Featured Shop #13: Quilt Kitz

Posted 03-13-2010 by Sarah | Posted in: Uncategorized

QUILT KITZ VICTORIA, BC, CANADA fontquiltkitz@shaw.ca 250 385 8606 www.quiltkitz.com I’ve been designing quilts on my EQ for over 10 years. After creating a design, I select fabrics and make quilt kits to sell to my customers. Quilting and designing quilts is such a great social network. I have thousands of quilting contacts from all over the world. I get lots of new quilters asking how to get started quilting. I suggest that they start with a small project like a wall hanging or table runner. I recommend that they find a project that uses quilt fuse to make a quick easy result. Probably the best way to learn quilting is take a class. Designing and quilting is like painting with fabric. I have hundreds of bolts of fabrics and I’m still collecting more “paints” to play with. Such fun!
