Wholecloth quilt kits: Up to the moment listing of wholecloth quilt kits

A group of quilters has contacted me for a complete list of my current inventory as they are hoping their next project will be a wholecloth quilt. What a fabulous idea for a small group and what a way to improve your handquilting skills with all the support a group can give.  In addition, I already have a handy tutorial here: http://www.novascotiaquilts.com/2013/02/making-your-first-wholecloth-quilt.html and I discuss washing your finished pre-stencilled quilt so as to remove the markings here:http://www.novascotiaquilts.com/2013/01/removing-the-stamped-markings-from-quilts-made-from-kits.html In addition I offre ongoing personalised mentoring for quilters who purchase any of my stock. There really is a sisterhood among quilters!!

So, below, if you and your friends are thinking of a similar project soon, you’ll find something for every skill level – with this variety you’ll be able to choose enough of a challenge, but not too much. I’m happy to put together a group order, and can offer 10% off each individual’s order; and a larger shipment makes sense too in terms of there being less cost overall than if each parcel went out one by one. Shipping, as always, will include insurance and tracking.



There are two design families from which to choose – above is Welsh Beauty and below is Garden Bouquet – both by Benartex, these kits come complete with binding and backing and are in antique white – a lovely creamy colour! You can purchase one or the pair of these lovely projects which are sized at 18 inches. A lovely way to introduce yourself to handquilting a wholecloth and you have a nice finished item very quickly. When ordering specify which pair or which single you wish.

PRICES:  ONE PILLOW TOP with binding and backing 18inches in white: $37.50USD

PAIR TOPS  w binding and backing 18inches in white: $75USD shipping extra let me quote



Sorry – just a teaser here – I’m hoping to have several of these lovely items – 45inches in diameter – in stock soon in both white and natural – contact me janet@novascotiaquilts.com if you wish me to put a hold on one for you…..

A very traditional wholecloth, design based on a museum collection 19th century quilt – this is National Star by Penn Prints – which is another trade name of Doublestencil/Spartex. This bewautiful kit is in natural and sized at 40×40.  SOLD

Above is an all time favourite – my friend June, who has bought two other kits from me was in last night and was very tempted – as I am but I keep reminding myself I have too much on my plate already! This one is the small size shown hanging on the wall above the bed.; You have a choice here – the nice vintasge prints to do the applique are in the package, which is factory sealed. You can also choose a differnt colour scheme using your own fabrics or you can choose to go for a more suvtle look and dispense with the applique altogether.

And finally, this lovely and very traditional American Star in the American Heritage series by Doublestencil this wholecloth  kit is sized at 42×42 and is shown as the wall hanging in the above picture – comes in natural – wouldn’t this make a lovely tabletopper in a bedroom that has a wholecloth quilt on the bed? Such a versatile size, this would also make a lovely floor blanket for a crawling baby – either indoors or out – this quilt is so washable!

PRICE: Specify which kit is your choice – they are all priced at $150USD and are complete with binding and backing to match. Shipping to include insurance and tracking is extra – I will quote. Contact me janet@novascotiaquilts.com


It’s rare to find this mid size in a wholecloth kit – this is only the second one I’ve had and I waited a long time to find it! This is Grape Wreath, again from Doublestencil’s American Heritage Collection and such a bargain as it comes complete with the backing and binding – just add your batting, needle and thread and you are on your way: 53×70 it is available in natural.

PRICE: GRAPE WREATH: 53×70 with backing and binding in natural $200USD, shipping will be qyoted


QUEEN SIZED WHOLECLOTH KITS: Pictured below are the queen sized wholecloth kits I currently have in stck – some are available in both antique white or natural. These kits do not come with the backing but the matching binding is always supplied.

Above is Penn Prints Hagerstown Feather – this is a classic and very formal quilt in a design based on a heritage quilt from the nineteenth century – size given as ‘queen’ which I assume is roughly 90x 108. Available in natural.

American Star 90×113 in natural from Doublestencil’s American Heritage Collection – another classic!  SOLD

Above, a  Holice Turnbow design by Benartex – Garden Bouquet 90×108 available in natural

Holice Turnbow hjas been the tp ranking designer of wholecloth quilts, working for both Benartex and Doublestencil. This is his lovely deign Welsh Beauty in a choice of antique white or natural. sized at 86×106 – a double/queen

And finally, another Holice Turnbow put out by Benartex, Feathered Pineapple,  and measuring 90×108, this is in natural

PRICE: Each of the above queen sized kits comes complerte with binding – no backing is supplied: $250USD and I will quote you shipping, including insurance and tracking



For some time now, I have been offering the supplies to finish these lovely kits – I keep a few factory sealed backs, and the thread and batting that I have found to work well with these kits in stock – this is as a service to quilters who, like me, may live far from a well stocked quilt shop and wish to purcyhase everything they need at once. Contact me janet@novascotiaquilts.com should you wish to make use of this extra in customer service.

    I need your help!
    I have a old pre printed quilt, Summer Lotus, that I would like to quilt. Can I press the quilt top to remove wrinkles?? Or will this “set” the blue lines???
    What is your suggestions for removing the blue lines upon completion?

  • janet:

    Hi Victoria: Sorry to have been slow to reply: I’ve been away for a couple of days. I have checked trough my inventory and found that unfortunately I have no more floss kits to match the American Sampler quilt kit, but I do have another of the 90×108 quilt top kits, priced at $190USD. Please confirm that you want the two quilt top kits and the one floss kit that I have in stock. These will be sent, tracked and insured postage at no additional charge on receipt of your personal cheque for $445USD.

    I already have an additional top so without the floss, I think I will wait. I have sent a check for the One floss kit and one quilt top. If you don’t receive it in a few days please let me know. If you come across a floss kit, contact me and I will buy the quilt top and floss kit.
    Do you have a pink flower cross stitch quilt? Not sure of the name.

    Thank you so much. Look forward to receiving my order.

    Thank you soooo much. By the way, do you have the backing for the quilt tops? i sent an email regarding the other quilt tops and if you have enough backing kits, I will purchase them as well.

    Thank you again.


  • Victoria:


    Did you get my email about the the quilt backing for the quilt tops? If you run across the floss kit for the American Sampler, please let me know. also, do you have the Baltimore album cross stitch quilt kit?
    Just a question, do I have to sew the pieces together before cross stitching the pattern?

    Thank you so very much.

  • Victoria:

    The quilt kit I am looking for is a bi ills cross stitch. I am also looking for a cross stitch tree of life.
