Peer pressure is right! My word, between you and Julie, I swear, I'm going to have to start feeding my kids fabric. :P

Tracey J said...

I've still been resisting... I don't know how much longer I'll last.

Stacey said...

Mine is turning into pinwheels! It's beautiful stuff.

Sandra said...

I don`t know why but I see circles...
I really like the colours of this line.

I resisted for a really long time. But now I have either fat qtrs or 1/2 yards in each fabric. I guess I was afraid I would resist too long and then it would turn out like FMF and become IMPOSSIBLE to find. Ounce of prevention...

Isn't it awesome fabric...I know what I'm doing with the rest of mine...but probably won't get to start it for a couple of weeks!

Candi said...

I have fat quarters of all the fabrics and they are all so beautiful. I decided to do a half-square triangle quilt. Working on it now!

I was thinking about the "new wave" quilt by oh fransson as also seen on spun sugar quilt's blog

my hope valley turned into a bow tie block quilt. it was gorgeous, until i started quilting it. now i sort of hate it. i'm only halfway through, though. i should love it by the end.

I DO love this fabric. I'd suggest cathedral windows or, if that's just too much work and you are a want it now gal like me, check out Judy Laquidara's Peaches & Cream quilt top at www.patchworktimes.com. It's simple and would look great with these prints!

Kris said...

Oh I love, love, love Hope Valley! Jealous? Much!

Jennifer said...

You know that I got some and each evening we have a little chat about the awesome pinwheels that Rachel is sharing! Each piece jumps up and says "Hey cut me next!"

Knowing you . . . it will look awesome!

Amanda Jean's whirly gig would look great in these!

LOL -- this is the third blog in a row that is convincing me that I can't live without a certain fabric line -- and my heart agrees completely. Unfortunately, my wallet refuses to listen. One of these days....

I'm in. I agree. Yes. And all of that.

Mistea said...

Those fabrics sure are gorgeous - Love all that colour. Enjoy whatever you make - In the meantime just enjoy drooling.

Anina said...

A quilt. I'd definitely suggest a quilt. :o)

Miss Nancy said...

There is just something simple and serene about Hope Valley line from Free Spirit. I love it as well. Enjoy the fabric for a while and then make a lovely quilt.

Have a super great day.

LOL! At least it's *positive* peer pressure. I mean, c'mon, it's fabric, right? Yummy, beautiful fabric! :)

Carolyn S. said...

I agree with Jennifer above. What about a bow tie quilt with an edgy color background. It would be very graphic which I like. Unfortunately my lqs doesn't carry any fabrics like this.

I shouldn't have read this post. It gave me itchy fingers. Had to even record it for posterity:

Rachel...Thanks for showing this fabric. I ended up getting some Fat Quarters and plan on making the Hope Valley Quilt by Ellen Maxwell at www.freespiritfabric.com. She used the Hope Valley fabrics. Blessings to ya, Karen
