    Another note. It really isn't that new, just a new focus on a quit/pattern/design stye. But more later when I have some time to really think about it.
    Thanks for stopping in here, Holice. I think the subject has been pretty well discussed and been interesting.

    If I were a betting person, I'd bet that some quilt kits are put together by the fabric manufacture just to sell their product. Some combinations have NO appeal to me at all - none what so ever.

    Yes, I agree that some quilt kits/patterns that we see online are put out to sell a product line. I ran across one pattern recently that I really like, but my son and I agree that the color combinations are horrific. It does speak to me as being a "modern" quilt. I'm working on recreating it with a color palette that I like as I think the pattern itself is great.

    Cheers, K
