    Ok, I admit it...I'm chicken to start trying to cut my fabric!! I'm just overwhelmed with what quilt pattern to start with and I even have books to browse. So...what would be a great relatively inexpensive quilt kit (full kit with fabric) to purchase to start with. I would prefer a wall hanging, baby quilt or something small like this.

    Suggestions, please??

    PS: If anyone has one like this to sell, please PM me!! I may have something to trade!

    Try Fabric Cafe. They have kits that are really easy to do, including pattern and fabric and they are small quilts. I've made several and they are great for beginners.

    Most kits require that you cut fabric. However, if, like me, the co-ordination of fabrics is overwhelming, by all means get a kit.

    Connecting Threads has some great kits for sale. That's a great way to get started.
