    Ugly Fabric Challenge

    We were given various amounts of these "ugly" fabrics ranging from 1/2 yard to 1/8 yard. The challenge was to create "something" while only adding 1 other fabric. This is what I came up with.

    You did awesome work making those "ugly fabrics" as cute as can be in the teddy bear quilt. I would have had a really hard time.

    Just cute as can be I particularly like the binding for me that would have been the hardest to use in your grouping.
