Yes, too pretty to cut;but also too busy. I would leave it in the store.

I know girls that would be thrilled to have their bedrooms decorated with these colors! Picking matching solid colors would be perfect for larger things, and use this print for quilt borders, pillow shams, accent pillows and curtain valances. Little housecoats and sleep-over bags would add to their personalized theme too! Strips of it would be perfect to decorate bath towels. Thanks for posing the question, Nan!

Not seasonal at all, but I'm in the minority, I don't like it at all. Reminds me of bathroom wallpaper for some reason.

FavoriteFabrics ... You often put threads like this about fabric ... what would you do with this? how would you use this fabric? etc.

Do you do this to get an idea about what people think about fabric, to decide whether to order it?

I don't think I've ever seen you say your opinions about the fabric. And I know some think it's because you have the fabric and don't know what to do with it yoursself, though I don't think that's the case.

Hope you will share a little ........ Thanks!

BQ2, match 2 other fabrics that is in this one and showcase this one as the big block.I would also fussy cut the bigger block from this fabric. But that is just my idea. What ever you do will be pretty because you have pretty fabric to start with.

It has hearts... but the colors aren't traditional "Valentine's Day" colors.

Does it come across as seasonal to you?

How would you use this?

Not seasonal at all, IMO!

Love it. Coverlet of Triple Irish chain using white as the basic and every one of the colors in the fabric in the chain. Use your Fabric for the backing. This way you have choice of which coverlet to use. Would do same with dust ruffle, one side white and the other side the fabric. Also, fabric valance and bows holding back white curtains. Sounds great to me.
