VINTAGE WHOLECLOTH OR APPLIQUE QUILT KITS

Recently I have sold five wholecloth quilt kits! I’m delighted, of course, that my customers are choosing these lovely kits, but I’m at a loss at the moment to re-stock. I spent the day contacting all my sources and came up empty – none available at the moment. In addition to these three possibilities below, I currently have several Benartex queen sized kits in stock – Floral Bouquet, and Feathered Pineapple come to mind – ask me about them: janet@novascotiaquilts.com

Today I want to post about the versatility of several vintage quilt kits I have in my inventory. One is designed as a wholecloth quilt kit and the other two can be finished in the wholeloth style or with applique as well. Two of these lovely kits are available with coordinating wallhanging or baby’s quilt. More details below:

This interesting kit is  inspired by a mid-nineteenth century quilt in the Smithsonian’s Museum collection. It is a Baltiimore Album style quilt measuring 88×114 inches . This size kit does not come with backing, but the wallhanging/baby’s quilt kit shown above the bed in the picture  is available in stock too and comes with backing. All coloured fabrics are contained in the kit.

PRICE: Floral Album queen/king size 88×114  $395USD + $30USD shipping tracking and insurance

                 Floral Album baby’s quilt/wallhanging 40×40  $175USD + $20USD shipping and tracking

                          COMBINED SHIPPING for both kits $30USD tracking and insurance included

Another Spartex/Doublestencil is the lovely Pennsylvania Folk Art II Kit. I have this design available in double/queen which comes with no backing, and in the baby’s quilt/wallhanging size of 43×47, complete with backing. These kits could be done using the fabric for applique as shown and supplied, or you might decide to choose your own fabrics. I have seen both quilts done as a wholecloth quilts and I’m inclined to prefer this very simple and subtle treatment.

PRICE: Pennsylvania Folk Art II  double/queen kit $250USD + $30 USD shipping, insured and trackable

                  Pennsylvania Folk Art II baby quilt/wallhanging $175USD + $20 shipping, insured and trackable

                                Combined shipping for the two items: $30USD w tracking and insurance

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

And last: the very lovely, formal and classic Hagerstown Feather , which was produced by Penn Prints, another name under which Spartex/Doublestencil traded. So all three kits are from the Spartanburg, South Carolina textile mill, made of finest quslity 100% American made and grown cotton. This firm is long out of business, the mill that was the lifeblood of this small southern city silent and vacant now.

These kits  rarely shows up in the secondary market and I have acquired very few in the last year or so.  Interest remains high in these classic vintage kits, judging by he inquiries I receive.

PRICE: Hagerstown Feather double/queen size top  $250USD + $30USD shipping, insurance and tracking
