VINTAGE APPLIQUE QUILT KITS – PART 1

Shown above is Paragon #01188 Garden Bouquet – this kit is a double/queen and is factory sealed – in pristine condition and ready for your loving handwork. The colours have been updated in this early 70’s design to reflect current trends in home decorating and  are once again popular colours today. Coming in an off white background fabric and applique done in green and blue this kit when completed will make a lovely statement in your home!

PRICE: $425USD plus postage $35USDpayable by Paypal or by personal cheque inUSD – tracking and insurance always included

Above is another beauty from Paragon. Ths time it i

s an early one from the pre – WW2 period – prior to the United States’s entry in 1942. It is ” Wild Rose”  a wreath design. There is little remaining to do in this beautifully appliqued quilt top – you will add the final touches of embroidery and then will be ready to sandwich the top and beign hand quilting!

This particular design is not available anywhere I have been searching for it and I have concluded that it was a design whose manufacture was cut short with few having reached consumers.

This lovely design will be unique when displayed in your home. In addition the original owner had everything she was using to work on the quilt stashed in a vintage shirt box and the contents are in themselves fascinating – a window into the the past!! All contents will be included for you to enjoy!

PRICE: $425USD plus postage of $35USD – payable by Paypal or personal cheque in USD. Tracking and insurance always included.

Above is pictured the very lovely Paragon American Glory #01147. This kit was designed and marketed in the lead up to the celebration of the American Bicentennial in 1976. The date of availability starts someyi e in the late 1960’s.

The colours are the clear, vibrant calico prints being sold during the 60’s and 70’s that were compatible to those available in the late 1800’s.

This kit is available in two forms – one with a dark green calico and one with a lighter green – I have both – the light green has been opened and started while the darker green is still factory sealed.

Your choice!

NOTE: In going through my inventory I have discovered that I also have the cross stitch version- it works up in a more muted but

still vibrant style in the red green and yellow against a white background – a great project for the winter! Contact me janet@novascotiaquilts.com for details.

PRICE: $425USD plus $35 USD for postage

Above is Bucilla’s Morning Glories #1886 – this quilt kit was current in the late thirties and early 50’s prior to rthe US entering WW2 in 1942.It is a beautiful design featuring the rich pastel solids so popular during

the late 30’s.   In its original box and unstarted the kit is pristine. I have not seen this kit in the secondary market for over five years.

PRICE: $425USD plus $35USD for postage – ON HOLD!!!

The picture above is a little teaser for my next post, which I am currently working on. This is Bucilla’s “Garden Poppies” #8977 – I have both the colourways: red or yellow in factory fresh unstarted condition and several other kits also depicting poppies – and in add the veryrate and lovely “Miss Wildflower”

which is started and awaiting your competion.

Check back in the next day or so to see these beauties!

In the meanwhile enjoy a lovely fall weekend.

I’m going to go sit on my deck overlooking the harbour of Souris Prince Edward Island.

Enjoy!!

  • MARIE A MEZZADRI:

    Hi, I contacted you regarding Garden Bouquet Quilt from Paragon Needlecraft and the number on the the package is #01137 and you show it as 01188. My 95 year old aunt is driving me nuts and now wants to purchase this item. When I contacted you, it was less cost. I would like to know if it still available.

    Would you have a phone number that we can talk to you and ask some questions before we make the purchase if you still have it.

    Thanking you in advance

    Marie and Rose

    Good Morning Marie and Rose: I will email you with my personal details – phone nmber.
    A few brief words – I have this kit in stock at the moment, I’m finding it harder and harder to source these lovely kits, and when I do they are more expensive to purchase. The number I quote is the correct one and the kit, from the early 70’s is factory fresh and unopened.
    Making these kits is not difficult and I can offer help with support and tips.
    Please contact me by [hone when I emal you,or if you prefer we can email back and fort as well.
    Thanks for your interest in this pretty quilt kit.
    Janet
