I only think I own my stash

In reality, it’s all Felicity’s. She knows it too.  Just look at her: I open up my red fabric box for just a minute, and what does she do?  Come and sit on it!  And refuse to move! You may recognise the top fabric as the lining for the nougat corset. What do you think of the bottom fabric?  I’m torn about it.  It’s a reproduction of an early-mid 19th century cotton from the International Quilt Study Centre & Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska.  I found it on sale here in NZ and snapped up 6ish metres before realising that it’s actually kinda hideous and repulsive.  But also appealing at the same time. So what do you think about a tomato red with mustard and black print?  And what on earth should I do with it?
