    Hey, these were expensive quilt shop fabrics from a couple of years ago. I recognize Chocolate Lolipop and some others that I have/had. I think just about everything by Kaffe Fasset and Brandon Mably are UGLY.

    When I first read about this challenge...
    I didn't hesitate as to which fabric I'd just HAVE to enter.

    My Grandmother, God love her, had given me her collection of fabric about a year ago.

    This was one of the "gems" that I found.
    She passed away in December.
    I kind of regret not having asked her what she had in mind
    when she purchased six (yes, SIX) yards of this beauty.

    For scale, I've placed my 8" scissors on the fabric.

    It reminds me of something that would have been a hit in the Miami Vice era..
    just need a few pastel tank tops and white linen jackets.

    But those VooD ladies, what's that phrase.. "e gads" :)
    I have laughed until I am crying, both at the uglies and the commentary.
    Definitely the Voodoo ladies, but they would scare the bird droppings right out of a person! :mrgreen:

    I like the cars but the rest of it is ugly. I wonder if they can be fussy cut.

    Elvis is such an exceptional fabric that it deserves to be the central focus of the entire work of art. Anyone that has an opportunity to work with Elvis should consider themself honored.

    The print is horrible enough - but I can't get past the vastness of the pastels!
    (For me, the peach puts it over the edge!)
    I've taken a couple of yards have cut a four patch stack n' whack with the thinking that maybe it would improve... wrong.

    However, it was my DMIL's idea.
    I've threatened to give it to her! :thumbup:

    "Central" is a good idea ... as in "batting" :)

    It looks to me like this is going to be another one of those contests that is hard to choose the worst one.

    Alrighty then, this is a really tough call for me trying to pick a single entry, but - I think it's time I throw my hat into the ring here... while although this is not the only classifiable "ugliest fabric" I have hidden in my stash, I think it deserves the title for purposes of this challenge since we are limited to all cotton fabrics:

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    The thought of all these fabrics in one quilt is making my brain hurt.

    Seamstress I find that fabric funny, not ugly. It would look great as pot holders.

    I dissagree. It would make ugly potholders.

    I'm hoping to find my entry this weekend. I think I may have hidden it at my mom's still though. May have to pay her a visit and get that back. She doesn't like it either so I'm sure she'd be glad to get rid of it.

    This is a tough campaign - I hope we can count on your vote in the end. It pains me to see so much support for the Betty Boop wannabe, you know the one they are calling Voodoo Lady. I can't help but wonder how many Betty Boop supporters need to have their bifocals adjusted.

    My camera isn't doing the colors justice on this one with the flash. I really should post a video of this fabric, LOL. Nah, I think I'd have to pass... I personally couldn't have potholders that looked like this.

    Mix it with some of Ty Penningtons, it will make a cute purse.

    Oh Chasing Hawk! This reminds me of those cloth calendars I use to see in kitchens. Yep, it's ugly, but interesting.

    Incoming2me, this looks like a shirt senior men in Florida would wear with a pair of pink pants. Only Don Johnson could pull this off and look goooooooood. Loved Miami Vice!
