    I have never ordered a quilt kit before. Other than all the material needed, is there also a pattern included? Just ordered one from KQ on sale. Thanks. Marge

    Read the details. Most of the time there is. I think they call it Quilt plus.

    Yes, usually there's a pattern included or they'll say you need to purchase the pattern or buy the magazine featuring the pattern, etc.
    Kits are fun, but sometimes they short you on fabric.

    Most places include patterns, but more quilting stores are doing the kits with pattern separate watch can get really pricey and don't wait too long I have been shorted fabric a couple of times.

    Pattern is usually included and the material for the top, not the backing. Be careful cutting. Some kits leave no room for errors, others are very generous.
    Can't wait to see what you do - now that you have a new camera......................

    Read the description carefully, they may or may not contain the pattern. Like what was previously stated, measure 3 or 4 times before you cut, some kits are pretty stingy on the fabric :D:D:D

    I have only bought kits from Connecting Threads and always have the pattern with them. They are very generous with the fabric included.
