    So, I bought this fabric on a trip in San Francisco, in Haight-Ashbury, at a craft store with a nice fabric section. At the time, I loved it, but my family hates it. I was going to use it decoratively, to wrap around a canvas and hang it on the wall, or make a quilted chair rail. But, it is still sitting unused.
    I still think I like it, but I am at a loss as to what I can do with it.

    Any suggestions? Do you like it? What would you do with it? (And no Halloween suggestions, please:-) - thanks.)

    Can you cut out a nice size piece- use batting and a backing -- quilt around the pictures/faces/ etc -- make a wall hanging

    I'm sorry but I have to side with your family. I don't like it at all, even my DD cringed at it and she has weird taste.

    I like the fabric. It is something that I would buy without a plan for it.

    I don't care for it either. Sorry. I would probably cut it up in 2-1/2 widths and use it for a binding. That was my first thought.

    Maybe do a one block wonder? The ones I've seen don't reveal much of the original pattern, just pieces.

    I love it, but I'm into modern abstract decor. Putting it on a canvas is a great idea.
