Bucilla Applique Quilt Kit #8525 – Colonial Bouquet

I’ve been mulling over the content of my upcoming January 2013 Nova Scotia Quilts Newletter and thinking of topics, new acquisitions (I have a few hot ones I won’t reveal here on the site until newsletter members have had first dibs on them!), and what sort of special offer I can make that will help you in the long, cold and financially tight months after the Holiday season. 

I’m thinking at some point in those dreary winter months I should have a “Sale of the Year” with prices chopped  – wouldn’t that be nice?

Thing is, though that only newsletter subscribers are going to even know there is a special offer available.

Would you like to know? Last month I offered 15% off the first kit and 20% off the next ones of equal or lesser value. Pretty good – but I can do better – and I’m planning to! If you’d like to know what the code is for the special offer and which new acquisitions are up for grabs, just send me an email – – and put “Sign me up” in the message and I’ll add you to the list. No obligation and I will never reveal your name or email to anyone else. You can unsubscribe at any time, too. Give it a try – get in on the sale of the year.

And don’t forget that right now shipping for all of North America is free, and that applies to everyone.


Below is the cover shot of an earlier Bucilla applique quilt kit # 8525 – probably dating to the early 1960’s, in double/queen size.  

 As you can see, one has been started, and the remaining stamped fabrics to complete this one have been lost. I do, however have a second kit, also in the lovely shades of rose, and this one is complete and unopened.

 I’m offering several purchase options on this duo:

Prices: the pair as described $595USD + $40USD Postage.

                 the complete and unstarted kit $395USD + $30 shipping

                the started and missing coloured fabric to complete -  $225USD + $30USD shipping - you will need to find matches 

 Above and below are shots of the stamped applique fabric, plus the binding and stems.

Remember to sign up for the newsletter and keep informed of the big members only sale coming up soon –  to tell me you want to sign up!

Keep warm folks, and if you’re on the Atlantic seaboard watch out for the snowstorm coming. Now back to carrying wood in to the house!

Cheers – Janet!

Sign Up for My Monthly Newsletter

Today I am announcing the beginning of a monthly newsletter. Signing up enables you to get the march on acquiring new arrivals to my extensive inventory and is especially helpful if you are looking for those hard-to-find kits that don’t remain in stock very long.

Paragon Holly Hobbie child's quilt - 1972 - in stock - price $175USD + shipping

Both of the quilt kits depicted here fit that description – Holly Hobbie never stays on the shelf long – although I have been fortunate in finding this one recently to replace the one I sold a while ago!

I haven’t been as lucky in replacing the Franklin Mint’s lovely 13 Colonies kit – it was published years ago in a very limited edition and seldom appears on the secondary market. Maybe I’ll see another one soon – fingers crossed!  I did, after trying unsuccessfully to determine if Franklin Mint had templates and instruction manual and could/would supply requests for same,  decide to keep files in my records in order to help out people who have the kit without instructions – contact me if you need them  -


The first of the monthly newsletters will come out in a week or so and I have lots of new arrivals to list in it!  See you then!!  JANET
