Spartex/Doublestencil American Heritage Collection Applique and Wholecloth kits and a Benartex wholecloth kit too
This will be a rather long post so I may break it into two parts and do the rest in the morning.
First I have two full/queen sized kits, both very lovely. The kit on the right is a huge kit measuring 88 by 114 inches, so I think it could really be called a king/queen. A challenge, but a true heirloom once it is completed. This kit is complete with all applique pieces but will need backing and batting. I have found that by far the best batting is the Request weight of Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton batting – drapes beautifully and gives that mellow, antique look. Worth every cent of the little extra you will pay for it.
QUILT KIT PRICE: $225 USD
Above is the Spartex/Doublestencil full/queen sized wholecloth quilt kit “Pineapple Delight” which is a traditional wholecloth pattern. It is in an antique white which is a very light ecru or cream. Nothing compares with the wonderful feeling of relaxation that comes over you as you work on a wholecloth – it is almost like meditation as you fall into the rhythm of effortless handquilting. In fact I’m very tempted to start a small one myself or the queen size that I bought out of package – may do that very soon – I could do with some relaxation!!
SOLD November 16/09 PRICE: $175 USD
I think that’s it for this evening. Will finish posting with the 5 smaller wholecloth and wholecloth/applique quilt kits tomorrow afternoon. In addition, I will also be listing many vintage cross stitch quilt kits over the rest of the week.
