Default What would you do with this fabric?

The heart with the swan in it is about 5" across, and the (vertical) repeat is 24".

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?

I would use it as a wallhanging . or a big block design or the backing . It looks too pretty to cut!!! Who makes it? and would you be selling it??

I'm not sure but a wallhanging would look great. That is gorgeous fabric. I love the colors and the whole pattern is just so pretty. I'd hate to cut it but I guess you could do some applique with it. Just beautiful. I don't think of it as seasonal. Good luck and let us know what you decide. Sue

Don't know if it would work as a kalidascope - can't remember the sizes for the repeat pattern!!

Saw a sample and a book for enormous Lemoyne star pattern using a single fabric cut kaleidoscope fashion - so it radiates out. I think this would be fantastic for that pattern.

It's beautiful. Looks like an Asian type fabric. I can think of all kinds of uses. I would not make it "Valentine"

My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

OBW or similar pattern. It would look pretty for the focus block of Warm Wishes also.
