I got my old job back last week. And on top of that I just got a $260.00 Visa gift card for team of the year. Now quilt kit or fabric? Help me make up my mind please.

Now, being a frugal person, I tend to think you would get much more for your dollars if you bought yardage Surely the cost of a kit includes all the precutting of fabric etc. BUT if you are wanting a treat and want all the cutting done for you then go ahead and buy a kit :D

Not much use was I???????? :lol: :lol:

I would buy fabric. More for you money and if you shop around, you can probably get enough fabric for 2 quilts for the same price as most kits.

I do have to say that connecting threads doesn't overcharge for their kits, though most places charge way to much.

WooHoo!!!!! You're employed again! What a great feeling!

How about some batting and thread- stuff you never can have enough of? And a splurge of some fabric. I say- watch out connecting threads- here she comes!

(Oh, Joann's online- get a bolt of batting- I got mine for like $165.00 before Christmas.) I figure I will get 20 quilts out of it. About 1 years worth. :)

Have fun spending it!!!!!

Congratulations on getting your old job back. Personally, I'd spend it on fabric or quilt related stuff I needed or use like blades versus a kit. I like to pick my own fabrics to go with whatever pattern I pick. But it's not my decision.

I would also go for the fabric. You might be able to get something on sale and get more bang for the buck! I love a bargain!
