The Traditional Wholecloth Quilt – kits to create an heirloom

 
 
Recently I’ve had some inquiries about traditional wholecloth quilt kits, and at the same time I’ve been completing a new inventory of kits I currently have in stock.
It turns out I haven’t really promoted these lovely kits for several years now, and have quite a few in stock at the moment. Below I will feature two Benartex kit designs that I have in stock…

Benartex - Anchors Aweigh by Holice Turnbow 40x54, includes back and binding

 

Above is the lovely “Anchors Aweigh” crib or youth bed size wholecloth quilt kit by Holice Turnbow – this is such a versatile size for a quilt – it makes up fairly quickly, can be used in many settings and because it is an off-white or ecru fits well into many decorating schemes and is very easy to wash and keep fresh.  

 
*******************************************************  
It’s my understanding that the Holice Turnbow designed kits by Benartex are still available, if somewhat scarce, but I’ve not found any indication that the Spartex/Doublestencil kits are still being made. Occasionally one will turn up in the secondary market. My next post – next week I hope will feature some of these kits.
  
The machinery to produce the very wide printed tops is now vintage if not antique and it has become increasingly difficult to find or make parts for this machinery as it wears out.
 

Benartex - wholecloth - feathered pineapple - available 86x106 and 40x40

 

Above is a picture taken from the front of the Benartex package, showing the “Feathered Pineapple” design – a classic 19th century design I currently have available in both a king/queen size at 86×106 and also in a baby size at 40×40 - the smaller size would make a luxurious tabletopper for afternoon tea and of course would look lovely over the back of a sofa, thrown over a cupboard door or as a wallhanging. Picture it enhancing a christening robe for a darling baby!  

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

Keep in mind that I’ll be happy to provide tips to help you succeed in making yourself a lovely heirloom quilt that is true to 19th century traditions, and can also source wide backing material and the Quilter’s Dream cotton batting to ensure your quilt drapes beautifully. Contact me: janet@novascotiaquilts.com to discuss shipping one of these scarce and lovely kits to you!  

Enjoy this long weekend coming up – summer is passing all too soon! Next week I will feature more wholecloth quilt kits, this time by Spartex/Doublestencil!  

Best regards ~ Janet  

Migrating My Blog

Good morning everyone. This is the last day I can post using blogger.com, and while my blog is migrating to WordPress I won’t be able to post. You will still be able to see me at http://www.novascotiaquilts.com/, but I won’t be able to tell you about all my nice new acquisitions for a while.
Recently I have found a lovely small wholecloth quilt kit, suitable for a child or  as a tabletopper, sofa throw or wallhanging.
In addition, I have  a lead on another nice Dogwood applique quilt kit by Bucilla, and a wonderful Americana applique quilt kit also by Bucilla.

If you are interested in any of my recent acquisitions, drop a line to me: janet@novascotiaquilts.com and I will get back to you promptly.

Meanwhile a few pictures to tempt you!
I will not price these vintage kits until they arrive and I can examine them for cleanliness and completeness, but you can put a hold on any of them and have right of first refusal on them.
Have a lovely spring weekend!
