An Ugly Duckling Challenge

Ever had some UGLY fabric that you wanted to rid yourself of?  Well, Ann in the Sunshine Yahoo Group did and she issued a challenge.  She'd send us a fat quarter of an ugly fabric, we'd make them into pretty blocks and then she'd make quilts for Sunshine.  These are the fabrics and I asked for one of each.
I've used up the first fabric in these blocks:
Not so bad after all...

And then for the real ugly

Now I wouldn't call that ugly fabric. Lovely use of blocks.

Those ARE lovely... but I must say i think the blue is more ugly !!!! (that's what I got, lol). Great work!

Claire said...

Great blocks. I especially like the lower right--you barely see the ugly. The orange does the trick!

Jody said...

Proof that the smaller you cut it, the less ugly it is!! Great job!

and suddenly, no longer ugly. Mind you, I didn't think they were in the first place.

I love your blocks! You did a great job with some questionable fabric - you know, if you cut it small enough, it's no longer ugly!! Whoop whoop!!

You've done a great job with those uglies! It's fun to see what can be done with the unloved fabrics :)

PattiLou - You sure got a lot of blocks out of that fabric, and I don't think of them as "ugly"! I took both fabrics too & will have to start them soon.
