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!

Some years ago I was lucky to find an immaculate, completed but unused quilt in this pattern and snapped it up – I’m looking now to downsize my collections. Watch this space as I preview some of the lovely vintage quilts in am selling between now and Christmas. 

This finished  quilt will be shown for sale at the 13th Annual Quilts at the Harbour Sale here in Hall’s Harbour on the 24th and 25th of September. To give those of you who have no opportunity of seeing it there a chance to purchase it I am offering it, no shipping cost in North America, at the same price I will offer it there and in addition if one of you out there in cyberspace purchases, I will still donate 20% of the sale to the church where the quilt show is held.  

Currently vintage and antique quilts in immaculate condition are realizing far less than their modern counterparts and I can pass on the great value to you:  

PRICE: Completed quilt from a kit in immaculate and unused condition $650USD – what a great gift this will make!
