I ran across this ugly fabric party over at Charm About You
on Tuesday night and was inspired to go see what I could dig up out of my own already too large stash. I discovered that I really love all my fabric and can see many possibilities. Yes, there is some that I bought for a particular purpose that turned out to be not as perfect as I had hoped. There are some pieces that are not 'rock star' focus fabric but that will work admirably in a supporting roll, or in a backing... there just aren't that many that I have purchased that I look at and think... WHAT was I thinking? I do have a nice 32"x34"panel that I will probably not use in the foreseeable future. I bought it as a possible charity baby quilt but it really has more wall hanging potential. The image is cute, but not super sharp and the rest are all lovely colors and supporting patterns. It would be a great thing to practice some free motion quilting on... not too big, lots of places to play. Let me know if you are interested. It even has a label all ready for it printed on the fabric. The photo only shows part of it, the border is complete all the way around.
|For some reason this photo won't post upright, sorry.|
I have this piece a shy yard by 42" that was sent to me along with an online order. I did wash it but can't imagine using it for anything.
Then I realized I had only looked in the filing cabinet and the shelves in the closet... what about that fabric bin over in the corner? The bin of shame... Well, that is a whole other story. There are fabrics in there I am embarrassed to say that I own... awful calicoes that I bought before I really knew how to quilt. Stuff that wasn't really worth posting photos off even. I have one really atrocious kelly green one that has crows dressed in overalls and straw hats... ugh. So I do have some uglies... REALLY uglies, but these would have to be cut into REALLY tiny pieces for me to want to see them in a quilt, anyone's quilt!
If anyone is interested in the panel or the blue with birds leave me a comment and I will pick a random comment by the 18th of February, next Saturday. Thanks for stopping by.
I would love to be put into your drawing. And the really ugly stuff make great lap quilts for the car. If its ugly enough no one will ever want to remove it from the car. Any way if I win throw something terrible in and I'll make something out of it. New to quilting so not smart enough yet to know any better. Oh and I am now a follower.ReplyDelete

I really like the blue birds, they'd go very well in my attic windows quilt. Thanks for the chance!ReplyDelete
The owls are great! My niece has a blog "Owls in the Moss" and although I dont' see any moss in the sky - these owls could fly into a project and land over at her home. Send them on down here to the south for a bit of rest. They look tired.ReplyDelete
