    or would you prefer this quilt kit in different colors

    [img]http://www.keepsakequilting.com/imag...px?IMAGE=https://www.kqimageserver.com/kqimages/parts/5313.JPG&NAME=%20%20%20%20%20KALEIDOSCOPE%20BLOCK%20OF%20TH E%20MONTH%20COMPLETE%20KIT[/img]


    I don't know, olive green and purple? I would love to see it in shades of blue. I don't know anyone whose bedroom is done in shades of olive green and purple.

    I was looking through the new Keepsake catalog and noticed a lot of quilt kits, etc in colors that make me go bleh....

    Am I being oldfashioned? Are these the new modern colors? I'm not even going to mention the price...

    yes, and I hated those colors then and now!!
    Just an aside, our neighbors went to take up some avocado green shag carpet in their living room, found out the house, which was modular, had been carpeted BEFORE the interior walls were put up. So the carpet went under the inside walls. What a mess.

    I like the blues and purples but not so much the other colors. They don't go very well, in my opinion.

    Still like those colors together.

    We had a couch with the fabric in those colors on cream along with blue and brown. it was a floral - but not "flowery" - Jacobean, maybe? type of design.

    If I could get that couch again (in good condition), I'd snatch it up in a heart-beat!

    The quilt you showed - it is pretty - but also kind of blah.

    The quilt is gorgeous, but I personally would prefer a different shade of green, maybe lighter or else more of a true green or even a teal. But those are my favorite greens so I might be a bit prejudiced!

    I agree with you, it is blah. DIdn't like the combo years ago and still feel the same. Would love various shades of blues and purples, but green is definitely out.

    I would like to see it in different colors. Maybe it needs something to make it pop alittle.

    the "designer" - it is a designer BOM kit. I wonder, if they ever thought to offer it in 2 color schemes and see which one sells better.

    I agree, it's blah. Definitely, prefer at least a different shade of green. It takes away from the pattern

    I just looked at the kits online, and - hate to tell you this - but there are lots of quilt kits in those colors. Maybe the powers that be have decided those are the "in" colors for the next year.

    I love the olive and eggplant colors, they are very in. The blue no so much, but I think it is still a beautiful quilt!

    I remember many years ago, hearing an "expert" saying how the new colors were going to be desert tones or some such thing.

    I kept making quilts in colonial blues and roses and they kept on selling.
