Some of those are quite nice and some of them are, shall we say, less appealing to me. Thanks for the heads up.

The colors are muted. I can't decide if they're Edwardian or if they're trying to go Art Deco. I haven't watched the series, but maybe that's the right look?

Anyway, interesting marketing concept, and I'll have to see if the company has any suggested projects for them.

Hmmm-started out looking like my Grandma's wallpaper and then I'm not sure where we went-lol! Totally weird to me.

It looks like large prints and wallpaper. But then it just might be because I've been working on child's novelty prints all afternoon!

Several have the name with "Dowager" in it and that's what I think of them. Then, where did those pink and green ones come from and how do they all fit together??!! I'm not impressed and I'm big DA fan.


Happy Stitching...Lois

I checked them out. I think they would make great backing fabrics.
