New Kits for Wolf Song and Midnight Cowboy

We added a couple of great new kits to our lineup today.  The first is a really

Framed Cowboys Quilt

Framed Cowboys Quilt

unique quilt that uses a pattern by our friend Lynn Kraus of Fiber Flies, called “Framed.”  Lynn has put this together with Maywood Studios new “Midnight Cowboy” fabrics, also featured in the printed pattern.

Midnight Cowboy is explained in an earlier post, but this quilt really shows off the cowboy life pictures and also makes good use of several contrasting coordinates from Maywood’s Midnight Cowboy and Cowboys & Indians fabric lines.  All in all this is a wonderful quilt and would be perfect for anyone who likes cowboy culture.

We’re offering the quilt kit, which we’re calling “Framed Cowboys” in the Twin size. At 64 x 76 inches it’s perfect for a bunk or single bed.  The pattern has directions for four different bed sized quilts,  so if you would like to make a bigger one, call or email us for a quote on one of the larger sizes.

Wolf Song Travel Quilt

The next new kit today is a small travel size lap quilt or small-room wall hanging done with the popular Wolf Song fabrics from Exclusively Quilters.  This 38″ x 39″ quilt is featured on EQ’s website and is really easy to make, essentially just a center panel and some borders.  So it’s suitable for any level of quilter.  This kit, or the finished quilt from it would also make an excellent gift.  Do you have any friends named Wolf?  :)

As usual, both kits come with all fabrics needed to make the top and bindings, the pattern and our color fabric cross-reference, and our exclusive offer to pre-cut your binding strips for you for free.

New Wolf Song Kit(s)

We finally got some re-stock on Exclusively Quilters’ Wolf Song fabrics, and they’re up on our website in two different modes of availability. Our special collection features a panel, a yard each of the two large-repeat feature fabrics, and a half-yard of the other fabrics.   Sorry, no fabrics are available for individual sales at this time.

The other, more exciting mode is Cindy’s new wall-hanging/lap quilt. She just finished this literally yesterday, and it’s gorgeous!   It’s a totally new design and has some very unique features.   She’s calling this “Jordan’s Wolf Song” because when it’s finished it’s going to our son Jordan, a long-time fan of all things wolf.

Cindy’s new exclusive QKO design features the striking wolf-head center panel, four corner vignettes, and some really nifty diamond effects.

We’re offering this quilt in two sizes;  the basic wall-hanging is approximately

Wolf Song quilt added borders

Wolf Song Quilt with Added Borders

51 x 52 inches.  If you want a larger, 66×67 inch large lap quilt, you can add the optional inner and outer borders. The 6 inch border uses the fantastic “woodlands scene fabric”  and Cindy’s instructions show you how to cut it so the tree trunks and tops line up around the quilt to give a pleasing effect. Because of the repeats on the fabric, a lot is required for these borders.

The kit is suitable for advanced beginning quilters and up, and will make a beautiful statement for your home, or a wonderful gift. As usual, our kit contains all fabric needed for the top and bindings, our fabric xref and Cindy’s exclusive pattern. We’re also offering our free pre-cut binding strips option on this kit.

This is a unique kit, available only here at QKO.  Enjoy!  Click Here to go to the kit product listing, as long as they last.
