color dots

Curious...the CT catalog has three or sometimes four colored dots following the description of an item. Usually  that item is a kit of some kind.  I've wondered...are those matching thread colors? Or something else.

Hi!

I am new to EPP. This has got to be the slowest way of quilting ever invented. I am sure that I am not the fastest hand quilter either. I have formed 200 hexagons over the last few weeks. My question is this - how can I keep from splitting my sewing thumb open??? OUCH! It is plain worn out.
