Ugly giveaway



This week's giveaway is simply a piece of fabric - this is one of those "what was I thinking" fabrics - as in, what was I thinking when I bought it? - I used a piece of it recently for a project where it wasn't going to show (it was the back of a piece of a bag I was quilting, but as the bag would have lining eventually, this wouldn't be visible, so I felt I could use it.



Anyway, there won't be that many more projects in my life which need non-visible fabrics, and frankly, if there are, I still have a few other things I no longer like, so I am offering this up to someone who can use it - perhaps for a backing for a charity quilt or something? Or who knows, you might have very different taste from me and really like it - whatever works! There is just under 2 yards of it, at full width of fabric (approx 44 inches). If you are interesting in being in the draw, as usual you should simply leave a comment on this post before Sunday.

I can always find ways to disguize "ugly fabric"!

It's not that bad, Kate. I never say no to fabric! (as you know...)

I actually like it, but I like pink/mauve colors-now if it was bright red then maybe I wouldn't be interested, thanks for the drawing!

Librarian Lee said...

It's cute! Isn't that funny how one day you like something and the next you're like what was I thinking!?! I do that a lot!

Betty Donahue said...

Backing material always comes in handy or some little girl might like it in a charity quilt.

I love that fabric, for some it is ugly but to me it's lovely. It reminds me somehow of the Quilt-Pink Auction.
Many greetings from Germany

"UGLY" means different things to different people. I've seen some ugly babies, but their parents thought they were beautiful! I love this fabric - thanks for offering to share!

Starry Night Hollow said...

I love it! I'm typically one to pick the bright bold fabrics...that fabric doesn't want to be invisible!

gwen said...

If it is ugly cut it small. If it is still ugly cut it smaller! I love using esthetic challenged fabrics in my quilts so I would be happy to receive that one piece.
For Jovita, I can recommend the book Threadplay with Libby Lehman: not many patterns but a lot of tips. The other tip I can give is practice, practice and more practice! Take care.
