    I think they are very pretty. Used with other fabrics in QUILTS (plural) I think they would be beautiful. I wouldn't use them all in the same quilt. Besides you are the only one that you have to satisfy, not the co-workers. Since you find them attractive, you will make some very pretty quilts with them.

    QKO... you must have seen them even before I posted them... 'cause you correctly identified the maker!

    Seriously... this is a group that I would want to see on cloth before ordering. Mostly to know if the gray and cream looks nice together or taupe-y drab.

    I did find one co-worker that liked them. Oh, dear. That's only a 20% approval rating. :|

    Me, too. ;-) I also like the Fleur-de-lys, and the little flowers and ones below them in the second to last post you made. I'm not crazy about the gray fabrics. It's just me, but I don't particularly like gray fabrics. Guess I need to step out of my comfort area! :D

    Wow, I hardly ever dislike a fabric line but you may have found one. Little too drab for my tastes.

    The first set is pretty plain, but might make good background

    I like all the pinks and blues, but not the grays.

    I'd never use grey for a baby----and probably not pink and blue either; I'm a "brights" person. However, I like all but the top set as the others said, to use with other fabrics. Especially like the plaids, ticking and checks. The dot/net---not too much but it might be nice contrast in a scrappy quilt.

    I like them all - and they would be fun to play with, figuring out which ones to put together, depending on who the quilt was for and how you wanted it to "read." Definitely not an "eeewww" in my book.

    I think with the right pattern they could look really elegant. Many times when you look at the fabrics alone, they do not reflect what the whole will look like when finished. I know sometimes when people on the board post unfinished things or a block, I wonder what they were thinking. When they post the finished quilt it is beautiful. Don't doubt yourself based on what others think. It is your quilt and your vision. Good luck and I will be watching to see what you do.

    I like some of them. It's definately not what I would consider baby fabric. Seems like nowadays they are getting away from the baby styles and into the "decorator" lines where every thing for baby has to co-ordinate.

    I like the swirl and floral patterns, and the stripes are OK too, but not so much the crown and word fabrics.

    Very interesting fabrics! The crowns don't do a thing for me, but the rest, to me are "go with" fabrics. Would not buy yardage because they turned me on,but certainly would chose some for blenders.

    I think the dots and swirls are something I would consider purchasing but not any of the others.

    I think they are mix and match type fabrics; each style in it's own is not "enough" so it needs "more" to make the fabrics 'happen'.

    I like them very much. It's a nice departure from the pink/brown and blue/brown combinations that have been so popular for nursery decor. I could see myself using these fabrics if I hadn't already made everything for my granddaughter's nursery (you guessed it...pink & brown).

    Some remind me of the old 'flocked' wallpaper - just not my style.
    However, others of these would make great blender and coordinating fabric in quilts.
    Isn't it nice we each have different tastes in the fabric we choose so the board is never the same twice, never boring? I'm sure some will love these fabrics - will like to see what gets made using some of these.

    I like the word fabrics and the swirly ones. Definitely do not like the damask or the crowns. Some of the others are okay, but probably wouldn't buy the line.

    they aren't 1970's avacado green or gold ewwwwwwwww but sort of bland and uninspiring. There are several that seperatly I liked. But on a whole they really didn't stir any emotions towards wanting or having to have them. sorry.
