Bucilla Vintage Applique Quilt GARDEN POPPY #8791

WHOOPS! I forgot this one when I was posting recently acquired inventory yesterday. Senior moments are increasing I think! After a long wait after this kit sold in the spring, I now have it in stock again.

This is the red version of Garden Poppies, Bucilla Applique Quilt Kit # 8791, size 84×100 which is a double/queen.

This won’t last long. One kit I posted yesterday has already sold. These kits are becoming harder and harder to find on the secondary market.

PRICE: $275 USD + $25 USD SHIPPING, for a Total of $300USD

UPDATE: MORE VINTAGE APPLIQUE QUILTS

 

Today I have acquired three remarkable vintage  Bucilla Applique  quilt kits. Two of them I had not seen before. The third I had only seen once before when I picked up a partial kit a few months ago that was mixed in with several other kits all in a jumble. These are from the same source, have been well and carefully stored and are clean and intact except for one small  exception.

I am waiting for them to ship and delivery should be in a week to 10 days, at which time I will confirm their apparent excellent condition before completing a sale. Contact me to reserve any of them and I will put a hold on them,

I’m really thrilled with these items and can hardly wait to see them!

The first kit is Bucilla Fascination #8602 size 90×103. This kit was featured in “Living for Young Homemakers” magazine. Below is a sample of the fine workmanship on the finished panel – the other panels have all the appliques pinned in place.

This beautiful kit comes complete with thread, embroidery floss and lavender bias binding.

PRICE: $275 USD + $25 USD SHIPPING for a total of $300 USD

Above is part of one of the blocks in Bucilla’s Colonial Chintz #8737  (90×103) which is based  on a Whig Rose design from the mid 1850’s. This vintage kit was featured in “Seventeen” magazine.

Two of the side panels are in progress, some pieces are pinned to the centre panels and the rest are all cut out and neatly sorted into envelopes. Complete with thread, embroidery floss, bias for flower stems  and bias binding to complete the quilt in yellow.

PRICE: $275 USD + $25 USD SHIPPING for a TOTAL of $300 USD

The last vintage kit for today is Bucilla  Pansy Garden #8814 (90×103) which is a classic. Again, part of the kit has been completed and the work is exquisite. The rest of the applique pieces are pinned to the unworked panels and I must note a small number may be missing. I can ascertain how many are not in place and matching the solid colour pieces should not be too difficult. I can do this or the purchaser may wish to do it. 

PRICE: $275 USD + $25 USD SHIPPING for a TOTAL of $300USD
THIS ITEM IS ON HOLD  Aug 21/10

Email mailto:janet@novascotiaquilts.com to reserve this vintage applique kit

That’s all for now, but check back as I have some lovely new cross stitch vintage quilt kits and some new doublestencil and Spartex wholecloth  kits to list later this weekend.

VINTAGE QUILT KITS: AN UPDATE

The other day I was going through my inventory of vintage quilt kits and realized that I have many I haven’t yet posted. So I’ve just spent the afternoon taking photographs and noting down details about each kit. All these kits have been carefully stored and in some cases are still unopened from the factory.

If you see a kit you would like to purchase, email me mailto:janet@novascotiaquilts.com and I will reserve it for you and give you payment details.

Above is a Paragon #01188 Applique quilt kit, 100% cotton and 82×97 or double bed size. It is a Baltimore style design in shades of blue and rose calico and solids – really pretty!! It is called “Garden Bouquet” and I’ve been waiting a long time to find this one aain!

Price: for Paragon Garden Bouquet $275 USD + $25 SHIPPING for a TOTAL of $300 USD

ON HOLD! DECEMBER  29/10   SOLD

 

 

Above is Paragon’s vintage applique quilt kit “American Glory”  #00147; 81×97 inches worked in reproduction calico and pre-dating  the bicentennial in 1976 by quite a few years. All pieces are 100% cotton and are to be appliqued onto 100% ecru cotton. It should make a lovely statement on an antique bed.  This is a very rare quilt!
PRICE: $300USD + $25 USD SHIPPING for a TOTAL of  $325  USDOO

Next up is a Progress Applique quilt kit called “Americana”  , 81×97 inches finished size. This kit is one a whie background with the eagle and stars appliqued in a lovely shade of ochre . Again, this kit was inspired by the bicentennial but appeared on the market some time before that date. Patriotic quilts had a new popularity at the end of the Second World War and the Korean conflict and haven’t yet waned in popularity. All materials again are 100% cotton and Progress kits are known for their quality.

PRICE $275 USD + $25 USD SHIPPING for a TOTAL of $300 USD

The quilt kit below is another Progress #1507  full sized kit – 79×97 finished size. It makes a bold 70’s statement with the “Garden Flowers” in a central oval cartouche with swags in each corner on the border of the quilt. All 100% cotton and lovely calico prints. In immaculate condition too!

PRICE: $250 USD + $25 USD SHIPPING for a TOTAL of $275 USD for “Garden Flowers”

The above , of course, is a classic and it has been out of stock for some time. At last I found one! Progress vintage Tree of Life Applique quilt kit 79×97 completely intact right down to the calico bias binding and carefully stored – you’ll love this one – 100% cotton materials.
