    I have bought many quilt kits for the reasons you have. I've never been dissappointed, most kits have plenty of fabric and on many occasions have made a 2nd much smaller quilt from the leftovers! Try www.hancocks-paducah.com their kits are great.

    pretty much all quilt shops carry/offer kits- check your local quilt shop- then check out Connecting threads, Keepsake Quilting, QuiltKitsOnLine, Blue Bamboo, Jenny Beyer, Elenor Burns-Quilt in a Day, Judy Martin, the Cotton Patch in East Tawas Michigan-(hundreds of kits), PineNeedles, Homestead Hearth, Quilt and Needle, ---gosh, their are literally hundreds and hundreds of shops that offer kits- you may want to check out the list of shops on the 'fabshophop' I think this month their are 140 shops listed- check out the ones that catch your eye & see what appeals to you- also many, many pattern/books authors, designers also have shops and also offer their quilts in kit form- some even have their own fabric lines to go with their patterns/designs

    I agree!! I joined a Kansas Troubles BOM from them over a year ago. Purchased 2 kits wanting a King size quilt. To my surprise, the fabric in one kit was enough to make double the blocks! I am using all the extra fabric to make another (different) quilt!! BTW they are currently putting together another Kansas Troubles BOM. Am I tempted!!
    Local LQS tries to cut corners for the $ and I've messed up with them. Someone like that only gets one chance with me!

    CT has great kits and you won't find any anywhere else that are as reasonable.

    I have ordered from Connecting Threads and the Fat Quarter Club (when on sale) both are great. Remember collections of fabrics all coordinate and are an excellent way to learn about colour and values when making quilts - by ordering a 1/2 yard of ten different fabrics in a collection and 2 yards each of what colours in the collection you can make a nice trip around the world with great borders and truly learn about fabrics.

    Stitchin' Heaven in Mineola, TX has nice kits, and they have a good block of the month program, too. Pinwheels and Posies in Dickinson, TX also has some nice kits. I ordered a kit from Connecting Threads once and was disappointed in the fabric. The hand was not comfortable and the colors were not what was pictured, so I haven't gone back there.

    I don't usually buy kits, but I won the Feb. Shop Hop, and ended up buying a kit from ShabbyFabric.com. It had enough extra fabric that I made a mini quilt just like the original. I would definitely buy from them again.

    Many local quilt shops sell kits. If you can go there you can check out the fabric

    I have purchased several kets from them & have been very happy with the fabrics & patterns. My only suggestion is to open the kits right away & make sure all the fabric was there & in the sizes stated in the pattern. I received one kit that was missing fabric & did not check it. It was short 2 fat quarters of the fabric when I got around to it & that was about 6 months after the purchase. I contacted them & unfortunately they did not have any yardage in the missing pieces, but they did have some other of the fabrics in the same line so that they were able to send me 2 fata quarters. And, since it was the same line no one but me knew they were not the same design as called for. Their customer service is great.
