    Favorite quilt kits

    We are preparing for the Paducah Quilt show and will be having different quilt kits for sale. What patterns/colors would you like to see available?

    Which ever you decide be sure to be generous with the fabric. Mistakes happen! Also keep a supply of the same fabric in the shop in case someone needs/wants more. This seems to be the biggest complaint with kits that there is never enough fabric.

    Batiks would pull me in. Also a pattern where trying to buy the fabric on my own would be too cumbersome or expensive like for appliqué where tons of different pieces are needed.

    I agree I wanted to buy more fabric from a kit and was disappointed when they didn't have any

    Any combination of black, white, and red seems to be popular- my LQS can't seem to keep them in stock anyway. Consider 5 - yard bundles with patterns for 5-yard quilts. I love having the fabric chosen for me. My LQS has a section with just those bundles - the red/white/black and any batik collection seem to be big sellers. Good luck!

    Greys and yellows also seem to be big - anything with grey.
    So many quilts, so little time.

    I personally would love a lone star quilt kit in deep jewel tones

    I like small quilts and wall hangings. I'm open to patterns and colors.
