Craftsy Quilting Kit Spree

On Black Friday, I didn’t venture out of the house.  We started decorating by putting up my village pieces, setting up the Christmas train around the village, and decorating the Christmas tree.  I guess I also fell prey to a few online sales . . . specifically Craftsy.  They had quilting kits on sale then and also on another day.  I ended up ordering FOUR of them.  What?!!  All of these kits include the pattern and fabrics for the quilt top and maybe even the binding.  I thought you might like to see what caught my eye, and what you will see us complete sometime during 2018.

Kit #1 – Puzzle Tropic


Tropical batiks are used to form a 3D chain-link fence pattern in this quilt that finishes 48″ x 60″.  I can see us making this in other fabrics as well and maybe even adding a border for a good size throw.

Kit #2 – Block Out Modern


This kit features Lily & Loom fabric in what they call a ‘modern’ pattern.  I don’t really see the modern part, but okay.  The quilt finishes at 43″ x 50″ so that is a generous baby quilt.  The fabric colors really draw me in every time I look at this picture.

Kit #3 – Disappearing Nine-Patch


I have been wanting to make a disappearing patch quilt, whether it is of the four- or nine-patch variety.  Since I liked the fabric in this one, I thought it might be a good one to give it a try.  It features an animal print and nice bright colors.  At 75″ x 90″ that is perhaps a twin size quilt.  What do you think?

Kit #4 – Charmburst Space Camp


I was drawn to this kit mostly because of its fabric by Lily and Loom called Space Camp.  It uses space-theme fabrics AND it has stars.  That will be a fun one to make for Dominic, I think.  The block is the variable star and it finishes at 69″ x 69″.  Shoot – a square quilt.  Maybe we’ll have to make some minor changes to get a rectangle out of it!


Which one do you think we should make first?

  1. I’m loving Charm Burst Space Camp. It is a happy quilt.

      I’m ashamed a bit to say that now of these have been started yet. But they are on my UFO list for this year! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. What!!! They got you BIG time! Glad you did it and not me. I think you should make the first quilt. It looks so pretty! Go for the gusto! 🙂

  3. I love all of them but….wait for it….my vote is #4! Are you surprised? I have only completed one Craftsy kit and it was the red, white, and blue stars quilt that I posted. I was more than pleased with it. The fabrics were very good quality and I even had some left over and added a larger border. I am looking forward to following along while you all work on these. Hope you all are ready for Christmas. 🙂

      Hi Peggy,
      What?!! You like the one with stars in it?! I can’t believe it. HAHA! I am not ready yet . . . I still have some cookies to bake, a cheesecake to make, presents to wrap, and more . . . I’m not thinking about it yet. But it will all come together somehow. 😉 ~smile~ Roseanne

    You sure went on a spree but such great value. One of the first quilts I made a couple of years ago was a disappearing nine match learned from Jenni at Missouri. It was fun and I liked it. Space Camp one will be awesome.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Kathryn,
      I think that Space Camp fabric is so darn cool! I just had to get it and make it for Dominic. I like the D9P, too, and will probably start with that one especially if it’s easy. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I love them all, but it was the disappearing nine patch in the linky picture that prompted me to stop in.
    I never even thought about sites such as Craftsy having black Friday or Cyber Monday sales. I need to keep that in mind for next year.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Marsha,
      I’ll bet they might have an after-Christmas sale as well. I don’t recall from last year – maybe that’s a good thing! HAHA The D9P seems to be the big winner so far. ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. Mari says:

    Nice choices! I always buy kits and then break them up and use the fabric for other projects. It’s a great way to buy discounted fabrics! That said, I like the fabric in the 9-patch the best. It would be fun to work on something bright during the winter! (Merry Christmas to you and yours!)

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Mari,
      Merry Merry Christmas to you and your family as well. That makes four votes for the D9P . . . I think that makes it the big winner. ~smile~ Roseanne

  7. Shannon Fleming says:

    I agree with Vicki. The D9P is easy and will come together quickly!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Shannon,
      That’s two votes for the D9P . . . and I’m anxious to make one anyway so we could say three votes. ~smile~ Roseanne

  8. Gretchen says:

    They’re all cute patterns and the fabrics are nice too. The Puzzle Tropic appeals to me, I do that one first. Just leave a row off charm burst space camp then you’ll easily have a rectangle quilt. I like rectangle quilts better too. I also wonder sometimes what makes a ‘modern’ quilt. I’ve decided if I use brighter fabrics, then it’s modern. But the fabrics in Block Out Modern don’t look that bright. It will make a lovely quilt whether it’s modern or old fashioned. Have a Blessed Christmas!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Gretchen,
      The Puzzle Tropic is appealing – I agree! It is a different color palette than what we usually go for, and we don’t use batiks often either. Merry Christmas to you and your family as well. I know we will have a lot of fun and laughter. ~smile~ Roseanne

  9. Vicki in MN says:

    I think you should do the D9P first, it is easy and fun to see it come together. I have done a few of these and love the process.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Vicki,
      I agree! That’s why I picked that picture to put in the header – it looks quick and easy. ~smile~ Roseanne
