Worst fabric purchase? It would have to be the bright green stuff with even brighter clay statues and beads on it that I got in a mystery bundle of fat quarters. It was quilt shop stuff, so I couldn't bring myself to throw it out and the color was so...different...that not even cutting it into tiny bits would work. But I did find another quilter who was making a quilt from that line of fabrics who was thrilled to have it.
All your comments made me smile! Reading about your worst fabric purchase had me shaking my head in agreement; I've bought fabric on clearance only to get it home and realize what poor quality it is...and worse yet bought a whole lot of it (10 yards ladies, really!?). Or the fabric that was a gift or passed on from someone else. It's like fabric that comes to us we just can't refuse! I haven't bought that much fabric on-line but it seems to be a buyer beware - if it's too good of a deal then most the time leave it alone!
But we have good intentions of using the fuglies anyway; making donation quilts, practicing FMQ with them...or just cutting them up super super small (binding is a good one for the fugly!)
Thanks to everyone who played along (I even got some cowboy fabrics coming my way for Baby J's quilt!) what a great idea Lucy had, I think there's more fugly fun in the works!
