                                                                ***************************************************

Today, I am featuring a large number of baby and youth quilt kits dating from the 1940’s to the late 1970’s. One of these would be ideal for you if you are a granny-in-waiting!

Contact me about any of these kits if you wish me to put a “Hold” on it – these are one of a kind and in most cases there is a long wait to find another.

                                   *****************************************************

  ABOVE: a vintage 1975 Paragon crib quilt with everything needed to complete it, floss and all. And who doesn’t like Sister Berta Hummel’s sweet artwork of babies, animals and childen?

PRICE:  $175USD + postage of $25USD

                                                                     *******************************************

ABOVE: another sweet Paragon  kit – crib sized 40×60 and again all you need to complete it, including floss - this dates to the late 50’s I’d say before the modernization of the beloved Disney characters. How easy it would be to accessorize your baby’s nursery with art work and toys with a Disney motif! i also have a darling grow char5t – contact me janet@novascotiaquilts.com to ask about it.

Price: $175USD + $25USD postage

                                                                          ***********************************

Holly Hobbie! Yet another Paragon kit – a classic from 1972 – this kit can be completed with just the centre panel to make a crib quilt or a wallhanging, or you may prefer to add a wide border and extend it to a youth/twin bed size. This is a fun project, and I can say that from personal experience since I completed one as a special order not too long ago. 

 PRICE: $150USD + $25USD shipping

                                                                        *****************************************

ABOVE: A youth bed sized quilt kit by Bucilla – size 52×72 with Jack and Jill to be done in cross stitch with the floss provided in the kit – this is one of the early ones and likely dates from pre-1955 – another classic and I haven’t seen another of these recently.

PRICE $175USD + $25 shipping

                                                                      ******************************************

This kit also comes with all needed floss – it’s called “Sweet Dreams”  and the kit is truly vintage – from the late 1940’s or very early 1950’s . Definitely a one-of-a-kind with the naive sentiments of another time!

PRICE: $175USD + $25USD shipping/postage

                                                                           ********************************************

Now for a couple of beautiful and very traditional wholecloth quilt kits sized perfectly for a baby, these can also be used later on as a wallhanging when baby has outgrown them, and what can be more practical than an off white quilt you can throw in the washer and dryer on gentle and lukewarm whenever you need to? These lovely quilts can function as a play mat too, or at the beach or in the garden – they’re so practical!

                                            ************************************************************

ABOVE is an out-of-print classic Pennsylvania Dutch small kit – you are looking at the one portrayed hanging on the wall, although I do have this in stock in double/queen, too, if you are interested. This small quilt kit is 43×47 – a great size – and comes complete with the printed fabrics to cut out for applique. Or you can choose to do it without, making it completely a wholecloth.

PRICE: $175USD + $25USD shipping/postage

                                                               *****************************************

ABOVE: a classic by Holice Turnbow for Benartex – Anchors Aweigh – this kit is a wholecloth sized 40×54 equally suitable for a  boy or girl and will provide an ageless look in any room – it could equally function as a snuggle quilt on your living room sofa, or a classic table cloth to show off your lovely china.

PRICE: $175USD + $25USD shipping/postage

And finally, ABOVE, a classic Startex/Penn Prints baby quilt – called Ba Bear, this one is 40×50 inches and again will be a very versatile piece as it can be washed countless times and only improves with wear.

PRICE: $165USD + $25USD shipping/postage
