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

ON HOLD DECEMBER 29/10  SOLD

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

 ON HOLD DECEMBER 29/10   SOLD

 

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”

 

 ON HOLD DECEMBER 29/10   SOLD

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.

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

    Thanks for the inquiry. At the moment, I have only the two Bucilla vintage kits: Dogwood #3128, and Dogwood Blossom #1587. The Progress kit is very hard to find – I have not seen one in several years. Sorry I cannot be more helpful. If you might be interested in either of the two Bucilla kits, I can supply you with pictures.

  • Carmen:
