    I would use it; there's some people in my family who would think it was hilarious and others that wouldn't. And I think a tote or wall pangings would be great. Or even cut and put in small picture frames or those magnetic frames that come in 4"X6" sizes, would be cute on the frig. Of course, it's ahrd by looking at the sample just how big each is.

    it's okay i wouldn't buy it. it would be great for specific projects like totes and wall hangings but really how many ppl are going to be doing that? can't see it being a HUGE seller. Just my 2 cents though

    The statement is so true. My sister would love a quilt from it or a pillowcase.

    You could get the panel and then applique on t-shirts or anything else you wanted.... :D

    I love the blah blah fabric for backing. My GD is at the babbling stage so I tease her and tell her all you say is blah blah blah.....pretty soon she's going to be saying that to her mommy and daddy.

    I love that fabric. She is so funny and says what we have all thought at one time or another. My son also says "blah blah blah" all the time...part of a family joke, so that fabric is perfect.

    I love her. I can see a tote made of this fabric. As you get older you appreciate her more.

    The manufacturer says the Maxine fabrics will be shipping to stores in May. It's pretty common for fabrics to be up to a month late, though.

    One of my co-workers also is a lunch lady in an elementary school. She plans on making a vest out of the "blah blah" fabric, to wear in the cafeteria!

    It should be available in May; possibly June, if the maker is running late. Kaufman is usually pretty good about being on time.

    Great for those rice heating bags, Covers for hot water bottles. I think they'd make cute sewing room curtains and machine covers.

    Maxine is one of my favorite characters, she says what some other people think, but don't say; she is 'real', down to earth and a HOOT! I think this will be a hit! I collect cartoons or her and when I need a laugh, I get them all out and soon, I'm giggling...

    OMG!!! I would definetly buy that fabric even if I have to starve for a week or two. I just love Maxine and I would make a lap quilt and some wall hangings for some friends of mine. Well, since it won't be out until May/June I can start saving now so I can buy a bolt of a few of the fabrics.

    Maxine...depends on the person. I always thought she was funny until I took a class on Geriatrics in college. The professor used that comic as an example of "ageism", which is akin to racism. We make fun of the challenges of growing older in our society and by doing that, we become more immune to the insults and downgrading of people. Many older people start to feel invisible, and I think this sort of thing leads to that. For many people, this is probably overthinking a "funny" comic strip, but we can all think back to some of the old comics that portrayed African-American or Native Americans in a less than flattering light, with the intent of being "funny". If we saw them now, we'd be appalled.

    So, I won't be buying any Maxine...even though I chuckle when one is put in front of me...I still work hard to train my mind about the long-term effects of this sort of humor.
