100% cotton Progress Vintage Applique Quilt Kits for sale

I’ve carefully examined and inventoried a large group of vintage quilt kits I’ve just acquired.
Here is the information on a group of six Progress Applique Quilt Kits, dating from the late 50’s and early 60’s – these are classic in design and range from the very subtle Progress #1462 – Majestic Poppy, which I posted about last time:  
 http://www.novascotiaquilts.com/2011/07/progress-1642-majestic-poppy-applique-quilt-kit-as-seen-in-hersschners-1962-63-catalogue.html click this link to view lots of derails on this beautiful kit – I am finding myseld so-o-o tempted to start this one, but I’ll hold off and give my customers first dibs!
  
The others  are  classics in jewel bright, glowing colours enhanced by touches of hand embroidery.
 

Progress #1492 Tree of Life 79x97

 

Tree of Life – #1492 is a perennial favourite, and is hard to keep in stock. I have it on hand again, and am offering it in sealed condition!  

PRICE: Tree of Life, double    $395USD + $30USD Shipping = $425USD
 
 

Progress #1496 Americana (Eagle and Stars) 71x97 finished size

 

The above quilt kit, is another favourite, being a patriotic quilt which has been available in one form or another since the late 1800’s – this is a winner as it’s a more subtle, traditional quilt than the red white and blue ones and will suit a period room so well!  

PRICE: Americana, double, $395USD + $30USD shipping = $425 USD  

 
 

Progress #1507 Garden Flowers 79x97 finished size

 

This one is absolutely breathtaking!! One that seldom appears on the secondary market – I had it only once before, and had pretty much decided I wouldn’t find it again. but here it is!  

PRICE: Garden Flowers, double 79×97  $395USD + $30USD Shipping = $425 USD
 
  
 

Progress #1553 Majestic 79x97 finished size

 

I recently sold the Majestic I had listed, but bonus! it appeared in the large group I recently acquired. So here it is again folks – it is based on the classic chintz palampores that came out of the Coromandel coast of India in the late 17th century, and took Europe by storm – they are still being manufactured by den Haan and Wagenmakker in Holland and I have my eye on one!!!  

Price: Majestic  double 79×97 finished size   $395USD _ $20USD Shipping = $415USD 

SOLD

Below is Progress #1403  The Iris, double sized finishes to 79×97. This is a lovely kit – very midcentury in feeling and showing lovely colour variations. This is the earlier version in cotton – the later one features 50/50 cotton polyester and is less desirable.  

 

PRICE: The Iris $395USD + $30USD shipping = $425USD

VINTAGE QUILT KITS: AN UPDATE

The other day I was going through my inventory of vintage quilt kits and realized that I have many I haven’t yet posted. So I’ve just spent the afternoon taking photographs and noting down details about each kit. All these kits have been carefully stored and in some cases are still unopened from the factory.

If you see a kit you would like to purchase, email me mailto:janet@novascotiaquilts.com and I will reserve it for you and give you payment details.

Above is a Paragon #01188 Applique quilt kit, 100% cotton and 82×97 or double bed size. It is a Baltimore style design in shades of blue and rose calico and solids – really pretty!! It is called “Garden Bouquet” and I’ve been waiting a long time to find this one aain!

Price: for Paragon Garden Bouquet $275 USD + $25 SHIPPING for a TOTAL of $300 USD

ON HOLD! DECEMBER  29/10   SOLD

 

 

Above is Paragon’s vintage applique quilt kit “American Glory”  #00147; 81×97 inches worked in reproduction calico and pre-dating  the bicentennial in 1976 by quite a few years. All pieces are 100% cotton and are to be appliqued onto 100% ecru cotton. It should make a lovely statement on an antique bed.  This is a very rare quilt!

Next up is a Progress Applique quilt kit called “Americana”  , 81×97 inches finished size. This kit is one a whie background with the eagle and stars appliqued in a lovely shade of ochre . Again, this kit was inspired by the bicentennial but appeared on the market some time before that date.

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!
