The Good, The Bad and The Fugly

Well, if you haven't heard ...Lucy is having a rather unattractive party!!!  In fact, it is downright FUGLY!!!!

The idea is simple....go through your stash and find fabric you wonder why you purchased.  It just isn't you....it doesn't work with anything....you are sure you will never use it.....
So get rid of it....someone will love it {maybe}
Post about it, link up and shake that ugly fugly fabric from your stash!!!


Charm About You

Here is my contribution to the cause.  I hate to say it is Fugly because it is someone's work and actually it is not hideous.  I just know I won't use it.  I have had it for several years and haven't even been tempted to cut into it even once.


This is Targets by Kaffe Fasset....there is a full yard.
And just to add a little sweetness to the pot....I am throwing in a charm pack of Etchings by 3 Sisters for Moda.

  
There are some very nice prints in this collection...

  
even some text.....


There will be two opportunities to win this giveaway.

1.  leave a comment and tell me your all time favorite fabric line or favorite designer
 2.  leave another comment and tell me that you are a follower of Molly Flanders blog for a second chance to win

I will randomly choose a winner on Monday Feb 13th. at 8:00 am.  Please make sure I have your email....if you are a No-Reply Blogger I will need your email address within the comment.

So good luck and check out all the other Fugly going on at Lucy's :)

  3. I don't have a favorite fabric or designer. I like so many different fabrics, I am addicted to fabric. That's what got me into the Fugly rut I am in. Would love to win the etchings, tho.

  5. All time favorite? That is hard because I am constantly torn between loving Civil War prints and modern prints. CW would be Judie Rothermel and modern would be Kaffe.

  24. If I tell you that Target fabric is a great pattern for binding you wont want to give it away... And Etchings is the coolest range!! I've been strong in my resistance but if I was to win it, oohh happy me!! Okay you know the answer to the question, I'm the biggest Sis Boom fan!! It would be hard to pick a very favourite though I do love her Nuala pattern from her OOP Girlfriends range.

    ReplyDelete
  122. what happens if I don't have an all time favourite? I wonder if you can have an all time favourite when you still have more than 40 years until retirement ahead of you .. seems like an awfull lot of time to stick to one. I love polka dots, green polka dots - is there a line with them?
    Feel free to "kick" me out of the drawing for not being able to decide on an all time favourite yet ...

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  128. Lol! I actually love that fabric or anything by Kaffe for that matter. But I agree that I find it hard to quilt with his fabrics. I like them more for clothes or pillows.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I LOVE Anna Maria Horner, especially her loulouthi flannel and velveteen. Yummm!
