Vintage Kit Quilts and Kit Tops

This gallery will include vintage/antique kit quilts and kit quilt tops that were made from pre-packaged kits sold years ago. The kits were sold by various companies including Progress, Lee Ward, Hershners, Bucilla, Home Needlecraft Creations and many more. These packaged kits often came with pre-stamped or pre-cut fabric and included the pieces to be appliqued and/or embroidery thread and binding fabric. The applique design was generally stamped on the wholecloth background. Quilting lines were usually stamped on ground fabric too. If applique was to be done, there were corresponding numbers stamped on the pieces that were supplied and the top also had numbers so one could cut out the fabric and attach it to the top of the ground fabric matching up the numbers. The applique work was done either by hand or sewing machine. There were several kinds of kit quilts that include applique,embroidery and pieced. Some of the pieced patterns that were offered as kits include Double Wedding Ring quilt, Flower Garden quilt, Lone Star quilt, Broken Star quilt and others. These kits would have had precut prints and solids. Some of the early designers of kit quilts were Ruby McKim, Anne Orr, Marie Webster, H. VerMehren and others.

Postage Stamp 'Nosegay'/'Computer' Quilt- Mint-

Offering this wonderful quilt, Nosegay, that has a similar look to the Anne Orr patterns. Note the surrounding staggered border of the small blue postage stamp squares. Anne Orr was known for her style of quilts that often were called "Computer Quilts", due to the fact that they were small postage stamp sized blocks put together with solid colored fabrics and had a rather Deco like computer generated pattern. Sometimes they looked like flowers or baskets, such as this and are more visual when standing a few feet from the quilt and seeing it hung or displayed on a bed.  The condition of the quilt is mint and unused. The quilting is small grids and patterns. Hand quilted at a nice 8-9 spi. The separate narrow blue binding is finely stitched on by hand. An excellent quilt to add to a collection, especially if looking for designers quilt patterns of the early 1900's. 

  This information  was forwarded to my by a an email and is much appreciated as to the background on this pattern. "  Merikay Waldvogal books - Soft Covers for Hard Times.  Merikay indicated (page 36) the name of this pattern is Nosegay, however, she included it in her book as an example of how other companies produced patterns SIMILAR to Anne Orr's popular cross-stitch style quilts.  Here is her quote: "This quilt is included to show how other companies proof Flowers.   I did remember seeing this in one of Merikay Waldvogal books - Soft Covers for Hard Times.  Merikay indicated (page 36) the name of this pattern is Nosegay, however, she included it in her book as an example of how other companies produced patterns SIMILAR to Anne Orr's popular cross-stitch style quilts."   Aslo noted in the book on page 36 is that this pattern appeared in Country Gentleman(Feburary 1940) in the 1940's.
