But please(!) don't start this til after the New Year!

Reading back through that swap, I noticed that several people  wished for more of their ugly. Would it be possible to increase the amounts that we share with the rest of the people? Also a little longer time-frame would be nice! Just a suggestion. Connie is the boss!

It was started by Connie back in April of 2015. I hit the view all swaps and looked for it. The explanation is there.

And I do agree with you, Gail, about Beauty being in the eye of the beholder, otherwise, we would all be making the same stuff and wouldn't that be boring?!

Thanks Gail. I think it would be fun and not overwhelming. 

Comment by carla j walton on September 9, 2018 at 1:58pm

Well Ginny you are in luck. Because Connie has said she would like to host another ugly fabric swap! 

Comment by Ginny Andersen on September 9, 2018 at 1:58pm

I think Carla &/or Chef started it. If I remember correctly, everyone sent their "ugly" to the coordinator and she shuffled and sent them back out to the participants. They, then, had to make something and post it on the swap page. Is that right, Carla? I was still in ND and new to the site and just watched as it happened.

I could run that ugly fabric swap again after the first of the year. Can you wait until then Ginny?  I really enjoyed that one because you have to use that creative side for sure.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or so they say.  I just used some ugly fabric that had set on my shelves for years.  Guess what?  It is gorgeous in the quilt, it ended up being the thing that brought it all together.  

Ginny, how does it work?  Yardage or FQs or what?  It sounds like fun and no work involved.  Every one has some of that "what was I thinking?" stuff around

I would really like to see the Ugly Fabric Swap done again. I watched when you all did it a few years back and loved the end results that everyone came up with. So many new members that haven't done anything with us yet!
