Ain't no party like a Fugly party...
Wow, have you been over to the Fugly Party being thrown by Lucy from Charm About You ?? A whole bunch of people are giving their fugly stash pieces away. Fugly can mean ugly, or it can just mean something that you know you'll never use for one reason or another. And beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? Their fugly might be your favorite new quilt fabric!
I'm giving away a little bit of both...some I think is ugly, some I'll just never use. I have 3 packages of fabric all together, which I'll ship to anyone in the US for free, or internationally if you are willing to pay the postage with Paypal (sorry!).
Package #1 is the ugly. A set of two FQ's of Dancing Bugs 3, by Juan David Cordona. Even the name is weird, since there isn't a bug in sight, hahaha...just lots of fun music-y stuff: I was going to use if in a quilt for my daughter, but now I just don't know what I was thinking. I get too excited in quilt shops, I think. It's unsafe. For my wallet.
Packages #2 and #3 will be identical. Each is a set of 2 FQ's from the popular (and out of print) Mendocino line by Heather Ross. The one on the top is Giant Octopi in Orange, and the one on the bottom is Kelp Forest in Blush. I bought this back when I thought I needed a yard of each fabric to make anything. I've since grown to realize that the pillows I wanted to make for my niece's birthday (last March, oops!) will be even better with a little of both and some pretty linen to pull it all together ;) Anyways, these are out of print, and still pretty popular I think so I hope someone wants them, lol
There are two ways to become the new owner of this fabric:
1. Leave me a comment telling me what site or blog you think has the best tutorials for a complete beginner to quilting. I have a 2 dear friends who are going to take the plunge and they've asked me where they should go to learn. I don't know offhand, so maybe one of you can tell me! If you don't know of one, that's okay, just say hi, or tell me about your favorite super easy tutorial, or just leave an emoticon ;)
2. You can get a second chance by becoming a follower of my blog (or if you already follow, just mention that in a comment). My blog is new, and I'd love to have more followers. I might stop feeling like I'm just talking to myself!
Oh, and don't forget to stop by Charm About You and see all the other great stuff people are giving away.
