Followers of Nova Scotia Quilts have been wondering  where I have gotten to.

I am most definitely still in business. I am settledin and living on thee edge  of the small community of Souris, in a lovely cottage  on the shore of Colville Bay in the east of the province. The view and the colours inspire me!

SOME WORDS ABOUT THE CURRENT MARKET IN VINTAGE QUILT KITS:

Over the last five years, it has become next toimpossible to source the earlier kits from the 30’s through to the late 70’s.

When they do appear on the secondary market they often have issues, and if not, are prohibitively priced.

Unfortuneately I have been unable to find any at allover the last three years. This does not mean however that my inventory is depleted and when I checked I found at least eighteen very desirable vintage applique quilt kits only a few of which have issuessuch as partial completion or missing pieces. Most are fresh and unstarted and some date to the late 30’s and early 40’s prior to the start of US involvement in WW2.

Over the bext two posts I will be showing these kits with current pricing and encourage you to act quickly on these treasures as it appears the market has moved o to the kits produced in the 80’s and 90’s as the boomers start to downsize. As my inventory shrinks
I doubt very much if I can replenish it so act now!

Stay tuned – more in the morning!

And remember that I have also got planned some popsts on my updated inventory of wholecloth kits and traditional cross stitch quilt kiys

Warm hugs – Janet

    I have a question regarding a vintage quilt which my aunt had made many years ago. The quilt was stolen or lost and she would like to make another one before she passes away. She is 95. She wanted to keep it as a family heirloom and she is so disappointed that it is gone. I would like to try to help her do this, but we need just one thing. It is the Quilt block to cross stitch and stamped on. She has everything else, but in the move, it was lost.

    You have listed the kit as #01188 Garden Bouquet quilt from Paragon. The pattern label shows it as 01137 90″ x 103″ quilt top stamped for appliqueing and quilting. I would like so much to find this or is there a way you can help me search for one.

    Thanking you in advance. Anything you can do will be greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Marie Mezzadri
