There are even some more whimsical designs like the Santa Gnome and Snow Garden.

I have had the chance to see the kits as they come in to Merry Stockings, and I get to see many of the pictures of the completed kits that our customers send to us. Since this is my first try at constructing a felt stocking kit, I think I will pick a design with fewer details.

Bucilla has at least 3 poppy design applique quilts during its kit history, and the one Cinda asks about 1117, is surely one of the earlier ones if the Bucilla kit numbering system is any indication. How long did a particular pattern remain available? At one time I thought there might have been a 'version' of kit quilts going around in Northumberland because there is a small number of quilts with similar bold designs in the same fabrics, (nothing like the elegant US kits) but that seems to have been just a small cluster and not a commercial enterprise.
