To kit or not to kit

What are your thoughts on kits for class projects? Do you like them?

As I am preparing kits for an upcoming class, I am pondering the question "How many students find them helpful?".

Usually, I like to let students make their own fabric choices so they can be assured of colors and patterns they enjoy. In class, I suggest ways the students can alter the arrangement of the blocks or change the pattern in some way to make it their own. Perhaps, it is the length of the class time that controls our creativity -- the shorter the class the more controlled we must be.
