SOME VINTAGE and CLASSIC WHOLECLOTH QUILT KITS

Doublestencil wholecloth quilt kit includes matching backing queen 90x103 in tea-dye

above kits  NOW SOLD!! 

A few posts back I promised to list my full sized wholecloth quilt kits and got distracted by a large fresh shipment of vintage quilt kits. I’ve finished oohing and aahing over them and stashed them away after posting about several of them. 

Today it’s time to return to my promise and list these lovely classic wholecloth quilt kits!
Wholecloth quilts have a long tradition in the quilt histories of several countries- Wales, northern England and late 18th century and early 19th century North America come to mind.
The kits I’ll offer you today follow closely those traditions, and especially that of North America. You can’t go wrong with these lovely kits – amply sized queens at 90 inches wide finished size and between 108 and 113 inches long. 100% ecru cotton, the one above even comes with a matching backing specifically made for it.
PRICE: Doublestencil Queen Anne Star and matching backing 90×108 $295USD + $35USD  – SOLD
 
 

Spartex wholecloth quilt kit - Hagerstown Feather queen in ecru

 

Above is Spatex Hagerstown Feather – a quilt kit derived from an antique quilt in a museum collection. Spartex quilt kits appear to be out of print – the firm, which was based in North Carolina is no longer in business, so the kits appear now and then in the secondary market only. This is a queen sized kit and is in an ecru shade.

Above is another traditional wholecloth pattern – it’s by Doublestencil and is called American Star. Measuring 90×113 this is a more than ample kit in an antique off whiute and is based on a quilt in the Smithsonian Institution collection.
