    Hey Darlene loves Choclate___
    Is your fabric a stripe? If it is that was my contribution. I would love to see what you do with it. I have more of it and have not been able to come up with an idea for it. Someone on board is making squares with stripes, I may try that later in the Summer. To much going on now.

    OK, quilters, here is my quilt top made with the 'ugly' I received - brown wavy stripes. I had two alphabet fabrics that had all the right colors, plus some some small pieces of blue.

    The size is 40 x 42.

    Very pretty, I have some of the alphabet fabric, but no cute blocks! I made an Apron for my Granddaughter for pre-school out of the alphabet fabric. I like what you have done with your "ugly" great match!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Ladies, Oh my goodness you all are so very skilled. Also those "sizes" were just suggestions but honestly you ladies can make anything with your "uglies". If you haven't recieved yours please let me know.

    Hi Marytoddliz,
    Does your granddaughter need a nap quilt to match her apron? I have no idea what to do with it!

    I have received mine and I love it. It is a nice vintage stripe with rose colored flowers and a green stripe. I think I have enough in my stash to work with. It will take me a little longer than some of you all. WOW you guys are really on it! I have work to deal with and yardwork, you know the drill. I'll post when I get something finished.

    Hi Ladies - I've been totally enjoying lurking and looking at all the lovely quilts you've made from these ugly fabrics! Last year, I participated in a similar swap/challenge on this board - we posted pictures of our uglies, then voted on the ugliest. The winner then received ALL the uglies and had to make a quilt. Guess who won?? (Yep, me.) If you didn't see the quilt when I posted it last year, here it is again...you can make lemonade from lemons! Great jobs to you all!

    Debka,
    That quilt really came together nicely. It is cool! I remember the voodoo girl fabric, and the green Elvis from the board last year. Thanks for hanging out with us!

    Well, we must be the queens of ugly fabric, since no one has posted a picture of the pieces we sent

    There haven't been any posts for a few days. Is everyone busy? I would love to know who got my "ugly" and what they plan to do with it. I have the main part of a baby size quilt done with mine. Just need to organize the borders and put them on. I'll post pictures when I am finished.

    OMG -- that's the fabric I sent. My son-in-law, a true Cubs fan, would be devastated if he saw that picture -- especially since the fabric came from his mother!!! Anyway, I really like the results. Very contemporary. Great job! You have far more imagination that I ever could have!!!

    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.

    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
