I ended up at one of these stores recently and had to take some picture of fabrics that made me say "Um what?" As in, how did these fabrics get made? Who thought "This is a great fabric! I'm sure there are so many great projects that people will want to make with this!"
|This is the exterior of one of the locations. It is not like it gives any indication as to what is inside!|
|Not a lot of donkeys around here. And why do the children look deformed?|
Exhibit B: This terrifying frog watching you from this bolt while wearing his chef hat. Who is buying this fabric?? For what purpose? Maybe you are looking for fabric with a french chef frog. But a terrifying one like this guy? *shudder*
|I think this frog has been into the wine.|
Exhibit C: Religious fabric with what I presume is the Virgin Mary. What is getting made with this fabric? Is there a religious grandma somewhere who really likes the Blessed Mother to be on her quilts? And in these colours? I don't get it.
|These are huge, too. So, giant Virgin Marys. For some reason.|
|Couldn't they make this fabric just slightly more American?|
|When, WHEN is this a good colour combination? No. Just no.|
|Must be season one if Tasha Yarr is there.|
|Those Star Wars fabrics are for an upcoming quilt for a kid, and those typewriters were calling me. That Robert Kaufman fabric is too cute and was pretty darn cheap.|
So, explain to me. How do some of these fabrics get made? When would they ever look good?
P.S. Here are some bonus fabrics that I simply cannot imagine in anything attractive, courtesy of the Sale section of a LQS.
|Um, for your farmer friend?|
|For people who really, really like broccoli?|
