In The Bag - Ugly Fabric Quilt Challenge of 2012

“In The Bag - Ugly Fabric Quilt Challenge”

Back in 2010 I participated in a Brown Bag Quilt Challenge over at Stash Manicure, many of you may remember that, or remember about it going on. It was really a lot of fun and I enjoyed myself a lot and made a new friend and learned new sewing skills.

My fabrics my swap partner sent me went from me worried "What would I do with these?".....

 ......To this wonderful, beautiful quilt. It really is a favorite of mine. So what do you think I did.......

I decided to start a new challenge this year along the same lines. 

The basics are listed below:

You and your swap partner will swap 2 yards of ugly fabric and create a quilt using 90% of those two yards. You may add any fabrics from your stash and only add one yard of new fabrics for your quilt.

The challenge will run May 1, 2012 through October 1, 2012. 

Signups will run until April 30th or until we have reached 120 swappers.  When 120 swappers have joined, it will close. If April 30th comes up and we don't have 120 swappers, we will close and go with who signed up.

To view a complete set of rules and information, please visit the BLOG I have set up for this challenge. You will leave a comment on that BLOG that you want to participate. 

I am looking forward to this and I hope you are as well! It was a lot of fun last time and I enjoyed seeing all the BEAUTIFUL quilts made from "Ugly" fabrics!!

Won't you join me?!?!

Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!
