    I bought one kit that came in 12 parts. One of the blocks was on back order, and I was told it would be in in a few days. When I went in later on that same week, I was told that the whole series had been discontinued. It was for the Oregon Centennial and was called The Oregon Trail Quilt. I managed to fudge on the pattern, but wasn't able to match any of the fabrics exactly. No one will ever know this but me, but that one experience has made me leary about buying another kit ever again.

    Alot of times when we created kits at work, we'd make as many as we could with the correct line of fabric...but if the kit was popular or if we ran out of a certain part, we'd substitute with what we considered to be an acceptable substitute. They might be in the same boat. If their customer service is up to par, you should walk out happy despite the "no returns" policy.

    Thank you for all your valuable input. I have definitely learned a lesson here. I will never buy a quilt kit unless I can look at the fabrics and know that if there are substitutions made, I can live with them. I will be going back next week to see what the LQS will do. I can see where some substitutions would be alright but when the major theme of the quilt is ignored then there is no reason to use the kit. I will let you all know what happens. Thanks again.
