Quilt Kits

We specialize in quilt top kits. Our kits use only quilt shop quality fabric, and we cut the required fabric accurately and with attention to detail. Every effort is to present you with a kit that is fun to piece, with clear instuctions as to the component fabrics and required materials. If substitutions are made, the fabric is carefully chosen from the same collection. Unless otherwise specified, our kits include the fabric for the quilt top, border, and binding, as well as the pattern/book. If you already own the pattern/book and do not want another copy, e-mail us and the value will be deducted from the price.

Laura's Feng Shui Quilt Top Kit 2 (bright color way)

Using the pattern "Circle Dance" by Elisa's Backporch, and a beautiful variety of Hoffman Batiks, I pieced this dramatic quilt top. Bright colors!

Although the curved piecing in this quilt looks complex, please do not be intimidated. Try it, it's really fun! The shapes are precisely and easily cut using acrylic templates from Elisa's Backporch. The curves are gentle, and with just a bit of practice, ease in nicely. And the best part.... quarter circle blocks are precisely trimmed down to size, removing your imperfections. Blocks are then oriented to create a pleasing effect (my thanks to Wesley for patiently arranging my blocks).

After sewing the final seam, I carefully smoothed the quilt top back onto the design wall, and took a step back. Just looking at the design helped my feel peaceful, centered, and calm. I decided to name my quilt, "Feng Shui", in reference to the "ancient Chinese system of aesthetics believed to utilize the Laws of both heaven (astronomy) and earth (geography) to help one improve life by receiving positive Qi" (definition from Wikipedia).

Backing is not included in the kit price. This is offered as an option, and if you choose this, we would happily pick 4.25 yards of a suitable backing print from the collection. If you prefer to choose your own backing, click on the backing option, then type your backing choice in the "special instructions & comments" box, found near the top of the online order form.

You do need the pattern "Circle Dance" by Elisa's Backporch, and this pattern is included with the 7" Crazy Curves Acrylic Template. If you plan to use a scattering of smaller circles too, you'll also need the 3.5" Crazy Curves template. These templates allow you to cut the shapes easily and accurately. A 28mm rotary cutter is useful in this regard.
