Ugly Fabric Finds New Homes

Okay, I have organised myself to sort out who gets what in the Ugly Fabric Re-homing Scheme. It all has a new home, which is fantastic. And now I just have to get it to you.

For the fabric that had more than one person offering to adopt, I wrote the names on scraps of paper -

Got a hat -

Went and got a Miss Number Generator, who is impartial as she doesn't have a clue who any of you are (and would happily keep all the fabric for herself) -

And she went about the business of drawing names -

So, without further ado, here is who is getting what -

Lot #1 - Wendy

What are you talking about!! Lots 1 and 6 are lovely (except that green batik thing on the left of lot 6).

I LOVE the blue one with roses!

Lot #2 - Jan

there are some prints in two that would fit in with my hexie quilt which is unashamedly old fashioned!

Lot #3 - Annabella

What`s one man`s meat is another man`s poison I guess...I would like to go into the hat along with Judith and Dianne for the rocket fabrics as I know someone who would love something made from them. On the others? You seem to have enough takers and I`m sure they will go to good homes or Judith`s charity quilt. Thanks Susan!

Lot #4 - Pomona

I actually like pics 1 and 4 - oh dear! I am obviously very old-fashioned! Any thing retro, that's me . . .

Lot #5 - Judith

(Here you go Judith, ten FQs to kick start your charity bee.)

Lot #6 - Linda

i like your #6 i am making crazy mom quilts 36 patch quilt along and as i am just starting i have not got too much of a stash and you need quite a bit for this 36er.thanks for the chance if i am lucky or would you say unlucky :)))

I hope that by adding your comments you know who you are. And now I need addresses please. If you could email them to me that would be great. susan (at) standen dot me dot uk

If I don't get them in the post this morning (which is obviously not likely!) I will see if I can squeeze them in the car and take them to my mother's and post them from there. If not, many apologies and they will be posted upon our return from northern shores.

I do hope that you offer these fabrics a better, more loving home than I did and find that you have projects that they fit into. Thanks for stopping by and participating.



  1. have a fabulous holiday Mrs!!
    Drive safe

  2. Oh thank you thank you thank you! I love that fabric! Wonder if I can find a charitable use for it that doesn't involve a charity bee as my quilting skills aren't up for it. Anyone know of any charities looking for handmade bags or the like?

  3. Thank you, thank you! What a beautiful assistant you have too! No rush getting ours in the post, as we'll be kicking off in Sept. Your generosity will 'bee a blessing' to many! Jxo

  4. Fabulous news! Thanks so much Susan and Miss Number Generator..I shall email you details but no rush on mine too. Just enjoy your holidays!

  5. Actually I couldn't remember typing no2 Because the ones i was thinking of were on the first picture up for grabs! So I went back and checked and it seemed I made a complete finger fumble! Opps too much on my mind this last week. So please feel free to send lot 2 to someone else as they won't fit in my quilt at all! sorry!

  6. Congrats to the lucky winners. You know, I think it's bad when I can't even win ugly fabric!
    Have a lovely hols - hope the weather is fine for you

  7. Thank you so much - I think it is so kind of you (even if you do think it is ugly), and I am really grateful.

    Pomona x

  8. You have definitely got the best-looking Random Number Generator I've ever seen! Thanks for your generous spirit which was willing to part with what you call ugly, and I know Judith and our new Bee will make good use of your generous donation! YOU'RE A STAR!

  9. thanks so much looking forward to the postie coming with them ,thanks also to the random number generator she did a great job !!
