OT: Any quilters? (UPDATED... quilt finished!)
Can anyone recommend a good online quilting shop? Maybe one that sells full kits? I've only made one quilt in my life, but I've been feeling the itch to make another one soon...

The odd thing: I can't get the Connecting Threads site to load at all. Is it down?

I quilt also, but do not shop online for quilt fabric the way I do yarn.

With yarn, you are likely to make a project with just one type of yarn, and you can order several skeins of one dye lot to make sure they match.

In quilting, you are intentionally picking several different fabrics. They have to coordinate. That's difficult to do by just seeing a snapshot online.

I'm afraid I really can't offer an online fabric site for you.

Silver, I tend to also agree with MoniDew. If I remember where I think you are in Jax, there used to be several nice quilt shops in the area.


Keepsake Quilting kits

Keepsake used to be the place i would do online shopping for patterns and accesseories, but they do have a lot of kits.

They use to also have a swatch catalog to order that gave you almost 1000 2x2 swatches,

I've ordered a few quilting things from This place:
http://www.clotilde.com/

they have quilting kits, accessories, patterns, tools, and sewing stuff. They shipped fairly quickly.

But I'm not a "quilter". I'm re-learning my basic sewing skills on a couple basic patterns I got from them..... so I don't know if the kits are any good.

Yeah, I checked them out but they only seem to sell fabrics in packs and I don't particularly like their kits either. Who woulda thought... I love Knit Picks, but am not all too thrilled with Connecting Threads. :(


Ok, You're right... DeeKnit and MoniDew... I guess it's best if I get off my butt and actually go to a quilting shop.

Thanks for the help everyone!
