I’ve did a little online shopping the other day and I got into a discussion about buying discounted kits online. When we first moved back to FL four years ago my stash went to our place in GA and since I’d bought a few kits for Mom, I thought it would be nice to have some kits here so I could just pick them up and sew.
Here’s one of the quilts Mom made from a kit I got for her.
Occasionally I’ll make the pattern in the kit but most often I use the fabric for a quilt I draft myself. This was one of the Connecting Threads kits I bought …
and this is the quilt I made from it … I did pull that cream fabric from stash to go with the fabrics in the kit.
Here’s another one where I took the fabric from a discounted kit and did my own thing.
And here’s one where I pieced the intended pattern. It’s kind of plain looking now but I think it will look great once it’s quilted.
So I’m not necessarily trying to encourage you to go out and start buying quilt kits but when I find something that appeals to me, whether it’s just the fabric or the quilt itself, AND I can buy it a good discount, I’m snapping them up!
