    Sorry I have been having some issues with my youngest child so I haven't been around. I will do a group picture of them and then get them in the mail. I know that I am getting two more in the mail so as soon as those get here then I will get them back out into the mail to all you ladies. I really think this will be fun

    Wow that is so sweet, would your Mom like some fabric that is not Ugly as a thank you? Now that I said that I wonder what she would like! I know a lot of the fabric I like my daughter thinks is ugly and some of her skulls and cross bones, well i don't care for it ( the one with the little pink bow is kinda cute though)

    Ok I sent out everyone's envelopes today. If you don't receive one by April 13th please notify me. I was unable to take pictures of all the uglies. We have been having a horrible time with my youngest son so I apologize. Thanks for all the wonderful uglies everyone.

    Thanks Melinda. So sorry to hear about all the stress caused by your son. I will be sure to let you know when my new ugly fabric arrives, and I will also take a picture to share with the group.

    I love it too! I think it would make a great cosmetic bag! What do you see yourself using it for?

    My ugly isn't that ugly, either. I have several scraps that will go well with it. After the holiday and things settle down ....

    I think I better pick up my mail tomorrow. The yellow "ugly" definitely has potential.

    Jenniky that came from me. Can't wait to see what you do with it. Need some coordinating fabric? Fabric.com accidently sent me something that goes with it really well instead of what I ordered. I can pass it on to you.....

    I'm back! We had to change ISP's. AT&T wouldn't fix my internet (bad modem), so we changed companies.

    Jenniky -- I must say ... Eeeew! LOL! But with the right coordinating fabrics, I bet it would look great.

    Who got the blue and red plaid-looking Moda fabric I sent? I'm anxious to see what you thought of it, and what you do with it. (Personally, I thought it was horrible! LOL!)

    I bought some coordinating fabric for my "ugly" last night. Pic below. I still think it's quite pretty! I'll be making a small quilt with it. Hopefully I can start on it next week. No idea yet as to the pattern I'll use.

    Moonrise.....what a great stack! That is going to look really neat. I got that wonderful moda blue and red. When I opened the envelope I was shocked.....it's so pretty! I definitely got the better end of this trade.....poor jennicky.

    Jennicky, I'll try to take a pic of the coordinating print that I got after I sent that rusty ugly in so you can see if you want it.

    So, everybody, here is the awesome fabric that doesn't suit moonrise's taste......

    Here's my stack of possible coordinates, which may/will change depending on what pattern I choose.

    I'm still (gasp) in shock that I received a fabric I like so much. Have a happy Easter everyone!

    Foxflower, I think you got the ugliest one so far that's been posted. Good luck!

    That is too funny ladybug! Good thing I like plaids. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. I have so many projects on my table I don't know when I'll actually get started on this other than choosing coordinates. I'm still going to browse through patterns for inspiration though.

    Glad you like it, Foxflower! LOL! Looks like a nice selection of coordinating fabrics.

    I just told DH (Robert - he's a member here too) what we were doing, and how it worked. He got interested, so now we're sitting here working on the quilt. He picked the pattern, and I finalized the fabric choices. We'll see how it turns out!

    (Isn't he a cutie patootie??? )

    Ta-Da!!! The pattern is "Octagon and Twist" from Quilter's Cache. We're tickled pink with it!

    P.S. Here's a link to the pattern. It's rated 3 out of 3 stars on the difficulty, but it wasn't hard at ALL. There's one seam where you have to "fold" the fabric in order to sew it, but it's simple. Not sure why they rated it as being difficult. I'll definitely be making this pattern again!

    Thanks! We got a routine going, and it went pretty quickly. It's really just nine 12-1/2" blocks sewn together, with borders added.

    We knew at least one person would take their fabric and turn it into a beauty! Excellent job Moonrise! Your quilt is fabulous! You and hubby make a great team.
