I think some quilts have too much quilting and it makes them appear stiff and not necessary to have all that fine quilting. When batting could not live through washing and had to be quilted every inch it was necessary to take the time. Now you can space it every four inches. Do you think it is a trend to stitch close? I get tired of micro stitching if I am quilting. Some of it looks great in a open space, but do it on busy fabric?
The name of fabrics. I was looking for more fabric to finish a quilt and noticed the fabric did not have a name in the savage edge. When CT asked on facebook what Fabric line were you quilting with; it is a bit hard when you buy dark 5" blocks left over from many groups and you don't take the time to mark the fabric to it name or should you?
