The Best Quilt Kits For Your Next Sewing Project

Quilt Kits are a great way to get everything you need to start quilting, or to expand your quilting empire. But with so many quilting kits available, how do you choose the right one for your needs?

If you're thinking of picking up quilting as a hobby, or if you've made a quilt kit and you're looking for your next project, our guide to quilting kit is the perfect place to start! There are so many different types of quilting kits available on the market today, so it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. In this blog post, we will discuss how to choose the right quilting kit for your needs and provide tips for beginners who are just starting out in the world of quilting. We will also provide a few recommendations for quilting kits for sale so let’s get started!

Here are a few things to keep in mind when selecting a quilting kit:

- What is your quilting style? When it comes to quilt kits, quilters often gravitate to the colors or look of the quilt upon first glance. Quilt kits come in a variety of colors and styles, so it's important to find one that speaks to you. When selecting a quilt kit, take a look at the colors included and see if they resonate with you. If not, keep looking until you find the perfect one! This way, you can see what the finished quilt will look like and make sure you're happy with the colors before you start working on it.

- How difficult is the pattern? Selecting between a beginner, intermediate, or advanced quilting pattern can be the difference between a simple weekend quilt and a month long quilting project. Most quilt patterns tend to become more difficult as the pieces become smaller and smaller. Not only are smaller fabric pieces harder to manage, but long sharp edges can also make the quilting process longer.

- How large is the quilt? When choosing a quilt kit, it's important to consider the finished size of the quilt. Are you looking for a baby quilt kit to use as a gift? A large king sized quilt kit for your new bed? A lap quilt that you can finish in a weekend? Finding a small quilt kit that you would need to enlarge or a large quilt kit you're looking to make smaller is a recipe for dissatisfaction. The store you purchased the quilt kit from might not have the  exact additional fabrics you need to enlarge the quilt, leaving you searching online for hours to find a fabric that is no longer available. Quilt kits come in all sorts of sizes, from small lap quilts to large king-sized quilts so finding the size is a key to matching your expectations.

- What is the quality of the quilting supplies? When it comes to quilting, you get what you pay for. If you want top-quality quilting fabric, be willing to spend a bit more on your quilting kit. On the other hand, if you're just getting started with quilting or are on a tight budget, there are plenty of high-quality quilting kits available at an affordable price.

By taking the time to choose the right quilting kit for your needs, you'll be sure to get everything you need to start (or continue) your quilting journey!

Pre Cut Quilt Kits

Quilting is a fantastic way to express your creativity, but it can also be daunting for beginner quilters. There are so many different quilting kits available, and it's hard to know where to start. The good news is that you don't need a lot of fancy materials to get started. In fact, all you really need is a quilt top, pattern, thread, and backing fabric (don’t forget your machine!). Quilt tops are usually made from pieced together fabric shapes and includes the binding. Backing fabric is the bottom layer of the quilt, and it's typically a solid piece of fabric. Once you have these three materials, you're ready to start quilting!

If you're looking for an easier way to make a quilt, we recommend precut quilt kits. Precut quilt kits were born as a solution to making quilting easier, less intimidating, and beginner friendly. Many people struggle with arthritis, vision problems, and quilters who can’t use a rotary cutter anymore.  Not to mention the biggest problem, reading the quilt pattern instructions incorrectly and cutting all of the fabric pieces the wrong size/shape, leading to a failed project. Ready to sew precut quilt kits can be a little more expensive, but we feel that they're definitely worth it. They save you time and money, because you don't have to worry about cutting your fabric - it's done for you.

Not only are our precut quilt kits easy to use, but they also come in a variety of colors and patterns to suit any taste. So whether you're looking for a modern kit or a more traditional one, we've got you covered.

Convenience: Precut quilt kits save time and effort in measuring, cutting, and organizing fabrics.

Consistency: All the fabrics in a precut quilt kit have been chosen to complement each other, so you don't have to worry about color or pattern coordination.

Accessibility: For beginner quilters or those with limited sewing experience, a precut quilt kit provides a great starting point.

Cost-effective: Precut quilt kits can be more economical than buying fabrics individually since they often include all the fabrics needed for the project.

Variety: Precut quilt kits are available in a wide range of colors, patterns, and styles to suit different tastes and preferences.

Confidence: Some people may feel more confident in their sewing skills when using a precut quilt kit, as they have a clear guide to follow.

Gift-giving: Precut quilt kits make great gifts for quilters or sewing enthusiasts.

Creativity: Even though the fabrics are preselected, there's still room for creativity in designing the layout and adding personal touches. 

Organization: Precut quilt kits usually come with clear instructions and diagrams, making it easy to stay organized and avoid mistakes.

Time-saving: Precut quilt kits can be a good option for quilters who want to make a quick project without spending a lot of time on fabric selection and preparation.

Tips from our founder, Karen Tripp

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is how can we help a customer select a quilt kit. Below are 3 tips I've complied to assist you in making your decision.

"It is important to know what size of quilt you want to make (including the number of quilt blocks). The most popular sizes are twin and full/queen sizes. The size of the quilt can make the difference between a weekend project or a project that might take weeks! The second question you might want to ask yourself is what is the occasion for the quilt? If you are wanting to make a quilt for a special holiday or event, you will want to find a kit that has festive colors or prints. On the other hand, if you want to make a quilt for every day use, you will likely want to choose a more muted color palette. The third question is how much time do I have to dedicate to this project? If you are looking for a quick project, you might want to consider a kit that has larger pieces or fewer pieces. A kit with lots of small pieces might be better suited for someone who wants a longer term project.

It's all about color! Consider the colors you would like in your quilt top as well as the feel or mood you want to convey. Would you like your quilt to be playful or more subdued? Do you want the quilting to be the star of the show or more of a background player? There are many beautiful hand-dyed fabrics that can really make a statement. On the other hand, if you're looking for a more low-key look, consider using solid fabrics. Texture is also an important consideration when selecting fabrics for your quilt top. Do you want your quilt to have a lot of dimension and interest? Then consider using some fun novelty prints or mixing in some corduroy or velveteen fabrics. If you're looking for a more traditional look, then sticking with cotton fabrics might be the way to go.

Review the different types of kits available taking note of what is included in each one.

Once you've decided on the size, occasion, and overall look of your quilt, it's time to start shopping for kits! Here at The Quilt Kit Co., we have a wide variety of kits to choose from.

When looking for a quilt kit, it's important to consider the store's return policy in case you're not satisfied with your purchase. Quilt kits can be expensive, so it's important that you're happy with the kit before you buy it. Purchasing online can be scary, especially if you're shopping from an online store for the first time. It's even more scary if you're a quilter. We've all purchased a quilt kit from an Etsy shop and upon receiving the kit, we see that the colors aren't the colors we wanted. Or worst yet, the fabrics have been swapped and don't look anything like the photo you saw! Then, when you try to return your quilt kit, the Etsy store rejects you as they have a no return policy! If you're unsure about the store's policies, we recommend asking the store directly. Most stores will be happy to answer any questions you have about their policies. Quilt kit shopping should be fun, so don't let the fear of not being able to return a quilt kit stop you from enjoying the process!

If you're looking for the perfect gift for a friend or family member who loves quilting, we recommend purchasing a quilt kit. Quilt kits make great gifts because they come with everything the recipient needs to make a quilt, including the fabric, pattern, and instructions. Quilt kits also come in a variety of different styles and colors, so you can find the perfect kit for your loved one. Not to forget, a precut quilt kit is the perfect project to bring on a retreat so you can concentrate on sewing a gorgeous, memorable quilt!
