    The sales rep said that when they showed it at Market, it wasn't only the younger people who liked it. She said that it found fans among all age groups.

    Personally, my favorite design is the leafy vines. Those, I think, are not such a "big stretch" from some of the more traditional fabrics that I gravitate toward.

    I must confess that I have no idea how to use the zigzag prints though. And Moda is not the only company who has those in their line-up. Riley Blake has three sizes of zigzags, and I think Robert Kaufman has one too.

    I surprised myself by liking them all. But I do like the eggplant and plum fabrics the best.

    I love the entire fabric line.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Slightly off topic. . .
    Do you happen to know if the designer is Vanessa Christienson? I think V and Co. is her company and she's the woman that designed the houndstooth quilt that I absolutely LOVE.

    You can see a version someone made in red and white here if you are interested:

    BTW. . . I love the fabrics and love the idea of making a picnic blanket and matching outfit for my daughter. Not all fabrics would look good in both.

    The ombre is pretty, but looking at the entire line makes me think I am in the 60's again. Individually, they would be nice - BUT those colors together??Not so much.

    My first impression was "Been there, done that." It gave me a retro feel. I wouldn't buy unless I needed one of the solid colors to go with a traditional print.

    I lived the 60's..... been there, done that. But, understand the younger set is all 'crazy' over it these days. I've done so many things for my GD using prints very similar.... so I can see why it's popular. But, I'll pass.

I have been looking for place to preorder some precuts - I don't want to miss this one. If you check out her blog - she has really cute ideas using the colors -

    I liked it all-But it does scream, maybe some other time buying for me-I use a lot of Moda for my quilts, and have plenty of Stash to use up first-low on money now that I'm retired, but will buy some if it goes on sale sometime

    I am in love with the Bloom quilt! I'm in a civil war, primitive phase right now. This could definitely pull me out of it for a bit. By the time it is released in October I think I'll be ready, i.e.. have some projects off the table! I can't wait.

    Those ombres are too die for! I absolutely adore ombre fabric. I used some as the center of a quilt called a Bunch of Squares and it really added something nice to it. These colors are so bright and clear I might have to have the jelly roll but also some yardage as well. There are so many ways to use it in quilts that I can't wait.

    Thanks for the preview of it.

    I also have been looking online to preorder, as well as asking/requesting it from my LQS.
    I CAN'T WAIT!
    And on the topic of what to do with it? I just want to own it, like most of my fabric purchases, LOL

    When I saw this fabric I immediately thought of my Grandaughter who will soon graduate from college, and who told me just the other day that her favorite color is orange. I thought yikes! How am I going to make an orange quilt? But when I saw this tangerine, I knew she would love it. Can't wait to be able to purchase it. Thanks so much for sharing new fabrics with us.

    I'm not really a neutral person, but that grey hummed my name - I think I would do something with the greys and a punch of color, maybe the aquatic blue or tangerine - something a little unexpected. but it would have to go to the bottom of the pile, which is getitng higher and higher the more time I spend on this board!
