    I hate to admit how much my age reveals itself, when I look at the colors of Michael Miller's fabric collections. I suspect their designers are a lot younger than I am (and we're all ages here so I'm not too embarassed to say that).

    Anyway... they are coming out with two colorways of their new Christmas 2010 line, and I'd really like to know what you think of these. Please chime in!

    The first six pictures are called the "traditional" colorway, and the last six are "spice".

    Opinions?

    I really like the first one! The red color is vibrant and the pattern crisp. The other two.... well... pretty but not my taste. Plus I have a hard time seeing how you'd use the last two with the first in a quilt.

    Okay, I jumped the gun.. your other posts just came up. Again, the prints with trees and such are wonderful. The circles... look muddy to me.

    Thanks for the preview. This is interesting.

    Personally I dont like any of them. I dont care for the designs at all. They are not traditional enough for my quilting projects, and I usually go with darker, richer colors for my Christmas decorations/quilts/gifts. I do however like the design on the snowflake one and the tree one, but not so much the colors.

    I love it.... I especially love the scrappy one with all the bright colors in it.

    I don't like any of them...at least not for Christmas! I guess I'm just too much of a traditionalist and would rather stick with the red and dark greens...
