    Okay, this is my ugly. It looks like it's from the mid 60's. I know some will like it, but not me!

    I believe we should call it "Flower Power".

    This is what I did with some ugly fabric that for the life of me I couldn't figure out why I wanted in the first place. Made about a dozen of these reusable shopping bags using that fabric and painter's drop cloth canvas from Harbor Freight. I had a women at the grocery store just the other day practically drooling over them!!

    Twisted Quilter, I agree it is ugly. Kind of looks like they couldn't decide what color they wanted.

    OK, after DH and DS voting out of 5 really UGLY fabrics, this one came out on top. I took two pics trying to get the color somewhat accurate, one with a flash and one on manual. It is the same fabric! No matter how I set the camera, it is still UGLY!

    Looks like snake skin. You could make turtle heads and legs.

    I actually bought a couple of yards of it-I must have had rose colored glasses on or something-I can't believe I would actually even pick the bolt up, let alone fork over cash for it!!

    Yep, butt ugly, LOL!

    But these "muddies" can make other colors more vibrant. Try using them in portions of a block, like this one from the Military Barracks Quilt Project here on the board, shown merely as an example - she didn't use this particular fabric.

    I also think if you cut it smaller or into strips to use with other fabrics, you might actually like it

    yes! Looks like snake or other reptile skin. I'm actually trying to do a quilt with a fishing/hunting theme and that would work nicely with it....in little pieces!

    I am sure it has some redeaming features-somewhere-in some quilt-I can also see it as reptile skin-not what I would want in a quilt, though! Yes, it could get lost in a strip/scrappy quilt in small pieces I guess. But it just goes to show any fabric no matter how ugly, has a place in some type of quilt! I think the person who designed this one was an alien on "V"!!

    I don't have a clue-but if I use it, it will have to either be small bits to get lost among better looking fabrics, or as Barking Rabbit said, use it for snake skin or turtle head/legs-I can't see myself EVER making a quilt with snakes-maybe someday a turtle or two, but with about 2 yards, it is bound to stay in my stash forever! I will probably make a point of using it someplace, now that it reared its ugly head, maybe for vine applique. It can't be that noticable as a vine!
