    Whole Cloth Quilt from Keepske Quilting

    Has anyone bought a whole cloth quilt kit from Keepsake Quilting? My nephew is getting married next year and the Welsh Beauty quilt looks like a perfect wedding gift. I was wondering about the quality of the fabric, the cost seems quite low for the marked top and backing- $89. I have never hand quilted a large project like that, but I do have enough time if I get moving soon. Any advice and feedback is most welcome. Thanks friends.

    I have never bought such a kit, but as far as I know the "Welsh Beauty" design is made by Holice T. He is a member here on the board and I am sure he can answer your questions. Maybe you contact him by a personal message?
    Just a thought...

    I bought the top only, quite some time ago - have not quilted it yet. I'll feel the fabric tonight and let you know the quality. I don't remember it being poor though.

    And had no idea the design was by "our" Hollis!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I can not speak about the whole clothe quilt itself, but I can say I have never purchased anything from Keepsake that was'nt first rate quality.

    Yes, that is the quilt I designed for Benartex. The quality of the fabric generaly was a good quality. I havn't heard of any problems the past few years. It should be printed so you have sufficient extra on the edges for your binding to match the top,

    I apologize ... I know I have it, somewhere ... I can't find it!!

    My sewing room is a wreck right now. Between having house guests and re-decorating the family room, I have a lot of extra 'stuff' packed into every other available space in the house and I can't get to some areas of my sewing room.
