    This thread kind of sprang from another. Post a picture of your ugliest fabric here. Everyone will vote and the winner will receive one yard of fabric.

    Edit: DreamXer did a wonderful job getting all the photos together! Here's the link to look at all the fabrics. Just post your vote on this thread.

    Sewnsewer, Fabric #2 is great! I'd cut out the wording between the blocks, put in a colorful sash, and call it a baby quilt ready for a gifting! I can't wait to post my uglys. . .

    Here is my ugly fabric made into a small quilt. The fabric came to me as a fat quarters set so at least the colours match!

    I finished binding this quilt on the weekend at a women's retreat. The women agreed with me that not only is the fabric ugly but it doesn't feel nice to touch. I took a better picture of the quilt.

    I have been reading this message board for quite a while and thought about joining but never did. The ugly quilt contest was something I couldn't resist. A few years ago our quilt guild held an ugly fabric contest where everyone brought in a piece of their ugliest fabric. Then members voted on whose was the ugliest. That person won all the fabrics and had to make a quilt out of them. I won and here is the quilt I made. The only fabric I added was the background for the stars.

    Sorry quiltadict, but I have one much uglier than yours. Can't wait until I get home to my own computer to show you. I actually like the stars.

    Quiltaddict,

    Those fabrics may be ugly by themselves but have been put together to make a very nice quilt... that happens so often. I'll have to look for my ugly material too.

    Quiltaddict, some of those fabrics truly are ugly but you've done a fabulous job of putting them together into a lovely quilt! Great job...was it difficult to work on? I find it really tough to work on something I don't like.

    I don't think I have any fabric worthy enough to be entered in this contest, but I'll do some stash diving to make sure. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with!

    Okay these don't seem ugly? Different, sure... But ugly? I like the blue and of course the Madagascar fabric would be a great kids quilt. I'll get my ugly fabric out and post it! :D

    you can fix this ugly- fussy cut the flowers and fish, etc. and make it into different quilts. Viola! Pretty fabric!

    I'll dig out my ugly quilt when I go home- it's still languishing- waiting for the inspiration that will take it from an ugly duckling into a swan.

    one thing I do notice is sometimes ugly fabric makes a pretty qulit after all...I happen to like the stars quilt and think it looks rather pretty so maybe there is hope for the ugly fish pattern...haha...hard to believe I said that but I might just try it someday...I held onto this ugly because just like pictures I can't bring myself to throw out fabric it goes against my whole being...lol

    I don't think it is ugly either, I think the quilt is pretty.

    This is really harder than I expected! I have a whole tote full of YUKs but going through them I kept finding some small redeeming quality in them, go figure! Anyway this is what I came up with.

    I liked the first two, especially the Madagascar one. It will make a cute kids quilt.

    I also am going to have to go thru my fabric stash and see what I have. I know I have some nasty things that have accumulated!

    I'm in!

    This fabric was purchased by my husband. I sent him to the store to buy "tropical botanical prints" and that's what he same home with. When he found out what I wanted the photo for he tried to be offended, but when we were looking at it he said "it's really ugly...

    So for your viewing punishment, jk!
