Today I am continuing to post my inventory of classic vintage Bucilla applique quilt kits. This one is “The Living Rose” which was offered in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s.
The colours a bright and vibrant rose, coral and gentle red with two shades of green against a soft white background. The design is the traditional favourite of intertwining wreaths with a scattering of single blossoms in the middle of the quilt.
The colours ae unfaded and the instructioons are intact and include directions for hand embroidered embellishments. Lovely!
