    I know what you mean. I ordered some fabric on line that I cannot imagine why I ordered it. Tho' it's not THAT ugly. I stopped ordering late at night! heh heh oh, boy.

    Yep, butt ugly, LOL!

    But these "muddies" can make other colors more vibrant. Try using them in portions of a block, like this one from the Military Barracks Quilt Project here on the board, shown merely as an example - she didn't use this particular fabric.

    I also think if you cut it smaller or into strips to use with other fabrics, you might actually like it

    yes! Looks like snake or other reptile skin. I'm actually trying to do a quilt with a fishing/hunting theme and that would work nicely with it....in little pieces!
