital pattern. I however can email the link or pattern to you should you have difficulty opening up the digital pdf file.
I try to ship within 3-5 days. While keeping shipping costs down I take a common sense approach to shipping. Appropriate packaging and shipping for items sent.
Most items are sent 1st Class or Priority Mail-USPS depending on size of the item. Priority Mail includes tracking and insurance unto $50.00. It is extremely helpful when trying to locate a package for you! The only items that are not sent Priority are usually tiny items under $10.00
Just contact me within: 5 days of delivery
Ship items back to me within: 7 days of delivery
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
I am able to refund as long as there is a valid reason for refunding. I am not however able to refund the cost of a digital download that you have access too. Nor am I able to refund the cost of my work when I have done a custom order with your measurements. I can give you store credit to purchase something else.
I had someone order 400.00 worth of products, and then cancel a few days later as I was mailing out their package. That is rough....especially if you just made your house payment!
I ship worldwide, please just communicate with me if you want something and I don't have postal information for you. I'm not able to sell wholesale at this time. Please be advised that other countries may charge additional rates for customs and mailing privileges. I am not in control of these charges.

I love this piece and each little quilt in it. The decorations on top enhance it nicely and it goes perfect in my English cottage.
