Fabric of the week - Queen Anne's Lace

What is it about this series of prints? Jane Sassaman's Prarie Gothic collection is everywhere you look and should therefore be totally not cool, but somehow it still holds my interest.

This particular print, Queen Anne's Lace, reminds me of the scene in Silence of the Lambs when you first see Buffalo Bill's basement moth breeding operation - kinda foreboding and ominous with a quiet flapping of wings making the hair on your arms stand on end.

Maybe that's the appeal? Usually quilting fabrics are described as 'pretty', 'modern' and 'bright', not creepy and dark and associated with serial killers. Who cares, I just love it. So far I have only made a little dress but have half a yard still to play with...
