    This group by Brannock & Patek should be shipping to stores in March. Moda is doing precuts: FQ bundles, jelly rolls, charms, layer cakes and turnovers.

    Please say what you think of the colors. They're lilacs, so I understand the purples and greens and creams but I'm always a little afraid of Moda's browns because sometimes the shade is ... odd. How does the brick red fit in here?

    They are pretty but I really don't like lilacs so they are not my thing.

    LOVE it. Lilacs are huge around here. Rochester has a lovely lilac festival every year.

    Not crazy about the plaids or the large-scale lilacs in the beginning, but the rest is LOVELY! :D

    I love lilacs so I love this fabric. But, not sure how the reds with the lilacs work in with the rest. The other reds without the lilacs would be nice, but not with the other lilac fabrics....

    I like most of this line, except for the red with lilac (color) on it. I love lilac flowers. Not a plaid person, either.

    I love lilacs (grew up in Rochester so it is almost mandatory..lol) but I don't care for the brown or reds in this line. Lilacs are spring flowers so throwing fall colors into the fabric seems wrong and out of balance to me.

    I love it all! Reds, browns, lilacs, plaids. It's really different and I love different. Eye catching.
    I have a difficult time putting things together . . . until I see it. Love it!

    Love the reds, but I'm not a fan of the browns. What a nice collection.

    I like all but the plaids (hard to use without looking like you can't cut straight !:) I may be odd, but I even like the brick and browns-used sparingly-good accent colors with the traditional greens/lilacs. I really like this.

    I hope they are prettier in person, because they seem quite odd to me!

    I can't wait, I hope they make this line in a turnover pack. I am really learning to love those packs. Versatile, quick, easy and all the fabrics work together. Yep, I cannot wait.

    I like the lilac main fabric. I also like most of the rest. I don't like the red ones- they don't go. Also, the plaids are too country for such a romantic design. The browns are more olive colored- not too bad but I wouldn't buy those either.

    I love it. I had lilac's that probably covered an acre when I lived in Minnesota. I have one bush now. I miss them. They always made the spring smell wonderful.

    Your wish will be granted, Moda is doing a turnover pack for this line.
