Just two more for today as my patience is about exhausted in dealing with Blogger’s various current glitches. Uploading pictures has been slow and chancy to say the least!
Above is the vintage Bucilla cross stitch quilt kit “Jacobean Garden” which as you can see is a version of the Tree of Life pattern brought to the western world with the first shipments of Indiennes prints out of India in the early 17th century. It is derived from the palampores so very popular at that time as bedcoverings. It is a very lovely kit – the colours are soft and vibrant.
This kit(a king/queen) is a rare one and I only ever saw this one that I promptly acquired. No thread kit for this one but colours and quantities are listed.
Price $225 USD + shipping
Now I’m having problems getting this post to format in the way I prefer, so please bear with me as I finish up here…..
Below is a Bucilla Vintage Cross Stitch quilt kit that is derived from traditional 19th century quilts. It is a queen sized kit and we see it shown in one colour only – which would work up quickly. It might though, make more of an impact using the strong colours so popular in both Baltimore Album quilts and the red, green and ochre quilts made in the eastern seaboard and spread westward with settlement – again your choice as there is no thread kit with it.
PRICE: $185 + shipping
