    I love quilt kits. I like that I can see the finished project and can get to the good part of cutting and sewing. They are pricey, but the fabrics are always great quality. I buy most of my kits at the LQS, but I have purchased some on ebay. I have some favorite sellers that I use.

    I have several kits from Connecting Threads. I love their fabrics and their kits are great too.

    I have bought kits and panels at Keepsake Quilting and from LQS. I like to get the pattern and fabric together, then I don't have to worry about colors or not finding fabric.

    I just started on a quilt kit that my hubby got for me. I love it so far. He found it on ebay and it's wonderful fabric. I also love it because it's a pretty difficult block that i never would have tried. Because it was already cut, it made it easier!

    love kits....i have got some from Etsy..some Connecting Threads or LQS.

    Kits can be very convenient but many stores don't supply the same fabric that is shown in the picture, so be careful and check up front.

    Connecting Threads is great because what you see is what you get.

    I use kits very often. Have bought a couple from Keepsake Quilting, but found one of those kits at almost half the price I'd paid at my LQS (same pattern & fabric). Now I check with LQS first ;)

    I started my "quilting life" with a couple of kits my husband bought...not really in my style, but he got them at a bargain price and they were great practice. A lot of people get a lot of pleasure from, and, turn out gorgeous quilts using kits. I haven't bought any personally...but I'm sure someone will point you in the most cost effective direction.

    I purchase kits occasionally usually at quilt shows or visiting LQS when traveling. Although I enjoy picking our my own fabrics, it's fun to have all that done for too.

    Once in awhile I buy them and I have fun. I don't have to think as much lol
    I have enjoyed Connecting Threads kits but I always buy them on clearance, well almost always! :D

    I am addicted to quilt kits. I find it a good learning experience, my next one I want to do is the Moonglow by Jinny Beyer. I have designed a few quilts for my boys and myself, but I just love the kits.
