More vintage applique and cross stitch quilt kits

Seeing old friends back in inventory again is always great, but it’s even better when I find some items I’ve wanted to get hold of for years with little success because they so rarely appear on the secondary market: take a quick peek at what I have in stock and on its way to me

 

This one above – Cross Stitch American Eagle by Bucilla a double/queen kit is sometimes called Liberty on some packaging. This was a kit developed from a traditional pattern and was presented in time for the US Bicentennial in 1976.

PRICE: $225USD + shipping

***********************************

Below is a picture of the wonderful vintage PeriLusta thread kit that goes with American Sampler

this beautiful Paragon #01171 double/queen cross stitch kit. I know the picture says it’s a single, but I just keep one picture on file. This kit is harder to find these days too, so I’m happy to have it in stock again.

PRICE: $265 USD includes the thread kit + shipping will be about $15USD

************************************

***********************************

After a bit of a wait, I have managed to replace my Paragon Country Garden #01175, 90×103 a double/queen – this one won’t stay in stock long, judging by my past experience!

PRICE: $225USD + shipping     

********************************

This kit is another Paragon cross stitch kit called Renaissance. It is a king size at 108 wide and 103 long. I had never seen this kit before and I’ve been collecting for years!

PRICE: $225USD + shipping  SOLD FEB 16/11

***********************************

This is also a kit I had depaired of ever finding. Now, granted it came out of package with the front colour picture lost, but it has 4 pages on instructions, thread list and graphs and I think it’s fairly easy to see that it will be striking. It can be worked either in a two colour variation or in the traditional mid 19th century shades of two values of red, two of green and two of yellow. A treasure indeed!

PRICE: $225USD + shipping

****************************************

And finally – nother that is new to my inventory. I’m thrilled to have this one. This is a Paragon cross stitch kit called “Iris” and is a double. The design and placement of the irises is very reminiscent of an applique pattern in te Mountain Mist Blue Book, and is very 30’s. I’m so tempted to hang on to this one and do it for myself. I need to be realistic though – too many quilts and too little time! Ah well.

PRICE: $225USD + shipping

So long for now – stay warm and safe – it was still  light way after 6PM today – spring is just around the corner.

  • Elizabeth:

    Do you know of a Paragon Sampler that matches the Americana quilt (#0175)? I would appreciate any suggestions on finding that design. Thank you!

  • janet:

    Hello Elizabeth: Are you referring to the framable sampler containing the central motif featured on the quilt kit?” If so – I know that these stamped sampler kits existed, but have yet to run across one. Surprisingly, I have had anoter enquiry along the same lies, and responded that I had never had one in stock, but if the same motif were worked in matching colours on Aida cloth as a counted cs sampler, it would be a fair match. I am going to try to see once again, if I can find such a kit.

  • Joanie:

    I just found a completed cross stitch sampler at an estate sale. It needs cleaning, so in dismantling the frame found the printed information on the edge of the linen. I have no idea how old it is, I’m figuring 70’s – 80’s.

  • janet:

    Hi Joanie: Is it the sampler that matches Paragonb bed quilt kit 01171 Americana Sampler – if so you are indeed lucky to find it!! Was the finished quilt also among the items for sale?
    Good luck with cleaning and reframing it!

  • Victoria:
