Fugly Fabric

I am sure you all know fugly fabric, we all have some from time to time huh.. yeh come on own up, I know you all have some!
well, when I was sorting through some of my own personal stash, and then cleaning out the shelves in the shop .... to make room for new arrivals, ... and my they are coming in thick and fast at the moment.. anyway... when I was cleaning and sorting, and looking at some of the end of roll fabrics, I thought to myself, as I often do...
what shall I do with these, they don't really belong anywhere, with anything else... and not enough to do too much with
and what on earth can I put with them  or do with them.. after all they don't look much like this do they??
so I cut and pieced, and stitched.
and this is what I came up with
any fabric is glorious if you cut it up small enough... even fugly fabric...
It is off to the quilty machine now...

Shiree, it turned out beautiful and I had heard the saying "If it is still ugly, cut it again"

Elyte said...

So the rumours are true - ugly can become beautiful. Well done.

That is amazing! I am still chuckling over the fugly fabric. I definitely got a lot of that. Tastes change over time, and I find that the fabric I bought just a few years ago I am wondering "what the heck was I thinking?"

I had a quilting friend who told me that she included one fugly in every quilt she made, to get rid of it. But to her surprise she discovered that the ugly turned beautiful once cut up and distributed around the quilt.
