    This is probably from the 1960's. It is so ugly the scissors have been afraid to cut it for 50 years. I do like my cute General Mills iron, though!

    I lost the thread that this belongs in.

    I like it. How about doing some one blok wonders/ kalidescope blocks? The colors are good.

    Notice the feather band at the bottom, was this for clothing, skirts? Who would want giant dancing roosters on their butt?

    I like this fabric too and don't think it's ugly at all. But even if you do think it's ugly, never throw away good fabric. Use it in your next scrappy quilt.

    How to use ugly fabric......cut it up in small pieces and sew it into a block. If it still looks ugly, you just haven't cut it in small enough pieces!
