It's very pretty and I'd probably use it to fussy cut for a bed quilt or special pillows/shams.

I always like heart fabrics and, really, use them in anything, any time as long as it doesn't say Valentine on it. I think the fabric is beautiful. Whatever you decide, let us see the result.

I wouldn't go anywhere near it. To be honest, I don't think I've ever seen anything I like less than that. Sorry.

Too many stripes for a OBW, IMHO. I was just about to post that it's so sweet it makes my teeth hurt, but then I saw that someone else had already said that. Definitely not something I would buy.

Doesn't look seasonal at all. I would just border it and hang it. Beautiful.

I don't see it as Valentine's ... though more likely for a wedding quilt.
How to use it is another question ... but my thoughts would be as the backing, so the design can be seen.

I do like that fabric, though it is definitely NOT something for me!
If I was making something for a true romantic and knew it'd be something they'd adore, then yes.

Tough question!!! It is very pretty fabric. It doesn't look seasonal to me. I have a book intitled, Just Can't Cut it. It has a lot of neat ideas to use fabric that is just too pretty to cut. You might check it out to get some ideas.

I love the fabric, but it does not look like Valentines day to me. I would fussy cut and maybe do something like attic windows or winding ways.
