A subscriber to my YouTube Channel recently asked “where can I find paper-pieced quilt kits sold as complete units with all the fabric I will need?” Because choosing fabric has never been a happy thing for me, I purchase a lot of quilt kits. Here is what I do to locate paper pieced quilt kits.
To my knowledge, the biggest names in the paper piecing quilt pattern world are:
- American designer, Judy Niemeyer, whose company is Quiltworx.com
- Dutch designer, Jacqueline de Jonge, whose company is BeColourful.com
- American designer, Violet Craft, whose company is VioletCraft.com
- American designer, Deb Karasak, whose company is DebKarasak.com
I'm sure there are more great designers out there, so let me know and I'll add them here.
