    Ugly Fabric Challenge

    My guild did an ugly fabric challenge with the green fabric. I won first place! There were ten entries and it was fun to see what everyone did with the 15" (?) square we started out with. Two people made complete quilts and there were also two murals that were really cute! The only requirement was that the completed projected had to use the fabric and measure at least 24 inches.

    When I saw the title I expected to see something entirely different - I really like your design and colors. Very nicely done!

    Definitely not ugly! Very nice quilt and I hope you enjoy your quilt. Perhaps it is true that beauty (or ugly) is in the eyes of the quilt maker. Challenges are fun for that reason.

    Where's the ugly? Although I can't see the details of that green fabric, I think I might actually like it . What you did with it is definitely beautiful!

    The green fabric is ugly, I'm not a fan of green anyway! But, what you made with it is truly delicious! I love the flower in the middle, too cute. Well done.

    Well done. It gives us all hope for those "ugly" scraps we may have in our stash!

    I am assuming the "ugly" fabric is the green??? I would buy it on purpose. Either way ugly fabric or not your quilt is stunning.

    I don't think it's very ugly (the fabric), could you post a picture of just the green fabric so we can see how it started out? You've made something really pretty from it.

    I thought it was for ugly fabric. I think it's so pretty. great job.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    From where I'm sitting, the green doesn't look ugly at all. I give credit to you for mixing it with the blue set on white. It looks really good
