THOUGHTS ON VINTAGE APPLIQUE KITS

I’ve been pulling together and checking a couple of lovely vintsge quilt kits that are due to go out to their new owners tomorrow. I’m impressed all over again at the high quality and good design that has gone into these kits; and all over again, I wish I had time to stitch these up. Neither of them are readily available any more on the secondary market and although I will try to replace them for my inventory I doubt I will be able to.

While trolling through my storage system to pull these for mailing, I came upon two glorious kits I had almost forgotten I had and the one that I will check and photograph tomorrow appears to be completed or almost so – it is an extremely rare and very vintage one that judging by the fragile and shattered paper black and white picture dates from the late 1930’s or early 1940’s – a rare treasure indeed.

I will first offer it (as is) for sale, but may very well decide to finish it for sale through my website and quilt studio or at one of several quilt shows I will be exhibiting at this summer.

The two pictured above are going to give much joy to their new owners.
