FREE SHIPPING IN NORTH AMERICA: VINTAGE QUILT KITS

At the Quilt Show – Quilts at the Harbour – a few years ago – do try to attend if you are around the Hall’s Harbour area the last weekend in September – the 28th and 29th - it’s always a fun time!

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

A FEW WORDS ABOUT SHIPPING: This past winter has seen an astronomical rise in shipping costs in both Canada and the United States. Of course this impacts sellers and buyers both! I know I look twice these days at costs  for shipping when thinking about buying online. A good rule of thumb is – how easily can I source this item locally? Can I source it locally at all? And finally if I can source it will the cost of gasoline to go and get it be just as expensive as having it shipped? I regularly order a 6 month supply of fair trade organic coffee from a local roastery who give a discount for larger purchases and will ship direct to my local post office – otherwise it would be a round trip of at least 70 miles and the use of several hours of my time – so buying online can be a real saving!

With a specialty item such as vintage quilt kits, your chances of sourcing the item you want in the local marketplace can be slim. My inventory, which is the largest in North America, offers you lots of options.

I have always charged less for shipping than the actual cost to do so, and have in the past offered free shipping to any address in North America. I am doing so again - it runs from today until midnight May 31, 2013. Buy one or several with no charge for shipping which includes insurance, tracking and airmail post. You won’t be sorry you did – this offer applies to any item currently listed on this site.

                  FREE SHIPPING TO ANY ADDRESS IN NORTH AMERICA UNTIL MAY 31/13!!

VINTAGE CROSS STITCH QULT KITS WITH FLOSS

 

All sorts of things turned up in the inventory I recently did of my stock of vintage applique, cross stitch and wholecloth kits.  One of the most striking things I began to notice as i went through container after container of kits was the large number of cross stitch quilt kits I have with their floss kits attached or vintage skeins of embroidery floss that the owner had purchased and put with her kit. So, without further rambling comment, I’m going to show you loads of pictures and tell you how you can own one of these lovely kits cmplete with floss so you can start working on it as soon as it arrives.


(By the way, I managed somehow to get some pictures out of order – this picture below  goes with the description of ‘Remembrance’ a few jumps below – sorry!!)

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

 

Above, I’m showing a partially completed kit called “Lancaster”, by Bucilla  #3637 , in double bed size- this comes with sufficient floss in two shades of blue to finish this quilt top. In addition I have another unstarted kit that comes complete with the untouched floss kit in gold. Choose either!

PRICE: LANCASTER unstarted, in gold:  $290USD includs floss kit + $30USD shipping, insurance and tracking

                 LANCASTER partially completed with floss: $290USD + $30 shipping, insurance and tracking

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

Above is shown Bucilla’s Regency $3376, a lovely classic pattern based on a 19th century quilt. This double bed sized kit comes complete with the floss kit, wich includes a gold blending filament to enhance the design. This filament was not found in all the floss kits, and is impossible to source new now – I know, as I tried to help a quilter source some and had no success.

PRICE: Bucilla #3376 “Regency” double  $290USD floss kit included + $30shipping, tracking and insurance

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

Below, there is a photo of one of two identical single bed sized (72×103) kits  Remembrance that come complete with floss – one of them has been started and the other is unopened – the floss must have been seperately sourced, since it is Peri Lusta which was the gold standard in floss and is no longer being produced.

I’m not positive, but I may also have a double bed sized quilt kit in this pattern – contact me – janet@novascotiaquilts.com  if you’d like me to look and see if I do……………..

PRICE: a pair of “Remebrance” single sized quilt kits with floss  $375USD + $30USD shipping, insurance and tracking

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

 

 Here is “Songbirds” which has got to be one of the prettiest kits around! double bed size and unopened floss kit.

PRICE: Songbirds   $290USD, floss kit included + $30USD shipping, tracking and insurance 

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

 Another sweet kit – lots of roses – Briar Rose – in the pink colourway floss kit included as shown on this double bed sized quilt kit.

PRICE:  Briar Rose double size with floss  $290USD + $30 shipping, tracking and insurance

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

PRICE: $275USD floss included + $30USD shipping, tracking and insurance

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

 Above is Bucilla #3218 Acorn Harvest in double/queen – 90×103 complete with floss kit in lovely autumn colours. This pattern follows a traditional oak leaf and acorn wreath pattern popular in applique quilts before 1900 

PRICE:  $290USD + $30USD shipping, traking and insurance

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

Above is the lovely vintage Bucilla cross stitch quilt kit Williamstown, and you can take your choice of either a deep red or a darker blue when you purchase it complete with floss kit. This kit is 90×103 so will fit a queen sized mattress.

PRICE:  Williamstown by Bucilla 90×103 complete with floss kit $290USD + $30USD shipping, tracking and insurance

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

 

Another great kit – this one is “Berry Patch” by Bucilla complete with a sealed floss kit. This double cross stitch quilt kit was manufactured in 1974. A lovely choice – this wil be an heirloom to pass down in your family if you hoose to make it.

PRICE:  Berry Patch by Bucilla double size complete with floss kit  $290USD + $30USD shipping, tracking and insurance

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

Another double bed sized quilt kit, this is “Gingham Daisy” by Bucilla #3633, and comes complete with the floss kit to complete it. A sweet quilt to make for a teen daughter or grand daughter, this one should be fun to do.

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

 

Below are two kits complete with floss in a size that is hard to find. These quilts, when fished will fit a twin bed in the case of Seven Seas, or a youth bed in the case of Jack and Jill. Both these kits are manufactured in the USA by Bucilla.

It’s hard to find a kit that is appropriate for a boy, and this one is very well suited, with its nautical motif and dark, strong colours for the embroidery – ideal for a young boy who has outgrown the babyish cartoon themed bedding popular these days. The quilt finishes to 64×90 so will be useful for a long time as a bed quilt. The floss supplied is shown below.

PRICE: Twin sized “Seven Seas” by Bucilla complete with floss $195USD + $25 shipping, insurance and tracking

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

And finally, a classic 1950’s kit by Bucilla: Jack and Jill, measuring  54×72 to fit a twin as a coverlet, or a youth bed as a quilt – this one also has the floss supplied in the package. This  is a natural for that retro decorated nursery!!!

PRICE: $175USD includes floss + $25 shipping, insurance and tracking

TWO MORE VINTAGE QUILT KITS

 

I’m always amazed that I can still find vintage kits that I have never acquired before, even after collecting for all these years. I have two new ones to show you today, and hope you find them as exquisite as I have.

The first is an applique kit, put out by Bucilla (#3127)  in the period  around 1950-1960. This kit is called Mount Vernon, which was the name of George Washington’s private family estate in Virginia, and the lovely mansion which stood among outbuildings and gardens and plantings which made it a self-sufficient small community.

The design is a series of floral wreaths arranged in an oval and surrounded by the popular early 19th century design of swags and tassels – this design was popular in all forms of the decorative arts during the Federal Period of the new Republic. The classic colours of red and green are used against a clean white 100% cotton background and this will make up into a striking quilt that will become an heirloom piece to be passed down in your family.

This amazing quilt kit is still sealed in its original cellophane wrapper, and is sized at 84×100.

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

SOLD! My April 2013 newsletter wasn’t in folks’ inboxes 5 minutes before this kit sold to a list member!

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

My second find today is the sweet, country-style cross stitch kit “Homestead” #1572 put out by Progress in 100% cotton – it is stitched in country colours and is from the decade 1960-1970 I believe. It comes complete with the lovely floss kit to complete it and the kit is to fit a king sized bed – 108 inches wide by 103 inches long. It is still sealed in the original package and in immaculate condition.

This will make a simply lovely project to work on during the long days of summer and then you’ll be able to do the quilting during the cooler winter days.

The centre of the quilt is made up of traditional sampler motifs of a floral basket, and a house with trees and posies and a fence. A lovely vining border of flowers completes the quilt.

Below are two scans showing you front and back of the still sealed package of floss supplied – lovely vintage colours. Floss is by DMC and Royal Mouline.

PRICE: Progress cross stitch kit Homestead #3127 and floss kit as well:

                size 108×103 $290USD + shipping $30USD = $320USD

Contact me: janet@novascotiaquilts.com to put a hold on either item or arrange for purchase.

And keep checking back – I’m about to list more recent acquisitions.

VINTAGE PROGRESS AND PARAGON CROSS STITCH QUILT KITS

          

 

Today’s post will feature vintage cross stitch quilt kits from Paragon, with one entry from Progress. Both Paragon and Progress have a fine reputation for quality materials and good design. In some cases I also have the original thread kits from PeriLusta and these are no longer being manufactured, so rarely show up on the secondary market. In some cases where there is no thread kit I may be able to help out with supplies in the large quantities called for and at a somewhat better price than the current nearly a dollar a skein that many stores are asking.         

          

Paragon cross stitch quilt kit 01167 Baltimore Bride's Quilt 90x103 with thread kit

         

 
 
Above is Paragon #01167, the very popular  and hard to source Baltimore Bride’s Quilt in a double/queen 90×103. It comes complete with the authentic PeriLusta thread kit which is almost never seen now.

I may have sufficient thread in the various colourways to supply you, but it will be DMC, not the vintage PeriLusta – we can discuss this.      

ON HOLD JULY 3/11

Paragon – 01193 cross stitch – Rosebud – partially completed with threads double 84×102

          

Here is a lovely vintage Paragon #01193 Rosebud sized for a double – 84×102. It has been about half completed and has with it all the thread (and more!) necessary to complete it. Like all quilt kits that have ben worked on, it has a few “beauty spots” that in my experience with completing several will lighten cpnsiderably on the firsat washing once quilted and on subsequent washings fade to the poinnt of disappearing.          

 

          

PRICE: $260USD + $20USD shipping = $280
