    I don't have the guts to cut this up. Don't know what I should do with it.

    How about part of a pieced backing? It looks like a fun fabric. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    You could use it as a border on a Southwest quilt.

    Oooo, such vibrant colors! You could stay with a SW theme, pieced border, etc or depending on how you cut and pieced it could look kind of like dahlias. Whatever you did would be striking. How fun!

    How about cutting it into long strips - along the edges of the chilies, and use it as a border around a large center block? or cut across the grassy part , and alternate those long blocks with green ones of the same size?

    I was just in Albuquerque a few weeks ago and picked up a couple of FQ's of different chili pepper fabric. Frankly, I won't use them for anything, so if you need some coordinates, let me know. They're your's for the asking.

    It's awful (only my opinion, sorry) but would be wonderful for a guild challenge as in "Now what do I do with this?" or maybe the ugly fabric challenge.
