I was feeling rather nautical when I put together this combination of orange and blues using Designer Solids and prints from Echo by Lotta Jansdotter. I had so much fun putting together this quilt kit and I could easily have designed a dozen more. I love the flexibility to pick fabrics from different collections and to easily mix prints and solids. It's easy to drag and drop your fabric choices and I could quickly see how the feel of the quilt changed when I tried swapping the orange with agave (teal). It also seems to give a fairly good representation of the scale of the prints, at least as they relate to one another.
Another nice feature is that you can choose to receive a text message when your order ships. Super important when you're anxiously awaiting your fabric purchases; ) There's also in-store pickup so I can be over in a flash when my kit is ready to go. Convenience is key!
It would be nice to have more flexibility in the finished size of your quilt. The pattern I chose makes a king sized quilt while I would prefer it in a queen. Obviously I could scale down the pattern myself but I'd be buying a bit more fabric than I really need. Overall this is a fun and easy way to create your own custom quilt kit!
