VINTAGE PARAGON QUILT KITS

This lovely 90×108 kit is my most recent acquisition. Dating to the American Bicentennial in 1976, the kit is based on a quilt held in the Smithsonian Institution collection. The American Bicentennial celebration began a resurgence in the popularity of quiltmaking that continues to this day, and saw many marvellous kits designed and marketed. I also have in my collection a “Tree of Life” applique kit by Tobin and in addition, many cross stitch Paragon quilt kits from the same vintage period. All kits are of 100% cotton and usually the thread kits for the cross stitch quilts are much more colourfast than todays threads.

  • In 1954 I made a baby quilt from a Paragon kit. A cross-stitch of cowboys and indians (Indian boy in tree I think, cowgirl on stick or rocking horse). Now I’m expecting a great grandson and would love to do the same one for him. Do you know of a source just for the pattern that I might reproduce? Is there still a Paragon company that makes quilt kits, have they an archive that might contain that pattern? I know this is a far stretch, but – nothing ventured, nothing gained! Thank you. Sending this from my daughter’s computer, my home address above.

    Janet,

    Checking to see if you received my email and message about the other quilt and thread kits.

    Janet,

    Do you have any Paragon Cross stitch Bicentennial quilt tops? Also, if you have any floss kits for Paragon quilts, please let me know which. I would still like to have the blue or brown Americana quilt top if you find the floss kit. Love to see what you have. Also, having trouble pulling up 2014 website. Please let me know what I am doing wrong.
