Last Chance to order vintage quilt kits before next May!

I want to thank all my loyal customers who have placed so mny orders for vintage quilt kits during September. It seems there is going to be a whole lot of quilting going on this fall. And what a glorious fall it is turning out to be after a humid, sweltering and uninspiring summer!!
*************************************************

AND NOW TO MY BIG NEWS!!!

This stay at home quilting lady is going to turn into a snowbird – and I will be spending the wintert, starting later in November in the lovely hills and mountains of Panama, above the Pacific coastal plain. Here it is rarely over 80 degrees and it is a paradise for birdwatchers and nature lovers in general.

SO – I need to tell you that my online business will be on hiatus for the six months starting with November 15th!

What this means to you:

1) I will accept no new orders for my vintage quilt kits after the second week in November, and ALL payments must be received by the 15th November as that is the final shipping day

2) I will continue to answer emails with questions and will put holds on your wanted items, but no payment or delivery until the third week in May please.

3) I am available for advice and help anytime by email or by comments through my http://www.novascotiaquilts.com – my email remains the same janet@novascotiaquilts.com

4) ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Starting right now – if you buy more than one item from me, shipping will be free and in addition I will offer 10% off all merchandise purchased.

REMEMBRE: YOU WON”T BE ABLE TO PURCHASE ANY OF MY GREAT VINTAGE KITS FOR THE ENTIRE WINTER< SO STOCK UP NOW AT THESE GREAT PRICES>

ABOVE is a waterfall on a river near where I have rented a small house – a birdlover’s paradise and great for outdoor enthusiasts in general.

I’m hoping to start a few workshops on handquilting, handpiecing and needleturn applique using small group instruction wih a maximum of 6 people per group.

Below are two pictures of a selection of cushion sized wholecloth  squares I have chosen to take along with me – I will be kitting these up with backing, binding, Quilters’ Dream batting and YLI thread, along with a selection of Piecemakers quilting needles. Sound like fun?

Perhaps you’d like to order one of these kits and quilt along by email with the group on whichever day we end up meetimg?

Contact me: janet@novascotiaquilts.com –     the other workshop I’m thinking of is one I have always called barefoot quilting – no sewing machines,  no rotary cutters no glues or embellishments and minimal cost through tips on savvy shopping and internet use.  Just a needle, thread, a ruler and a pencil and scissors! Sound interesting? Lets talk about it – maybe a series of tutorials this winter on http://www.novascotiaquilts.com ?

BEST NEWS OF ALL!!! I had attemped to order this lovely kit which makes up into either a  40 inch in diameter tablecloth or which can be used as a tree skirt. It was back ordered and I recently tried to contact the supplier to see how things were shaping up – their site is disconnected and I fear they are toes up! That triggered a flurry of searching and I finally found a supplier who has, it appears, processed my order – so I am expecting two only of these lovely kits – preprinted quilt top, backing and binding to whch I can add batting and thread – and even a needle too! Contact me quickly – these two won’t last!

PRICE: CHRISTMAS WHOLECLOTH KIT _ YOUR CHOICE OF ANTIQUE WHITE OR NATURAL 40inches complete w backing and bimding $150USD + $25USD shipping = $175USD – specoify if you want thread batting and needle to get going right away on this beauty!

PRICE “Snowflower” by Paragon in double/queen size complete with original Peri Lusta floss kit   $290USD + $35USD shipping w insurance and tracking = $325USD

And BELOW: I finally found another Bucilla Imari – this is a classic that has become very hard to find and is just the thing if you have a bedroom that is in a traditional style – can’t you see it offset by one or two pieces of lovely Imari export Japanese or English porcelain? Traditional and very lovely colours are listed for you to supply. No floss kit.

Wholecloth quilt kits: Up to the moment listing of wholecloth quilt kits

A group of quilters has contacted me for a complete list of my current inventory as they are hoping their next project will be a wholecloth quilt. What a fabulous idea for a small group and what a way to improve your handquilting skills with all the support a group can give.  In addition, I already have a handy tutorial here: http://www.novascotiaquilts.com/2013/02/making-your-first-wholecloth-quilt.html and I discuss washing your finished pre-stencilled quilt so as to remove the markings here:http://www.novascotiaquilts.com/2013/01/removing-the-stamped-markings-from-quilts-made-from-kits.html In addition I offre ongoing personalised mentoring for quilters who purchase any of my stock. There really is a sisterhood among quilters!!

So, below, if you and your friends are thinking of a similar project soon, you’ll find something for every skill level – with this variety you’ll be able to choose enough of a challenge, but not too much. I’m happy to put together a group order, and can offer 10% off each individual’s order; and a larger shipment makes sense too in terms of there being less cost overall than if each parcel went out one by one. Shipping, as always, will include insurance and tracking.

VINTAGE FINISHED QUILTS FROM KITS

 

These days I have some serious house repair and renovation going on, and a good part of many of my days have been spent in shifting my inventory from place to place in the house as the construction zone moves into areas I’ve used for storage.

I have gradually built up a collection of lovely finished quilts, vintage and antique, made from kits and pieced in the typical prints and solids of the late 19th century and earlier half of the 20th century.

These quilts were selected in particular as being in pristine condition – stitching is strong, “beauty spots” are very limited and bindings are intact. In many cases, I suspect these quilts were never used for anything more rigourous that display – certainly many have never been laundered. All are sweet smelling and unfaded.

It has become clear to me that I need to simplify and downsize, so I am offering these treasures at very attractive pricing and until May 31  shipping to any place in North America is free with tracking and insurance included. Quilts usually cost around $50, and sometimes more to ship, so I hope you will take advantage of this great offer. Payment can be made by requesting a Paypal invoice, or by mailing to me your personal cheque in USD or an International Postal Money Order also in USD. Contact me: janet@novascotiaquilts.com to arrange purchase.

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

Above is a photo of the front cover on the packaging of Progress #1553, Majestic. I sold this in kit form some time ago and haven’t been able to source it again, but I do have this as a finished quilt among my collection. Sized at 79×97 which was the standard size of the Progress kits, this quilt has been made by a very skilled hand and is in perfect condition. Dates to late 1950’s, early 1960’s.

The pattern is very similar to another Progress kit #1492 Tree of Life. Both are patterned on the palampores or bed spread sized hand block printed cottons imported by the Dutch East India and the British East India Companies in the early 17th century – these ‘indiennes’ fabric in very fine cotton took Europe by storm and in fact are still being made today by the den Haan and Wagenmaker firm in Holland. Check out their website for some luscious fabrics!  http://www.dutchquilts.net/EN_index_.html

PRICE: MAJESTIC  completed vintage quilt 79×97  $500USD  + ship free until May 31/13

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

Above is the cover photo of Bucilla’s kit “Acorn Harvest”, done in cross stitch embroidery and then handquilted – design is based on a 19th century applique quilt motif and I have this lovely quilt both in kit form and in a finished quilt. Contact me: janet@novascotiaquilts.com

The finished quilt – in a double/queen size is in immaculate condition, and is priced at  $400USD and will ship free with tracking and insurance until May 31/13

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

The finished quilt featured above is a winner! Again, in pristine unused condition; and again I have the kit as well as the finished quilt. The applique on this quilt is absolutely flawless – a real ‘girlie’ quilt without being over the top - maybe just in time for a graduating daughter or granddaughter?

PRICE: Bucilla The Living Rose in double/queen $450USD + shipping is free until May 31/13

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

Above is a very early quilt made from a kit put out by Home Needlecraft Company. I recently featured this quilt when discussing the markings on the old kit and how to minimise what stamping tends to remain.

http://www.novascotiaquilts.com/2013/01/removing-the-stamped-markings-from-quilts-made-from-kits.html

 

PRICE: SCATTERED MORNING GLORIES  $575USD + free shipping until May 31/13

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

This one is a rare one!! I sold the only kit I ever had of this quilt many years ago and have not seen it since. I was lucky enough to find this finished one in the secondary market a couple of years and happy to tell you it has no issues – clean, unfaded and with skilled and sturdy stitching, this is Progress #1345, Bowknot measuring 79×97 – and ready to place on your bed. The quilt dates to the late 1940’s or early 1950’s and will make a unique statement in any collection.

PRICE: Bowknot  – Progress #1345  $575USD + free shipping until May 31/13

ABOVE: A closeup of Bowknot – enjoy!!

Contact me: janet@novascotiaquilts.com to purchase

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

 The quilt shown above is quite likely not made from a kit – I think I may have seen this pattern in a quilt magazine from the early 1980’s – whatever its origins it is lovely – a serene but colourful quilt executed with skill by a bold and confident needlewoman.  This Basket of Flowers sized at 60×60 would look lovely in a bright sunny bedroom with any kind of furniture, but can you see it with white wicker?

wow!! - a real winner!

PRICE: BASKET OF FLOWERS 60×60  $400USD + free shipping until May 31/13

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

The next two quilts I’ll show you today were, of course, not made from kits. They are true pieces of our quilting past in North America and would hold their own in any quilt lover’s collection. This first one dates from the late 19th century and is made from indigo prints and a beautiful double pink print, offset by white and heavily quilted. It has clearly been used and loved, but well cared for. Fabric is still strong and stitching is intact, while the batting has not bunched up – the only sign of its age is a gentle fraying of the binding, but that binding is still intact and currently needs no attention.

PRICE: Indigo and doouble pink Geese in a Pond quilt 72×90  $575USD + shipping free until May 31/13

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

Above is a Star of Bethlehem or Texas Star quilt with the unusual but totally charming addition of a strong 1930’s candy pink background which sets off and enhances the strong solid 1930’s colours making up the central pieced star.  I have checked this piece by piece and closed up a few seams where stitching had come undone, so it should be ready for display in your home. And what a display it will make! At 78×78, a very versatile size it can go on a double bed, or a twin and would make a strong statement hanging over the back of a sofa or over a door. Backing is the same wonderful pink!

PRICE: STAR OF BETHLEHEM  78×78  $450 + free shipping until May 31/13

Don’t delay! this won’t last – email me: janet@novascotiaquilts.com to secure your purchase

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

The last quilt I’ll show you today is one I made and is left over from last year’s invcentory. A one of a kind original design by me, it is made from repro 19th century fabrics in indogoes on white muslin and is enhanced by a shot of turkey red. At about 50×50, this would make a great table cloth at a 4th of July celebration, or if you’d rather not check its washability – which is just fine, you can hang it on the wall or over the back of the sofa. The patriotism is subtle enough, too, that this quilt will hold its own any day of the year.

PRICE: JANET’S INDIGO BASKETS – hand appliqued, hand pieced and hand quilted from fine 100% cotton through and through  $350USD + free shipping until May 31/13

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

In addition to all these lovely quilts, I have a fine collection of bedlinens, vintage of course and many hand embelllished – all of which are made in the USA or France of either 100% cotton or linen/hemp – if you’d like to dress your whole bed vintage – contact me janet@novascotiaquilts.com and we can talk.
