Tobin/Progress vintage Tree of Life Quilt Kit – telling the difference between a true vintage kit and the currently manufactured modern kit
In stock again!!! The lovely vintage quilt kit on the left below is on it’s way to me and I am immediately offering it for sale for those of you who want a rare and lovely vintage kit. It will not last long and is priced at $225 USD plus $25 USD shipping
Enlarge both pictures above to read the descriptive material on the package – the one on the left is the vintage Progress/Tobin Tree of Life Quilt Kit which I have for sale – this quilt kit is 100% cotton and has been out of print for thirty years or more. The picture on the right is of a technically vintage but still in production quilt kit which superceded the 100% cotton one and is made of a blend of 50/50% polyester/cotton. This quilt kit, though technically vintage is less desirable among collectors than the earlier, out of print version.
Hope that clarifies matters for you – just a note> I am too careful of my hard earned reputation to ever sell a poly/cotton blend quilt kit, so rest assured you will get the very best of vintage quilt kits through me.

Here is one of the queen sized quilts that sold at the show. The quiltmaker is a senior lady who is clearly very proficient. She and her daughter come and show at Quilts at the Harbour regularly and we look forward to touching base with them each year. This year they also brought along another daughter’s lovely quilts and embroidered tote bags. Bonus!!!
We close with two visitors examining the other queen sized quilt that sold right after we opened for the day. It really heartened us to make a major sale that early in the day!!!
Don’t forget that Quilts at the Harbour 11 will take place on Saturday September 26, 2009 from 10AM until 6PM and again on Sunday September 27, 2009 from 12 until 5PM. I can’t believe we have been doing this for 11 years! Seems like yesterday we were feeling our way through planning the first show!!
See you there at the Hall’s Harbour United Baptist Church on the corner of West Hall’s Harbour and Sullivan Roads.
