Opps: Empty Design Wall

Actually, the wall is not empty but you have seen the dragon who is up there so often that I decided he would not be seen today.

So, here is the 003fabric I received for the Ugly Fabric Challenge.  And may I say, challenge is the right word.  However, I had just looked at a pattern online that I think will work well ok with this fabric.  I probably won’t begin work on it for a couple of weeks as I have other projects going but I do have a kind of plan.

I have been working on a couple of projects I can’t show.  I almost finished one project yesterday and have a second one about half way done.  Of course since I am making it up as I go along, who knows how far along I really am.  Smile with tongue out

As for the dragon, I have decided on the background fabric, prepared it and then attempted to pin him on.  I put the fabric on the DW and then the dragon but I found that I couldn’t pin him on because the pins kept sticking through to the wall fabric.  So I am currently waiting for DH to unearth a craft folding table from our junk storage room so I can get him pinned on.  After he is adequately stuck on the fabric I am going to hand baste him down in preparation for applique.  Then I will have to decide if I will machine or hand applique him.  (Or maybe he will decide for me)

And I guess that’s all folks.  Hopefully I will have more to show next week.


  1. I have some of all but one of your ugly fabrics! I'll bet you come up with a great pattern for these.

  2. That is a lot of florals! I think they would be perfect for my 36 patch quilt!

  3. Oh my, yes, florals can be difficult! I participated in the Brown Bag Challenge last year and got a lot of florals too. I mixed mine with small geometrics and fabrics with a lot more of one color than another!

    Hope the dragon makes up his mind on how he wants to be attached!

  4. Lots of florals, I'm sure you'll find a way to make something beautiful out of them!

  5. I don't think any of the fabrics are ugly by themselves. They turn ugly when you put all of them together! Hopefully you are allowed to add some other fabric to make the florals play together more nicely.

  6. I am interested in finding out what you make with your challenge fabrics. They are a challenge in my mind.

  7. I have some of those calico flowers... I used mine in small pieces in scrap quilts. Good luck finding the perfect quilt for them. Can't wait to see what you do with the dragon!


I love getting comments.
