They precut the kits, and give you a pattern to follow.
You will have a lot of fun with it :D:D:D

yes, they give you a pattern and the fabric (you have to buy the batting and thread)

They will send you a pattern with your kit. They also ask you to send in another one that you have made. (it's optional though)
I have yet to do mine.... :oops: :oops:
Going on my list now!! Right on top!

I didn't zigzag my seams.
When the top was completed, I did an all-over stippling with my Juki. I know it will stand up to alot of washing with all the quilting I did on it. ;)

They send a pattern with the fabric. I used warm n natural batting. I also made my own binding. They want you to wrap binding from the back to the front, and I do not like to do my binding this way. Still it's alot of fun making one, and it's a rewarding feeling.

I've done a couple of them. By the way, they prefer that the binding be done by machine, as they assume they will be used and washed frequently.

Have fun! It's a quick and fun quilt to make. :)
