Fugly Fabric Party!

Honestly, I've become terrible fabric hoarder.  I can't stop myself from picking up fabric if it is cheap...I justify it by telling myself that I can use them to make charity quilts.  While I have made a couple for Project Linus and I am in a charity bee, there is no way I would ever have enough time to ever make enough charity quilts to use up all of the fabrics I've accumulated.  As such, I have been considering doing some purging and it worked out perfectly when I read about this:  

Fugly Fabric Party

Here are my fuglies:
Can't tell you much about these except that they are pretty drab and I believe some are vintage.  On the off chance you might actually want these, please leave me a comment telling me so (please make sure that I have a way to contact you).  On the even more off chance there is more than one person who is interested (HA), I will draw a name randomly.  

Edit: For second chance to win, it would be great if you could become a follower and tell me you have done so...my blog is new and it would be nice to know I am not just talking to myself  :)

Since a few people have shown interest I will be doing a draw, on Feb 13 (my b-day)  :)

  1. if you cut something up small enough and combine it with the right fabrics.... Kind of my mantra. At least that is what I say to myself when I look at some of my fuglies.

  6. Every time I see a fabric, my mind starts turning--- I see it as patches in a pieced quilt pattern, or as pieces for applique... maybe even trim or ruffles on a little girl's dress... those "fuglies" are perfect for so many things!! The bottom 4 could work as blenders, I think--- or they'd be cute for Sunbonnet Sue's dress or bonnet... and the top piece (is it black--looks black on my monitor)-- would come in handy, as I'm collecting blacks for a Bouillabaisse quilt! Please add my name to the hat! Thank you !! :-)

  24. Gotta tell you -- I LOVE the black and white! I think the yellow background with the blue or grey has big possibilities....it is so funny that what we hate someone else loves, and vice versa. I have discovered that the REALLY bad fabric for quilting is the stuff that nobody loves and nobody hates....it just sort of sits there and is ignored.
