Now and then I find an exceptional vintage quilt kit, and I am so excited to have acquired this one. It is a Lee Wards by Dexter #08-90541 “Pansy” vintage applique kit measuring 81×100 inches.
The first two pictures are of the kit in its original package and the other two, below, are of the various colours of pre-printed fabric and pre-made binding awaiting your cutting out and appliquing.
The above picture is a little cloudy and I will take better pictures when this vintage kit gets here in a few days – watch for the added pictures!
PRICE: $425USD for this lovely unstarted and complete kit + $30USD shipping = $455
Contact me firstname.lastname@example.org if you want me to put a Hold on this treasure for you!
Above is the picture on the front cover of this recently acquired pair of 90×103 double/queen vintage applique quilt kits by Bucilla #8525 Colonial Bouquet in the salmon pink colour choice. The first of this lovely pair is still in its original folds and is complete and unstarted. The second of the pair has been started by an expert hand, but unfortunately, the pattern fabrics are no longer with the kit. It is possible to match the fabrics, but the double pink in the dark salmon may prove impossible to match exactly. I have lots of choices of repro 19th century double pinks to supply so maybe the second quilt will be a “scrappy” applique. Ask me.
Remember to click on the smaller pictures for enlargement in order to study detail. You have two choices for purchasing – you can either choose to buy both kits together, either with or without some fabric matches chosen from my huge stash of period and repro fabrics, or you can choose either the unstarted
kit or the started one to purchase seperately.
As you can see, the unstarted kit has lovely fabrics and a large amount of binding and flower stems, both pre-made bias.
PRICE: the pair #8525 Colonial Bouquet, as described $595USD for both + $30USD shipping = $625US
#8525 unstarted and all complete $395USD + $20USD shipping = $415USD
#8525 started and incomplete $225USD + $20USD shipping = $245USD
Contact me – email@example.com to discuss purchase – get me to put a hold on this lovely item – it won’t last!
Today has been just a lovely day, much more like midsummer than early fall, and it’s so nice to have the door and windows open while enjoying going back and forth to do chores that won’t be as pleasant once winter is here!
I’m reminded that shopping for the Christmas season will be upon us before we know it, so I will get busy on listing all the items in my vintage quilt kit inventory.
Below are the two lovely Bucilla applique quilt kits that have Dogwood flowers as their subject.
Above is Bucilla’s other kit featuring Dogwood flowers: this is Bucilla #3128 “Dogwood” and this kit, too, is in excellent condition. This kit is also 84×100 in size and is a trellis-like design. Beautiful colours in both kits – either will become an heirloom treasure.
Get in touch with me: firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss purchase. I will be happy to put a hold on either of these lovely vintage applique kits.
Talk to you soon – JANET
