Spartex/Doublestencil American Heritage Collection Applique and Wholecloth kits and a Benartex wholecloth kit too

Tonight I’m posting my vintage Doublestencil wholecloth and wholecloth/applique quilts.

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.


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.

    Hi Katrina: I have answered you directly by email – basically, my understanding is that Spartex closed down some years ago. I have not seen Hagerstown Feather in the secondary market, but from time to time Spartex kits show up. I do have the Spartex American Star which is similar to Hagerstown Feather.

  • I would like to know if I can get summer lotus pattern? or any info. on this quilt top. Thank you

    If you are referring to the wholecloth quilt – I think it may have been put out by Doublestencil/Spartex. I don’t have it in stock at the moment.
