1. Panel Kits
When it comes to quilting, it doesn’t get any simpler than a panel kit. For a quick quilt to make in a weekend, this is the obvious choice.
If you aren’t familiar with panel kits, they’re essentially a large fabric print that requires no blocking or patchworking. All you have to do is affix the binding and backing, and then quilt your preferred pattern over the surface of the quilt.
Novelty panel kits, featuring beloved characters from properties like My Little Pony and Cars are perfect for kids. If it has their favorite character AND it’s stitched up with love, then it’ll be a gift they’ll treasure for years to come.
