    It would make a cool border for a quilt or wallhanging for a special person or commemorating a special place or event. Fussycut along the lines of the words....and only use certain words if you like, separated by solid fabrics.

    I was given this fabric from someone slashing their stash...not exactly something I would have purchased, but hey I have it now so I might as well find something to do with it...

    Bonnie Hunter says that if you have a fabric you just don't like you should cut it up. If you still don't like it you just haven't cut it small enough. LOL!

    I'd make a teen charity quilt from it and use the fabric for a border. Kids love wordy things...probably why the text so much.

    I wouldn't do a thing to it. I'd add borders of primary colors until it was big enough for a lap or twin.. Then quilt it all over and bind with one of the colors. Any tween would love it!

    It's a quilt with lots of different items in it, you can play the I Spy game trying to find the different things in the quilt. Do a search here on the board for I SPY and you will see some pics and get a great idea. Maybe you will become a convert!! They are great fun to make.

    Looks almost like a skaters fabric, if you know anyone who skateboards it would make a cool quilt or wallhanging perhaps.?
