    I like Keepsake Quilting, but they are expensive.

    I have purchased from Connecting Threads and have been pleased with them.

    Quilt Kits Online, without a doubt. The owners are members here (QKO) and always bring their unique perspective to any discussion. Great customer service. http://www.quilt-kits-online.com/

    Without a doubt, Homestead Hearth. Each piece of material is labeled clearly. My precuts included in some of the little kits were well cut and organized with labels on each stack. Almost impossible to mix them up. Lots of extra fabric. In fact, I am frugal with cuts and made another 25 X 36 quilt with tiny log cabins and houses from the extras of one kit.

    I am thinking connecting threads was the best kits I have bought too. They include enough fabric with some left over for some other little project. (or re-cuts if you goof up in a small way)

    I just came across this store: http://www.the-sampler.com/ they have a few on a really good sale (depends on what you are looking for). another place that has a lot is http://www.mybluebamboo.com/ they also run some good sales and if you get on their mailing list, then you can get their emails for current sales.

    I have bought from ericas.com, keepsakequilting.com, nancy's notions, connecting threads, and another online quilt shop but can't remember the name. Also quilt shows are a great place to purchase kits and your LQS

    Me, too...Connecting Threads gives plenty of fabric in their kits and they are reasonably priced.

    You can't go wrong with the Fat Quarter Shop. (fatquartershop.com) They have quality fabric and they give you so much extra that you can make, literally, additional quilts from the leftover fabric. I've enjoyed their Mystery BOMs. Talk about generous with fabric; I can't believe it. Their customer service is second to none. If you are looking for precuts then The Green Fairy is the place to go (greenfairyquilts.com). Judy is amazing; wait til you see her quilting on her blog.

    I have been drooling over a quilt kit from Homestead Hearth. After reading your reviews of them, I am definitely ordering! Thanks!

    I love Fat Quarter Shop also. They package your kit so nicely and you do have lots extra. Every time!!

    I agree with Connecting Threads, although I have only sewed a quilt kit once. But CT gave plenty of fabric--I didn't have to scimp. (My big fear!) In fact, I think I even have some left over.
