    Nope, sorry. They don't do anything for me at all.

    I liked about 70% of them. I like the first ones with the words. I like gray fabric.

    Like the swirls.

    Do not like the words - but they would be nice for a baby quilt.

    I''m glad I'm on a fabric DIET

    Except for the first group you showed ( with the text and crowns) I like them.

    I like them and would probably put them with some other fabrics. But done right, I think they would be great

    I don't quite know what I would do with the scripted words, but they are all pretty!

    Mostly blah to me except the fleur de lys, ticking stripes, and prints in the 2nd to last grouping. I can imagine a baby's layette inspured by a family's French or Acadian heritage.

    I probably wouldn't buy them. Maybe the swirls, but nothing else. As for making a baby quilt, I want it to be something they would like to look at. Babies are most attracted to black, white, and bright primary colors. They can't see the pastels until they are a little older. They won't be able to read the words until they are MUCH older.
    Sorry, but these don't trip my trigger.

    Methinks you need new co-workers! I wouldn't turn away any of these fabrics. They may not be my first choice, but I guarantee someone will drool over them, and they WILL make gorgeous quilts.

    Well, individually I like them better than as a whole group. meaning I think they would work with something other than others in the group.

    I think they are beautiful. The people that said "eeewww" probably are the type of people who do not "think outside the box" I think they are charming.

    Each pattern suggests different uses. I can see using some of them as edging on pillow cases maybe.

    I think they are cute!
    And also very popular in the 50's .............

    :shock:

    Everything is just OK except for the ones with words (to me they are "ewwwwwws").

    You know, I like them. They are a bit more of a subtle look for baby stuff than you usually see and could make up into something really lovely.

    They seem like a very contemporary color palette with a nod to traditional patterns. I could see younger stylish women liking these for a variety of nursery items. They are subtle and chic. Not really my cup of tea, but I think they definitely will have a group of fans.
