    Oh my, Melinda! What the heck? It's something else. (the first one)
    However, if I ended up with it, I would know just how to make it a swan. What a great challenge.

    Perhaps you were planning a southwestern theme quilt. The individual designs aren't bad, it's just crazy all together. I'm guilty for bringing my own ugly home too.

    Nexxus, I think the first one is uglier than the second.

    I like the second one better, I think I would have brought it home too! I think it needs a fussy cut or better yet maybe a kaleidoscope block.

    But I do have a fabric that will go well with the first choice. Very South West looking.

    This is so fun!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Tired to take a picture of my 'uglies' and they looked ever so much better in the picture than in person...the intensity of the color got all washed out in the picture. Made me think maybe I should just put them in the wash with lots of bleach and they'd be ok!!!

    Bleach -- interesting idea. It would probably take so much bleach to reduce the color that the fabric would become brittle. Ever had bleach make a hole in something? I have. You could try that stuff that removes color in preparation for dying fabric.

    ok so here is the list so far of members joining us. I also put beside it if I have received your fabric. The ending for signing up for this doesn't end until March 23rd and fabric doesn't have to be received by me until April 6th so please don't panic. Hopefully we can get some more members to join us. Would you guys like for me to take pictures of the ugly fabric that I have received so far or would you rather wait until after I send the fabric out to people. By the way I think I will have my kids pic the fabrics to be sent to whom.

    Not serious about trying the bleach! Although one time when the kids were really little I had a red, white and blue striped t-shirt that belonged to one of the boys get in a load of whites by mistake and it all but stripped the colors...turned out pale peach and light gray!

    So yesterday I received a package from Schertz, TX. Can I ask which member that is so I mark down that I received your fabric. I am also out of town until Monday so I may have received some packages today or tomorrow. I will try to post some of the fabrics I have received so far.

    I know I could figure something out for that one gotthebug! I am out here in the wild west afterall! No Saguaro (sp?) cactus, but plenty of the rest. My DD was just complaining that our dog had hauled in a cow skull even.
