Welcome to Round 2 of the Fugly Fabric Party!
In case you didn't join in last time here's what it's all about:
People in blog land are often organising their fabric, making room for the new and picking fabrics for all the lovely projects and QALs that are about. There's always so many beautiful new lines and so much fabric temptation to buy and stash.
There's also that other fabric. The fabric that you might never use, the ones you used to love, the ones that you don't know why you bought, the fabric sitting there taunting you, or hiding away at the back of a drawer somewhere! We all have it, it's the fugly fabric.
I got to thinking about what will happen to that fabric. Maybe it'll get used in some practice fmq, or pieced into a quilt back, or used for practice blocks - or not.
What if you could give it to someone else, someone that might actually like it and use it?!
Here's the idea - show us your fugly fabric! Ok it doesn't have to be really ugly - it could be any bits that you don't want anymore, you know you won't use it, you're sick of looking at it or you think it is actually ugly. Maybe you have a piece of fabric leftover from a quilt that you don't really need and can do without. Write a post and give it away!!
You can have a giveaway, a competition, a swap, offer to send it to anyone that will pay the postage - whatever you choose. I'll have a linky party and you can all have a look around other people's blogs seeing what fabric they have to offer and maybe find some gems! One person's trash is another's treasure.
You could offer really ugly fabric if you wanted (you probably wouldn't have many takers! *cough, cough*) or fabric that you just feel 'meh' about that someone else might really love.
I think nothing too scrappy, but decent sized scraps and pieces that are useable are ok and you could offer as little or as much as you like! Obviously good quilter's weight cotton only and not fabric that is utterly crap and no use to anyone.
There's no real rules, just come back here and link up one fugly fabric post and you'll be in with a chance of winning the fantastic giveaway!
All too often I think we hang on to pieces of fabric we don't love so why not have a fresh start...
I will set up a linky on Tuesday 8th May and have it up for 6 days, the winner of the giveaway will be announced on 15th May.
I have an amazing sponsored giveaway from Prints to Polka Dots!
