Oh, the Fugliness of It All- a Giveaway!

Lucy At Charm About You is hosting the Fugly Fabric Party.  You know how rescue groups take unwanted pets and find new, loving homes for them?  Yeah, it's basically like that, but for fabric!  All of the unloved fabrics of the world deserve a new home where they can be used, right?

So, I'm having a giveaway with my contributions to the Fugly Fabric Party!  First up is a set of 24 fat quarters.  They're all quilt shop quality fabrics.  I ordered a grab bag set of a ton of FQ's one time, and actually used most of them, but these just aren't my style.  To be fair, some of them aren't truly hideous, but they just don't quite fit with the kinds of quilts I make.


Now, my second offering, I knowingly purchased.  Perhaps you remember my brother in law's Outdoorsman's Quilt?  Well, I purchased the camouflage fabric with my calculations for regular 44 inch fabric.  Well, that fabric was 57 inch fabric, so I had a LOT of leftovers.  It's licensed Mossy Oak camouflage, and was not cheap.  I have three big pieces that I'm guessing total 2-3 yards.  I just can't fathom another use for this fabric, since this quilt was so different from what I usually sew.


So, what do you need to do to win one of them?  Easy!  Just leave me a comment letting me know which one you would like.  Next Saturday, on 8/31, I'll randomly choose numbers to pick the winners!  Followers get a second chance to win.  Just be sure to leave a second comment to let me know how you're following!

Oh, and one other thing- be sure to leave your email address if you're a no-reply blogger so that I can contact you.  Wordpressers- you also show up as no-reply to us Blogger users (I hate that), so leave your email address too!

Sadly, I can't ship outside of the US.  

I hope this neglected fabric can find a home where it will be used and loved!  Check out Lucy's Fugly Fabric Party for other fabric rescues out there!

  26. I didn't see any fugly fat quarters. I would love to win them. I also have some mossy oak camo that is left over from a baby quilt I made for a friend. I've been told that the baby's room is camo and Univ of Tenn. Sounds more like a man cave.

  61. Although I really like some of those FQs in the first picture, I'd have to go for the Mossy Oak collection. I recently made a case for my husband's binoculars and have since had a couple of requests to have others done up before hunting season starts. This bundle would be perfect :) Thanks!
