    I just sent Patrice some that looks like one of my chickens had diarrhea and it splattered on a pumpkin!!!
    She's going to make a quilt from ugly fabric and it will hopefully be not so ugly! Anyway if you have a piece of something you think is UGLY lets see what she can do with it.

    Well Kathy, I was enjoying my snack. :evil: :lol:

    I sent mine to her already. She actually liked one of them! LOL Ah well, one man's trash is another man's treasure. But yours sounds like something that should be IN the trash! ROFL I hope she gets lots of these uglies.

    Kathy, I hope the pumpkin it splattered on was rotten bc I like the orange kind.
    I had a piece of green fabric with horseshoes on it that I hated. I went to a rodeo, now I want to make something from it to remind me of the rodeo.

    Mine is in the mail too....when my hubby asked me what it was for and I told him...he said he didn't think it was that ugly! LOL Well, I did! I've had it for about 5 years and could never find a place to use it! Can't wait to see what she does with all this "ugly" fabric!!

    Sure, a little poop and punkin goo and you run. Ladies, does it come close to demented Elvises or art deco jungle cat chasing goat and goose/swan running away? I have GOT to see this quilt when its-'s done.

    Either it will be stunning, or one of those “so ugly, it’s kinda cute” surprises

    I almost sent her my Elvis FQ but then I remembered my sister wanted me to make her something out of it! LOL

    This kind of reminds me of the challenges Alex Anderson use to have on her show...

    See Patrice? I warned you! Elvis sneaks out at night to party. You need to cut him up to stop him!

    I just have to ask, Kathy, forgive me. Did you PAY for this ugly sounding fabric or did someone hate you enough to gift it to you??? :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Oh Sharon, the only one who would play a mean trick like that would be I think it must have come in a bundle of batiks because there were 3 really ugly pieces but they are bigger than a fat so they must have disguised them with some pretty ones! I had a piece of corduroy that looked like it had been used for a grease rag!

    This could be a fun Round Robin. Send someone who wants to play a piece of ugly fabric to start a quilt with, send to the next person on the want to list for the next step and so on until it is done.

    I would be interested in seeing a "before" picture once you gather up all your ugly contestants. That way, when they are put together, we can tell how far you've had to stretch your imagination. Any patterns in mind yet, or are you still learning to control your gag reflex?

    my mailbox was looking pretty sick to its stomach when i got home yesterday. sure enough, it had ralphed all over my son when he checked the mail. apparently, kathy shops with her eyes closed. :lol:

    she claims she can't remember why she bought them, but i noticed one had been cut into, so she must have at least one really embarrassing block or top squirreled away in secret somewhere. :lol:

    Patrice, is it too late for me to add my ugly fabric to your project? If not, let me know your address and I will gladly send some.

    Kathy, thank you for commenting on my avatar! I wish I made this quilt!!! Whenever I surf the net and find a picture of a quilt I want to try and make (or one like it!) I save the picture and file it under "Quilts I want to make" folder. Of course, I have lots of pictures in that folder! :wink: :wink: I will try and post the picture of that quilt here so you can see the whole thing and be inspired!

    Patty
