    I've been going through the fabric totes I got at an estate auction...you can read about it here...

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-138295-1.htm

    And the totes I had gone through so far contained pretty fabric...mostly Moda and Thimbleberries...

    But I've reached a tote that looks like older fabric...from the 90's...

    And you know that saying "if the fabric is still ugly it means you haven't cut it small enough"?

    Well...I beg to differ...you couldn't possibly cut this stuff small enough...though I will try...

    And not only that...there are FOUR YARDS of this ugliness!!! LOL

    It's not that bad. The colors are pretty. Use it for a quilt back.

    I love this fabric...I am so into making house/villages with fabric. I would use this in a landscape fabric too. The colors are perfect lol.
