I don’t know about you but I have never bought quilt kits. I have often wanted to try one as there are so many wonderful designs out there. As such I thought I would do a little search on the internet and see what kind of quilt kits are out there these days. First up are some quilt kits from Fat Quarter Shop. The first one is a table runner I think is super fresh and cheery. It is called Cherry Pickin’ by Me and My Sister Designs for Moda Fabrics.
Here is another from Fat Quarter Shop called Leafy Quilt Kit featuring Adventure by Elizabeth Hartman. I really adore the colors and the sharp shapes of the leaves.
Next up we have the company Keepsake Quilting. The first one is called Glo Kit by MJ Kinman. I am a big fan of any quilts that have a stained glass look and this one brings out the look of gems!
The following kit is Galaxy Quilt by Karen Bialik for Timeless Treasures. I understand blues of all kinds are truly in this year and so this one caught my eye. It is traditional yet truly mesmerizing and modern, in my opinion.
Another company with a lot to look at is Missouri Star Quilt Co. A kit of theirs I fell in love with is Homeward Paisley Splash Kit by Heidi Pridemore for Windham Fabrics. It comes in at least one other color combination as well. I love anything elephant and this is just super fun!
Yet another kit from Missouri Star Quilt Co. is Under the Stars Kit by American Jane for Moda Fabrics. I think this one is such a fresh and dimensional quilt. There is a sense of playfulness along with almost traditional blocks. If I were to buy any of these kits I think this is one I would love to make.
The next company is Connecting Threads and the next kit is Good Morning Mugs Table Runner Kit by Lori Holt. This one struck me as it reminded me of my last column and Sue Spargo’s cup quilt. I can imagine adding a lot of detail to these fun coffee cups.
The next kit is by Mari Martin. There is something very sweet and innocent about butterfly quilts. They date back many decades but are still so timeless.
The last company to take note of is Nancy’s Notions. The first is just a fun quilt for any child or dinosaur lover! It is called Dinorama Quilt Kit and is very simple, fun and cheerful.
In rather sharp contrast is a very geometric and modern quilt kit called Picnic Point Quilt Top Kit. I figured you may like to see something modern and subtle with a bit of imperfection, which I always love.
I hope I offered up some inspiration for your next quilt project, or your first!
