Ingalls 1886 Catalog of Embroidery Stamping Patterns

I have a CD of the Ingalls 1886 Catalog of Embroidery Stamping Patterns.  This was scanned and shared by John Governale, my CD says 2007.  It is now available as a free download.  A great reference library of designs.

Bucilla Applique Quilt Kit

Bucilla Quilt
"Puff-Quilted Wreath"
Design No. 1731

c. 1940

A rare find, pristine quilt kit in unused condition. This even has the matching embroidery floss. I have never seen this as a finished quilt. Pattern instructions say, the patches are to be puff-quilted with padding, giving an unusual embossed or raised effect.
