VINTAGE CROSS STITCH QULT KITS WITH FLOSS

 

All sorts of things turned up in the inventory I recently did of my stock of vintage applique, cross stitch and wholecloth kits.  One of the most striking things I began to notice as i went through container after container of kits was the large number of cross stitch quilt kits I have with their floss kits attached or vintage skeins of embroidery floss that the owner had purchased and put with her kit. So, without further rambling comment, I’m going to show you loads of pictures and tell you how you can own one of these lovely kits cmplete with floss so you can start working on it as soon as it arrives.


(By the way, I managed somehow to get some pictures out of order – this picture below  goes with the description of ‘Remembrance’ a few jumps below – sorry!!)

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

 

Above, I’m showing a partially completed kit called “Lancaster”, by Bucilla  #3637 , in double bed size- this comes with sufficient floss in two shades of blue to finish this quilt top. In addition I have another unstarted kit that comes complete with the untouched floss kit in gold. Choose either!

PRICE: LANCASTER unstarted, in gold:  $290USD includs floss kit + $30USD shipping, insurance and tracking

                 LANCASTER partially completed with floss: $290USD + $30 shipping, insurance and tracking

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

Above is shown Bucilla’s Regency $3376, a lovely classic pattern based on a 19th century quilt. This double bed sized kit comes complete with the floss kit, wich includes a gold blending filament to enhance the design. This filament was not found in all the floss kits, and is impossible to source new now – I know, as I tried to help a quilter source some and had no success.

PRICE: Bucilla #3376 “Regency” double  $290USD floss kit included + $30shipping, tracking and insurance

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

Below, there is a photo of one of two identical single bed sized (72×103) kits  Remembrance that come complete with floss – one of them has been started and the other is unopened – the floss must have been seperately sourced, since it is Peri Lusta which was the gold standard in floss and is no longer being produced.

I’m not positive, but I may also have a double bed sized quilt kit in this pattern – contact me – janet@novascotiaquilts.com  if you’d like me to look and see if I do……………..

Below are two kits complete with floss in a size that is hard to find. These quilts, when fished will fit a twin bed in the case of Seven Seas, or a youth bed in the case of Jack and Jill. Both these kits are manufactured in the USA by Bucilla.

It’s hard to find a kit that is appropriate for a boy, and this one is very well suited, with its nautical motif and dark, strong colours for the embroidery – ideal for a young boy who has outgrown the babyish cartoon themed bedding popular these days. The quilt finishes to 64×90 so will be useful for a long time as a bed quilt. The floss supplied is shown below.

    It is absolute torture to look at all these lovely kits. It’s good to know I’m not the only person who collects these kits — I think I have about five years worth of work ahead of me!
    I am wondering if you can help me out with something. I recently acquired a Bucilla Briar Rose quilt top (I think) but have no information at all about the colors. Is there any chance that you could direct me to a site or company that would have the list of floss colors for the top?
