    My effort at an ugly fabric challenge

    The fabric wasn't really ugly, but it was a difficult one to work with. I sat and looked at it for a while. Squinted my eyes and found I saw horses everywhere. hmmm.... why not? Not sure what to call it. It is kinda alien and the horses are equine-like but not necessarily horses.

    What cool use of that fabric ... Only since you mentioned it, I can see the horses! Because the mountains look like pyramids, I would call it "When Isis Created the Horse". Isis is the Egyptian goddess of nature and magic ...

    I love that fabric, abstracts always appeal to me. Don't think I would have seen horses if you hadn't mentioned them. Great response to difficult challenge. Who is the maker of that fabric, I think my stash is calling for some of it.

    Impressive - my imagination wouldn't have taken me there, but I do think it's a terrific answer to the challenge. Good luck if there are prizes!
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    I don't see any "ugly". Looks great!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    thanks for all the nice comments... I was a little afraid that it might not be good enough to submit for the challenge, but I sent the photo in tonight.

    isn't it funny how we see things differently. i have used this fabric as a border on an asian fabric with koi. all i saw was the perfect color and looked like fish scales.

    you have used it perfectly.

    I love the uniqueness. The 'horses' do jump out at you, don't they!
