I like kits but i don't always buy them. I always like to see some options within kits. Like having an original kit like the pattern is done in, and then being able to see them in a completely different style fabrics, like a civil war version and a modern version. It always lends (me anyway) to a whole new line of ideas and inspiration.

Jenn,  Please send me your information!
Thank you to everyone who entered.

I am new to quilting, so I haven't spent the money to buy a kit. What if I'd mess it up? When I get a bit more experience I'm sure I'll be getting some:)

I love quilt kits! I am a beginning quilter so a kit takes much of the guess work out of it.

I think kits are good. They take the worry out of how much fabric you need, did I get enough, etc.

RenegadeQuilter said...

I love, love, love qult kits. I like that the fabric is already put together for me. I do buy them often. Its usually the fabric that catches my eye and that is the reason I buy not the pattern. Sometims the pattern but most ofter the fabric.

RenegadeQuilter said...

Just tweeted about this giveaway. Thanks for the great giveaway. I can't wait to use that ruler.

stefanie said...

I am not a fan of quilt kits. This is probably because I've never seen a kit that had fabrics that I was completely wild about. I much prefer to just buy the pattern and choose my own fabrics.

I like the idea of a kit but usually don't buy them. I have 2 sitting in my studio righ now. I like to add my own fabric to the kit to change it up a bit.

I think I failed to mention in my first entry that I liked WWF on facebook.

I have never used a kit, so not sure what I think. Some are gorgous and are tempting. But some seem to be expensive.

I like the idea of quilt kits, but I don't tend to buy them, I find it's cheaper to buy everything separately!

I used to cut kits at a local quilt shop. They can be a real time saver, and once in a while they are fun to use, but I prefer to choose and cut my own stuff. I find I stay more creative that way.

Quilt kits?? I have used block of the month quilt kits before and they are a timesaver and take a lot of the prepping/planning time down to next to nothing.

SingleGirlQuilts said...

I just "liked" Wondrous Woven Fabrics on Facebook (and visited their site and bought some Dr. Seuss fabric!).

justducky65 said...

I gave a shout out about your giveaway on Twitter and to check out the Wondrous Woven FB page too!

Happy Friday!

SingleGirlQuilts said...

On quilt kits, it depends. I have bought a few kits of Moda Bakeshop projects because I just loved the fabric the project used. I also like the option of choosing my own fabric, so sometimes the kit is not the best way to go for me. It is a fantastic way to buy what you need for a quilt at a (typically) discounted price, something I'm always up for!

Mariliz said...

I've purchased a few kits. I like the fact that it is a project you can just pick up start. The only downside is you do not get to shop for/choose the fabric, which is 1 of my favorite things to do!

Alassel said...

I have checked out the Wondrous Woven Fabric FB page and added it to my like list!

I've never gotten a quilt kit before, though I did pick up two tiny paper-piecing kits at the expo last week. I'd be interested to give it a shot for sure! :)

I've never bought a quilt kit. If I'm picked, this would be my first quilt kit. I usually reproduce the patterns I see from scratch, deciding on my own measurements and picking fabrics from my stash. That means there's a limit on the complexity of the quilts that I produce.

Jo said...

Looking forward to the giveaway I liked theri facebook page

Jo said...

I have never tried to use a kit for a quilt. I would really like to give it a try. I have always worried the directions would be to difficult. I haven't been sewing that long.

Tyra @ SilverLily Sews said...

I liked Wondrous Woven Fabric on facebook! They're great!

Tyra @ SilverLily Sews said...

I've never used a quilt kid before. But I think they are great. I'm just usually more likely to see a pattern I like and then enjoy the hunt to find the perfect fabric to go with it.

I like the idea of kits. A long time ago, i bought a kit... waited ages to put it together, then messed up cutting the borders. That really stunk. The border fabric wasn't around any more. I guess it was a learning opportunity.

Talin's Corner said...

I no longer purchase kits unless they are small, like for a pin cushion, ornament, etc. The main reason why I do not purchase quilt kits is because I have found that I just did not have of a fabric because I always wash my fabrics and they either shrink/distort and I am left looking for the fabric or adding other fabrics. I still buy quilt patterns, but not kits.

I love kits, I think they are fun. BUT I tend to buy kits for smaller projects due to lack of $$$$ for the bigger projects.

I don't buy kits but have nothing against them - I think they're a wonderful thing if you want to have the exact fabric shown on a quilt, or if you're a beginner.

Thanks for the opportunity - Hugs and Kisses is my fave of the new patterns.

I have only used a kit once and it was a near disaster. The border print was miscut and the fabric was out of stock everywhere. Luckily for me an employee at a local quilt store had some in her personal stash and she was sweet enough to give it to me.

I do like the quilt kits, cause you can get the exact fabric of what was used in the quilt and then I don't have to try and decide what fabric to use and then have to go and buy it. It is already put together!! Great patterns!

VeeBee said...

I'm a "liker" now! Thanks for the giveaway.

VeeBee said...

?Kits? Well, it's like a boxed cake mix: it makes it faster and easier to get a good result. Takes out the unknowns and unpredictable elements.. but, there is something inherently rewarding about creating your own recipe from your own head!
Honestly, I've never used a a quilt kit. So, I'd love to try one out!

VeeBee said...

not a blogger or tweeter, but I posted to FB.
Thanks

Pat V. said...

I am a sucker for kits. I generally fall in love with the look of a quilt and appreciate being able to reproduce it myself, WITHOUT having to hunt for all the fabrics!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I don't like to buy kits as I like to choose my own fabrics and tweek my own patterns. I do buy them for my mother as gifts as she has trouble choosing fabrics coordinating with a pattern and this helps her.

annmarie said...

I think choosing the fabrics is the best part of making a quilt. Kits are OK but I'd rather choose my own fabric. BUT I'd take one if I won one!!! lol

McGinty and Me said...

I love kits - I am always so delighted when I find out that a quilt, or softee or something like that is available to make up just the way it is on the blog page.
Thanks for the opportunity to win one of yours! Hope you have a lovely weekend

I'd be more tempted to buy for a small project..runners/hangings/purses.

VickiT said...

Great question about quilt kits. I have looked at them in the past but don't generally buy them. When buying fabrics to make a quilt I like to buy extra fabric for other things from the same fabrics. Also, I don't always make things exactly as shown and often use other fabrics.
On the other hand, a kit could be perfect if wanting to make the exact quilt seen especially if the fabrics used to make the quilt seen are my favaorite colors.

Deborah in Atlanta said...

I love quilt kits. I like knowing what the finished quilt will look like and know I don't have to second-guess the fabrics I choose on my own. I'd prefer all of the quilt top to be in the quilt kit, and fabric selections for the backing and binding provided, so I can purchase it at the same time. Quilt kits are so wonderful! dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

Sylvia said...

I bought a quilt kit only once, for a double wedding ring quilt that I didn't want to cut myself and that was, you guessed it, a wedding gift. I enjoy choosing fabrics myself, so it's not something I do often.

Mary Lou said...

I've only bought one quilt kit so far. I like the idea of not having to choose your own fabric, I'm still unsure of my self in that department. I've just not found a kit that had both the pattern that I like and fabric that I like. But I especially like kits if they are free. :-)

I like quilt kits, but I've only bought a couple. I'm fine with someone else picking out the fabrics and grouping them together for me. I'd love to win the jelly roll and pattern.

I do like scrappy quilts, but kits are great for taking along on vacation, or when moving to a new posting, so I will occasionally buy a kit or two. Thanks for the chance!

Chris {frecklemama} said...

I really like kits but they have to be affordable. The most complemented quilt I've made recently was a Fig Tree kit called Cherry Delight. I enjoyed changing it a tiny bit to suit my style.

I think kits should be offered like this: I pick out a patter (let's say a Jaybird pattern) and tell you what fabric line I want it in. You cut the kit then send it. It's hard to sell a kit where the pattern AND pre-picked fabric appeal to lots of people. Make sense?

I've been so loving this hugs and kisses pattern! I'm eager to try a quilt kit! I've never tried one. I'm rather newish to quilting and the few I've made have all been "from scratch". A kit might well be refreshing!

I like a lot of quilt kits but not all of them. I think if Im compelled to buy one, of course, I am liking both the pattern and the fabrics used. Sometimes though, you receive a fabric in a kit that you wouldnt have ever selected and it goes perfectly with the others. Sometimes, although I love to choose (and even touch)fabric, you just don't have that kind of time.

I have never bought a quilt kit, yet, but they seem like a lot of fun, kind of like colour-by-numbers for quilting.
