    I've just finished piecing John Flynn's blue and white Drunkard's Path, and done his multi-colour batik Storm at Sea. Both kits were perfectly cut, and a pleasure to put together. I would never have tried either if I'd had to cut them out myself. I can warmly recommend them!

    I have used numerous kits from Connecting THreads and Fons and Porter. All have had ample and beautiful fabrics. Have been very happy with what I have gotten.

    I've used Fatquartershop.com as well for kits. I bought a quilt kit from them about 5 years ago and I am still making quilts with the extra fabric. Very generous.

    haha...when I was walking around the Houston quilt show with my bf's mom, I'd see a pattern I like and then often, "and it comes in a kit!!" because I struggle with picking fabrics. I'm not bad at it, but I do like buying something pre-packaged. Maybe I'm just lazy. LOL

    Thank you for all the suggestions! Can not wait until tonight when i will have more time to browse all the sites. I'm glad to hear that they have generous cuts of fabric because that was one of my concerns.

    I agree... Choosing your own fabric to fit a pattern makes it truly your own creation. And I love that!!! But I thought it might be somehow relaxing once in while, to not have to think or worry about colors and placement of different fabrics.... Which I know i definitely fuss way too much over. I'm a fairly new quilter and maybe with time, ill be able to see the whole picture easier.

    I have bought many quilt kits for the reasons you have. I've never been dissappointed, most kits have plenty of fabric and on many occasions have made a 2nd much smaller quilt from the leftovers! Try www.hancocks-paducah.com their kits are great.

    pretty much all quilt shops carry/offer kits- check your local quilt shop- then check out Connecting threads, Keepsake Quilting, QuiltKitsOnLine, Blue Bamboo, Jenny Beyer, Elenor Burns-Quilt in a Day, Judy Martin, the Cotton Patch in East Tawas Michigan-(hundreds of kits), PineNeedles, Homestead Hearth, Quilt and Needle, ---gosh, their are literally hundreds and hundreds of shops that offer kits- you may want to check out the list of shops on the 'fabshophop' I think this month their are 140 shops listed- check out the ones that catch your eye & see what appeals to you- also many, many pattern/books authors, designers also have shops and also offer their quilts in kit form- some even have their own fabric lines to go with their patterns/designs

    I agree!! I joined a Kansas Troubles BOM from them over a year ago. Purchased 2 kits wanting a King size quilt. To my surprise, the fabric in one kit was enough to make double the blocks! I am using all the extra fabric to make another (different) quilt!! BTW they are currently putting together another Kansas Troubles BOM. Am I tempted!!
    Local LQS tries to cut corners for the $ and I've messed up with them. Someone like that only gets one chance with me!

    CT has great kits and you won't find any anywhere else that are as reasonable.

    I have ordered from Connecting Threads and the Fat Quarter Club (when on sale) both are great. Remember collections of fabrics all coordinate and are an excellent way to learn about colour and values when making quilts - by ordering a 1/2 yard of ten different fabrics in a collection and 2 yards each of what colours in the collection you can make a nice trip around the world with great borders and truly learn about fabrics.
    A bed without a quilt is like the night sky without stars.
