Often one of the most time-consuming parts of making a quilt is choosing the right fabrics. They to find fabrics which go together well, the right blend of light and dark, prints and solids which co-ordinate etc. If you’d rather just get on with the sewing side of things then quilt kits are the way to go. They tend to include the pattern and all the fabrics you need to make the quilt (you add your own wadding, and often backing fabric too). They are normally based around a particular fabric collections so you know the fabrics will all go together well.
Below we’ll tell you about some of the online stores where you can buy quilt kits, and the range of kits they have. Many also have kits for smaller quilted projects which is a great place to start if you aren’t sure about doing a whole quilt from a kit.
