Archive for the ‘Bucilla Quilt kit’ Category
Today has been just a lovely day, much more like midsummer than early fall, and it’s so nice to have the door and windows open while enjoying going back and forth to do chores that won’t be as pleasant once winter is here!
I’m reminded that shopping for the Christmas season will be upon us before we know it, so I will get busy on listing all the items in my vintage quilt kit inventory.
Below are the two lovely Bucilla applique quilt kits that have Dogwood flowers as their subject.
Above is Bucilla’s other kit featuring Dogwood flowers: this is Bucilla #3128 “Dogwood” and this kit, too, is in excellent condition. This kit is also 84×100 in size and is a trellis-like design. Beautiful colours in both kits – either will become an heirloom treasure.
Get in touch with me: firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss purchase. I will be happy to put a hold on either of these lovely vintage applique kits.
Talk to you soon – JANET
Today I want to show you a lovely vintage applique quilt kit. This kit is one I’ve only had in stock once before and it wasn’t long before it flew out the door.
Having seen it now in both colour choices I would be hard pressed to choose my favourite, but think it may be the rose colourway. Although this kit has been opened, it is unstarted and in beautiful condition and of course, includes the pre-made binding to complete it. Bucilla #8814 Pansy Garden, 90×103 applique quilt kit.
So today I am giving you a little preview of the listings I’ll be posting here over the next week or two.
I want to remind you that my kits are stored in a clean dustfree and pet free environment in plastic totes. Although I cannot guarantee that the sources I acquired these kits from were tobacco smoke free, I have an extremely sensitive sniffer and there’s no trace of smoke on any of them. I am a non-smoker, my house is a smoke free zone, and I no longer share my home with any pets. So that’s about as good as it can get!
As unstarted quilt kits get harder to find, I have been considering acquiring some finished quilts that have been made from kits – above is a treasure that was made from Bucilla’s Living Rose 3285 Applique kit. It is 74×88 and I also have the kit itself – unstarted and measuring 84x 100. Pricing to come when the finished quilt and the kit are listed. If you want to discuss price or put a HOLD on any of these items shown today get in touch: email@example.com
The kit shown above – bucilla 8814 “Pansy Garden” is a double size and I had given up the idea of ever having it in stock again. The kit came in two colour choices and this one is the rose coloured choice – striking!!!
Watch this spot as I begin to list my treasures and be sure to contact me to put a hold on anything you are interested in purchasing – these kits don’t last long!
Enjoy your day – and may the luck of the Irish be with you!!!
Hugs – Janet
Be sure to check back often as I post still more lovely vintage kits in lots of time for Christmas giving. Free shipping!!
Gradually I’m getting all my vintage quilt kits listed for sale. Time to reduce my collections!
Above is a single sized paragon cross stitch quilt kit based on a traditional applique pattern. There was a strong revival of interest in heritage quilts at about the time of the US Bicentennial in 1976, which also heralded a resurgence in quiltmaking that has not died down at all more than a quarter of a century later. This may be just the project you are looking for to dress up a spare room bed or give to a young girl. It’s small enough to be doable, but with a good choice of colours will make a strong statement in a traditionally furnished room.
PRICE: $135USD + shipping
And finally, a somewhat more recent but still vintage cross stitch kit, from the early 1980’s I think, and again by Bucilla. The colours suggested are lovely and although the pillow shams are not in this kit and I have not been able to find a pair to match, this is still a striking quilt kit. The price is certainly one that invites purchase of this hard to find kit. Again a queen/double size.
