    Once again, I'm confused by the fabric designers. This one is from a future group by Robert Kaufman, and it's called "A Day in the Life". I can't say I've ever seen a fabric with a toilet on it before. And the words you don't want to hear are: "I've missed again" and yes they are next to the toilet.

    I'm with you, why would anyone design a fabric such as this?

    I'm sure some super creative person will do a great project with this, but I'm at a loss as to what it might be.

    I think that fabric depicts my life! Granted, my little guy refuses to use the toilet yet, but I'm pretty sure that given a year, I'll be dealing with that too! Otherwise, yep, that looks like my place! Any coordinating fabrics?

    That is the one fabric that will never be found on my stash...take that back. Maybe to play a prank. I should have said, it will never be used on my quilts.

    Here are three coordinates. They all come in a black-and-white "sketch" colorway too. The third one also comes on pistachio green.

    Some of that fabric would work out great in the Funky Neighborhood swap. LOL However, I'm not sure I'd want fabric like that. The toilet's bad enough but did they have to put the puddle by it? There's some things that just don't need to be "out there". Reminds me of the Charmin commercials with the 'pieces left behind'---like anyone really wants to think about things like that or would bother checking.

    You know what?? It looks a LOT like the game Pictureka. DD has that game and we love to play it.

    My wacko sisters made an original pattern quilt called "Naughty Knickers" a couple of years ago. They'd have might have used some of this in that, they used some pretty weird stuff. It's won several ribbons though.

    Wow. If people are selling manufacturers on these fabric lines, I think I really need to get into the designing biz. I for sure couldn't do worse! Sorry, but those are terrible.

    I don't suppose this makes anyone feel better, but I'll try. Looks like this is a snippet from the corner of the aqua one, and I think the words are "I'm a big boy now."

    Is this called hope? Light at the end of the tunnel for all the toilet-training moms out there?

    I'm with you Quilting granny.. and I'm thinking I'd love to make a few small quilts for my sister and her DDIL who has two small boys.. I think they're a hoot.. and I would buy them. Yes.. I have a sick sense of humor.. but those certainly depict every day life.. warts and all!!

    Can't help it - first thing I thought was are we back in the 40's? Looks to be like they think women stay home and cook and clean (especially pee)! I agree with Rapture Ready - Dust Rags!

    Oh come on now people , someone is out there just waiting for this fabric to finish that special project. (grin)

    A wall hanging for the bathroom....just over the toilet, especially one that the males in the family use. It doesn't have to be just little boys that would benefit from the reminder....(grin).

    I like it. I have seen fabric that has male body parts on it. So this is no big deal as far as I am concerned. Then again I am the "ugly fabric queen" so maybe my opinion is not really very valuable.

    If it were a Hallmark card, I'd think of someone to send it too, but as a fabric, it isn't anything I'd sew with. Go figure.

    This is what I'd use to clean the toilet with.

    You can tell I raised all girls! I saw the puddle by the toilet and thought, 'oh, it's leaking!' Groan......Artists who read this-don't take offense-but some things that are called art totally confuse me. This design is one of those are-you-kidding-me? I'm sure someone with a quirky sense of humor is going to turn it into something great!
