    I do not care for them in a quilt. Yes, they are cute, to look at but I can't see making them into a quilt.

    These are fabulous and you might be missing out by not ordering them. I would love to purchase some of it. You can always add color in other ways.

    Sure in moderations, wouldn't want to try to unload bolts and bolts of the prints.
    Just passing through!

    I think they are pretty but they would be of no interest to me. But if I had young daughters, I might.

    I think they are beautiful. It reminds me of my two girls. Not only are they sisters they are BFF's.

    Love the fabric - it kind of reminds me of black & white photos of children, in that you focus on the subject matter more because there isn't color to distract you. Absolutely charming, and I have to have some of it! I'm thinking a quilt for my daughter (who is a mother herself), and some for a quilt for myself. It would be adorable for a new baby quilt, too (because it focuses on all the lovely 'firsts' and 'highpoints' in a child's life). Wonderful!

    I like them, I bet you would finally figure something to do with them. Maybe give them as a gift to someone who would use them.

    I love them. If I saw a bolt of this is a fabric store I would buy several yards even if I didn't have a project in mind. There are so many possibilities for projects other than quilt blocks. I, personally, would only use additional shades of the same colors rather than trying to brighten them up, i.e., golds, browns, blacks and creams. I bet you'll see some beautiful completed projects made from this fabric.

    It reminds me of the other nostalgia line recently - Dick and Jane? Rosy-cheeked little cuties in old fashioned clothes playing with games and toys that even I barely remember seeing at my grandmother's. Something the grannie will buy because it is nostalgic and then wonder why the 9 year old throws it under the bed? LOL.

    But on the plus side the graphics are gorgeous and the sepia tones really soften up the darker browns.

    You know your market! If you sell a lot of novelty prints, better grab it!

    I think they would have limited appeal. Some people would buy some amounts but, as someone else stated, they aren't my cup of tea ... unless they were on sale.

    I think some people will love them, and will go to any length to get them, but I also think the fabric could sit on your store shelves for a long time if the right people don't walk by to see them...

    I like them. I would prefer them in colors but I do think I could work around the sepia by using civil war fabrics to go with them. Actually then I think they would make a beautiful quilt!

    These are fabulous! Order them! I can already see the quilt I would make from this. I love the coordinates as well.

    Very cute, I would definitely try these ones! Paired with a dark brown and a shell pink they would be stunning.
    This fabric would be just perfect for a....

    Both ideas are great! I have yet to look on the website but I can see doing a quilt for my BFF..not because we knew each other when we were young...but she has 3 girls. Just right for her (we didn't know each other till H.S.)

    I really love them! I, like many others here, like the sepia tones. I hope I will see them in my fabric store hangouts!
    I also love earth tones so just right for me! Also loved the ones of the dolphins and "children of the sea" series.

    Love them

    I really like the sepia tones on these very nostalgic looking. I think the many different shades of browns are great.

    I'd say order 2 bolts of each or you'll be sorry when the fabric is all gone the first week.

    But it would seem that we're in the minority on this one.
