Unfortunately it was too wet to take this pristine quilt kit outside so I must apologize for the darkness and shadow in the pictures. I would rather have had enough natural light to avoid flash – but Hey Ho! what can you do? And we do need rain – smile.
I hope the pictures do show the crisp and clean condition of this beauty! Fresh and sweet smelling too!
I have just heard from the customer for whom I was holding this kit; she has bought the kit and tells me this story:
“I started that quilt when I was 18, back in 1971. I did all the embroidery and my grandma did the quilting. My goal was to do a quilt for each of my kids and this one was to be my daughter’s. In 2006, the quilt was stolen in a home burglary. After that, I did another embroidered quilt top to replace the Renaissance quilt, but always missed that first quilt. I got the idea to look for a kit like the original one and found your website. I was super excited to find one, only to learn that it was sold a week prior. However, you looked for another for me and I am buying it now. I can’t wait to get it and get started. It will help me to feel whole again!
By the way, a big Thank You!”
I’m thrilled to have been instrumental in finding this lovely vintage kit for this lady!
