Beatrix Potter, Holly Hobbie and Walt Disney’s Bambi – quilt kits and more!

The next few posts will concentrate on children’s and babies’ vintage quilt kits.  Today I wil be describing several kits I have in my current inventory that are classic themes from the past with current interest for collectors.

All three of these kits have accompanying themed decorative items suitable for your child’s retro nursery. 

Above is Paragon’s 1972 Holly Hobbie quilt top kit – this kit comes ready to quilt and can be as complex or as simple as you care to make it. This kit will finish to crib size or with the addition of a border or two will fit a youth or twin bed. Team it with the sampler shown below and this will be the beginning of a sweet decor for a little girl’s room.

You heard it here – the next vintage decorating wave to hit North America will be the 70’s and 80’s -  vintage quilt kits will help move it along, and I certainly have lots of them!

The Paragon sampler kit above makes up to  11×14 inches and the frame, backing board and floss is complete in the package – Holly is entertaining a friend at tea in this darling picture. Quick and easy to complete.

Beatrix Potter is always a favourite!!! I have had all three of he quilt kits in this JCA series, but can’t find them readily these days on the secondary market  and can’t keep them in stock. They are no longer made.

At the moment I have this version: Mrs. Bunny rocking her baby to sleep in her arms with ihe the cradle at her feet – done in strong pastels this pre-quilted kit comes with the floss to embroider it – a lovely crib quilt or wallhanging!

A collection of many cross stitch charts for various useful and decorative nursery items shown above, and below a traditional birth sampler to complete for your child or grandchild.


PRICE: each leaflet $8USD or buy all three for $20 – shipping free w9ith the above quilt kit or $3 for one, two or three leaflets


First released in the mid 1940’s, Walt Disney’s “Bambi” became a classic film and inspired many decorative and playtime items – here are two of them.

The first is a 40×60 quilt kit for embroidery – this prefinished 100% cotton  quilt comes complete with Peri Lusta embroidery floss. It is #0522Q and also has instructions in the sealed package.

PRICE: $175USD + $20USD your share of insured and trackable postage

The picture also shows a sweet growth chart – also by Paragon. The design is stamped on 100% cotton with a prefinished edge and is complete with peri lusta floss, a hanging cord and hanging rod – a measuring tape is ready to be fixed to the edge and full instructions to complete this growth chart are included in the sealed package.

Vintage Cross Stitch Quilts for Small Children

Today I am listing three sweet vintage cross stitch quilt kits for baby or small child.
One each by Paragon, Progress/Tobin and Bucilla. These are becoming harder to find on the secondary market as they have been out of print for many years.

Above is the Walt Disney trademarked Bambi kit. Bambi themed decor was popular from the early 1940’s when the animated feature length movie was made. This quilt kit comes complete with the threads needed to complete embroidery. Crib sized.
PRICE: $75 USD + shipping SOLD APRIL 29/10

Bucilla produced this very popular child’s bed quilt. This kit is youth bed size 54×72 and comes complete with all threads needed and preprinted dotted lines for quilting. If desired, this quilt kit could be enlarged by a border to fit a full sized twin bed rather than the youth bed size. I suspect this quilt kit dates to the 1950’s judging by the colours used and the style of the design. A treasure!!

PRICE: $85 USD + shipping

Above is the precious Sweet Dreams by Progress/Tobin. A baby with a teddy bear. Sentiments from a more innocent time!! Apparently a bib kit was also available for embroidery. This kit comes pre-quilted and if desired I can give you a tutorial on embroidering with little or no trace on the back. This kit is crib sized. PRICE: $75 USD + shipping
