It is spring time here, hard to sew when the weather is so beautiful outside! I found some fat Quarters to go with the Ugly fabric I got. Now to just sit down and di it! I am working on UFP this week, as well as a few orders.
I have a cute pinwheel project for our Charity quilt club, so it should be a busy time, even if I would rather be outside in the yard.

Happy sewing ladies

That is a really neat cute piece of work....Cubs on Acid. I think you should show the quilt, I bet everyone would be surprised and very proud! If I am wrong, you are gonna be in TROUBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please note I am talking about the quilt in # 171

I haven't had a chance to sew my ugly yet, but it's coming up to the top of the list. As soon as I finish a couple swap blocks and a t-shirt quilt for graduation gift next month.

Thank you Foxflower recieved the squisy package today....the extra hst's will not go to waste either. I will hand sew the binding while Im sitting around at the Dr.s office all day Friday. Then I will have to tackle making a hanging sleeve for it to go on the wall. That will be a new task for me. So I'll have to watch some tutorials.. Thank you again for the extra fabric to help complete my ugly Pie project

Mustard and white. I have over 2/3 yard. It's a vintage Peter Pan fabric.

This is rust and is a little bigger than a fat 1/3.
I haven't joined this swap...sorry, I'm a little over myhead with projects at the moment...but I just want to say that I really LIKE these two fabrics! I would actually buy these for my stash, if I had the opportunity. I guess that "UGLY" is in the eye of the beholder. Good luck with this swap...it looks like a lot of fun!

oz-.jpgoz-background.jpghere is the top of my quilt made from the ugly fabric I received. The ugly fabric used for outer borders reminded my daughter of tornadoes so I found the pictures of the OZ characters. The Yellow sashings represent the Yellow Brick Road. The second picture is a closeup of Toto with the backing material alongside. In Munchkin land, poppies can be blue. Will post again once I figure out how I will be quilting.
