    Hi, I can't quite tell the color...black and white? or the size of the print. But I think I would incorporate it into a quilt using blacks, whites and a touch of red.

    IMHO

    I hate to be negative but the fabric looks like it is covered by testicles.
    Let's not go there again.

    I agree with strawberry, if you turn it around, it looks like two people embracing. It would make an awesome totebag or purse and if you have some left over, put a large square in a quilt. The totebag would be a great conversation starter. People will ask what it is and you can ask what they see. A variety of answers have been given already. Have fun with it. Now, I want some.

    I'm thinking armless women with big shoes on. What about paint, application and free motion to turn it into a bunch of wild and wacky women?

    I think it is a kitchen print. Doesn't it look like canning jar tongs and slotted spoons? I agree with the suggestion of a tote. pillow or even stack and whack. I was also thinking that if you cut it just right you could make it look like those ink blot pictures that psychiatrists use to analyzes their patients!

    Whatever you end up doing with it, please post your photos of the finished product. I know that we are all curious to see what you do with it!

    If you are in the US, I would love to exchange a half yard of fabric from my stash. Give me a color, stripes, dots, novelty, etc. We can PM mailing addresses.

    I would say, if you really like the material, use it for a quilt lining and make it reversible

    It really is soft. It is an odd fabric.

    Yes it is. Worth all of the hoopla it seems to have created.

    So...Interesting story. I got all excited when I got the fabric in the mail today - it certainly helped brighten my day (it was kind of rough). Fiance and I were eating dinner (spaghetti), we don't have a dinning room table so we eat on the floor in the living room (one bedroom apartment). The fabric was sitting on the couch near my computer mouse. Finace grabs the mouse which causes the fabric to fall on my plate. :( Fortunately it's fabric and can be washed.

    Hey - looks like a candidate for a whole cloth quilt - maybe African in nature - mud cloth. I think it would look really neat as large blocks with very bright fabric surrounding each block - oh yeah!

    Maybe I'm the only one, but I think it looks a bit phallic!! I'd use it in a way that cuts it into small pieces!

    ROFL Girl where have you been? We have been having phallic fabric fun for a few weeks. I think most of the fun was on the other thread.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/20687.page might be an interesting read for you.

    Trust me, you're not the only one. Check out the Ugly Fabric Adoption thread.
