Dare To Be Ugly!

22 ladies signed on for a challenge I hosted on the HGTV Quilting and Needlework Forum. It was the 1st Annual Dare To Be Ugly Challenge! I purchased one of the ugliest fabrics I could find and the contestants each received 1/2 yard to make any project they chose with it. They had to use 90% of the fabric and had the freedom to incorporate any other fabrics they chose to in the making of their project.

These ladies have really come up with some very interesting creations! Enjoy the picture show!

This was the fabric!

These are the projects completed with the fabric!

Wow, those are awesome! I do admire folks with so much creativity.

I do hope you'll be able to make those chalk boards for your 2 grandchildren. Thanks for stopping by my place. I'm your newest blog follower. :0)

Love your new background. What amazing creations...the fabric did not look ugly in any of them. I really like both of the bags that were created.

I am completely amazed by their creativity. I think this would be a great competition for a quilt camp or TV show. I love the cat bed and the black cat doll. The quilt with the squares is beautiful (a la log cabin). The one with the flying geese and scrollwork is great. The bag with the big flower is wonderful. I could go on and on.
