I’ve only bought a few kits, my favorite was a winding ways quilt precut using Fossil Ferns in flannel. I hand pieced most of it, bought it on a California vacation at my in-laws so I had something to work on. Sat as a UFO for a long time before I machine pieced the rest of it together – still needs quilted though!
If you get the Dear Jane software (from Electric Quilt) you can design the blocks in whatever size you want!
I think I will have my kit together this month, it’s paper pieced so removing the paper is the worst part, lol. I didn’t think thay the dear Jane’s could be resized, that’s a wonderful idea!
I have purchased a few quilt kits and never had much success with them… I wound up just using the kit fabric in another quilt project. I doubt if I ever purchase another… I’m currently working on three projects… I seem to do better and my attention span is better if I change pattern and fabric regularly. My husband noticed the blocks on my sewing table and thought the blocks were all for one quilt… with a look of concern he carefully asked me, “do you think these colors all go together?” Ah no dear, it will be three different quilts… a look of relief washed over his face 😎. Your quilts are beautiful… thank you for sharing
Thanks! I have several projects going too and random blocks. I still think you can put lots of colors together for a scrappy look and it would be great. The look on his face was pretty funny, I bet!
