    The directions to my quilt group were that we had to use the white and the "ugliest fabric in my stash" to make a block. Be honest now, do you think I have a chance to win with my fabric and/or my block? :lol:

    I've never heard of any batiks being considered ugly. Beautiful combination, I just don't see any ugly fabric

    Great quilt block ... unique and looks nice and crisp with the white and contrast with the print.

    Sorry as for me, it's not a winner, as I really like that batik!! :)

    Good Luck, and do hope you win!

    No ugly fabric there - batiks are just too pretty to be ugly.

    Nope! You are sure to be a loser. Have you ever looked at the ugliest fabric contests on here? There is some shockingly ugly fabric in the world. I don't love your fabric, but there is some out there that is so-o-o-o much worse.

    Sorry, I vote for ugly. I don't like batik.

    It's a pretty block, like the pattern, but the batik kills it for me.

    I love your block, and combination. I would either thread paint, or really embellish the white fabric. I see gaudy sequins and thread painted circles to compliment the batiks. What a cool challenge. There are some really ugly fabrics out there. ...as well as some unbelievably gorgeous prints- what a neet hobby:quilting!!!

    Yes, I "created" this block in about 5 minutes, but I do see possibilities that more of them could create.
