    Online shop help for kits

    I tend to use online shops as I'm not thrilled with the prices or selection in this area. I have to make a baby quilt. The shower is in 2 months....well, I think it's closer to 6 weeks. I don't have the time to take a fabric trip at the moment. I have never used a kit before, but I've heard good things about them. Looking for a safari animal kit. What sites do you guys use for kits? Also, what are the average prices for baby kits?

    Thank you all so much!

    Don't know if they have any "safari kits", but check Connecting Threads and/or Keepsake Quilting. They may have something you can use.

    Looked at a couple sites that I did a quick search for "safari quilt kits". This one is on sale and would be quick to do if you FMQ. I did a panel that had a print of animals and outlined the animals in black thread, maybe outlined the eyes, some other details depending on time. Did not take as much time as piecing.

    Good luck!

    I've never gotten anything from this shop (I keep meaning to order something & then I get buys & forge... LOL!) but I know several people who have & they swear by this... good prices, large selectin & especially for little people. I'm not affiliated with this... just trying to help. Keep us posted.

    I bookmarked this search today. I was perusing safari animals at this exact site. I'm not sure the color scheme is right. I am going to ask the boss if the color scheme on the card is the same as the border they got for the bedroom. If it is, then I have the exact colors already, I just have to find their fabric partners!


    You guys rock. I'm going to answer your responses individually cause it's easier to keep track of them that way. Keepsake quilting...I think, had one on sale. I emailed it to myself. It's the closest thing I've found so far. I'll post the link when I go through my emails.

    This one is in 2nd place so far. I don't FMQ and prefer the piecing part of it. But...since it's a baby quilt I can't put all the work into hand quilting I normally would. Probably echo or in the ditch quilting by machine for a baby quilt. I forgot all about how to quilt it, so thank you for the reminder!

    Probably won't work for this project, but I was completely drooling all over the not baby size kits. Bookmarked that site for further perusal when I'm not concentrating on one project.

    Yes, they have a lot of gorgeous kits. Nothing for this project, but I love buying their fabric. Nice to go back to that shop to look around. Lots to drool over. Managed to buy some things I didn't realize I needed and none of them are good for this quilt. All this probes is that I am easily enabled....heee hee

    No animal prints, however, they have a very reasonably priced DWR kit that is seriously tempting for hubby's next anniversary gift. I've wanted to make one forever, but I can't find reasonable templates and I'm kinda scared to do a pattern that intense that is mostly template cut. Die cuts would be perfect and well worth the money.

    While I'm not findiing a lot for the baby boy in question, it's been great to get the create juices flowing again. Been in a bit of a funk this winter.
