    There are a lot of people who have 'ugly' fabric. I love it when members do the 'ugly fabric challenge'.

    I have gotten a couple in a box from a garage sale. It is amazing that the "winner" of the ugly fabric challenge manages to make a pretty quilt out of all the uglies.

    You've heard the story about "The Ugly Duckling", right. Same thing goes for fabric!

    Our guild did a challenge with every one purchasing the ugliest fabric they could find. My sister and I picked out the same fabric not knowing each other did it. Strange!!! However I won the fat qtrs and made a quilt. It turns out that it is my grandsons favorite quilt. LOL

    ugly is relative-
    what one person finds to be horribly ugly someone else will love- and make something spectacular out of.
    next ugly swap that comes along- look through the pictures- i bet you really like a couple that others just think is the most horrible piece of fabric they've ever seen!
    happens all the time-
    and i'm sure most of us have at least one fabric that they just think is so ugly---and can not think of a thing to do with it- and hate it so much they don't even think they could pass it on---but someone out there---likes it! :) and knows what to do with it.
