Would you like some fugly fabric?


Charm About You


The lovely Lucy@Charm About You is hosting a fugly fabric party this week and while I'm far from sure that anyone will want it I've got some fugly fabric on offer.  Actually, I don't think it's horrific but it's not something I would ever buy or use myself (it's leftover from a sample I made) so this feels like the perfect opportunity to get rid of it  unload it onto some poor unsuspecting quilter send it to a good home.  What's on offer I hear you cry?  This is!



It's Deco Delight by Fabric Freedom and you can see a better representation of the colours here.

To give you more of an idea how much fabric there is here's a fugly group photo


There's quite a lot of fabric here, the remains of 14 (maybe 15) FQs and it weighs about 500g.  Now, I'm afraid I just can't afford to post it outside the UK (and within the UK it'll probably be sent 2nd class) so if anyone overseas really wants it (and I'm not sure anyone will want it!) then we'll have to come to some sort of arrangement about the postage costs - does that sound fair?


So, if you'd like to welcome this fabric into your home then please leave a comment below.  In the unlikely event that more than one person wants it I'll pick a winner (well, Archie will!) on Monday 13th February at 8pm.  If you're a no-reply blogger (or someone who comments anonymously) then please leave your email address (unless I know you in real life!) so I can contact you if you 'win'.


GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED - THANK YOU FOR ALL THE ENTRIES, ARCHIE WILL BE PICKING A WINNER SOON!

If you're at all like me you've read several of these posts and have been too scared to leave a comment in case you get entered into a giveaway!  You could always tick the 'I like this post' or the 'I love Archie' box instead!

And just so there's something someone attractive in my post here's some photos of Archie from the weekend.

Happy birthday to me, Happy birthday to me, 
Happy birthday dear meeeee, Happy birthday to me!  
Can I eat it yet?!
And about five seconds later the temptation became overwhelming...

Just a lick, just to check it's edible...

I took several photos of Archie in the snow (I've got several so you may be seeing more of these - one is so cute it made me exclaim in glee at how well it turned out but I'll save that for another time!).  He loves it so much and likes to chase snowballs and then try to either find where they've gone or pick up the icy centre (daft dog!) and I think the cold must bring out the smells as he always sniffs much more on cold snowy/frosty walks.   Our snow has almost gone but here's proof we did have a little bit!

Snow under my paws and sun on my face, what more could I ask for?  Oh yes, a biscuit!


I'll be back soon with a proper catch up post which will be full of lovely things that lovely people have been sending me, see you soon!

  1. I would pay the postage. This would be great for a stained glass quilt I have in mind. However, if you have someone interested in the U.K., go ahead and send it to them!

  4. Happy Birthday Archie! Your fuglies would be lovely done in stained glass windows patchwork, or cathedral windows - they're certainly bright enough! Jxo

  5. I was just thinking what Judith said and that's the fabric would look gorgeous as stain glassed patchwork. They've got a real Tiffany look about them and are gorgeous colours. I won't request them though because as much as I love them I don't know when I'd ever get round to using them!

    Archie looks like he's camouflaged in the snow!

    Archie is as handsome as ever!

  8. I'd also be happy to pay postage! Looking at making a stained glass quilt (as it seems many others are as well!) for my mom, and these would be perfect!

  9. I think the fabrics are beautiful! They would be a great springy quilt using an Amanda Murphy pattern such as Cafe Mocha. I would be happy to pay postage to the USA for them! We could definitely work something out if I win!

  10. Oh dear, dare I admit that I actually bought 2 FQs from this range last week from my local fabric shop!
    I thought I might need them for my Stained QAL as I'm a bit short on fabric but don't think they fit in after all.
    I'd be delighted to give yours a home and have a play with them - thanks for the chance :) I haven't been tempted to comment on any other fugly posts yet, lol.

    Archie's obviously the star of the blog pics - hope he enjoyed his birthday!

  11. I'd love to win and pay for the shipping to Ohio. Those colors would definitely brighten a dreary winter's day.

  13. Fabulous fabrics! I'd be so excited if Archie picked me! x

  14. Oooo now, I really like those colours. If they come to my house they will be made most welcome and given a home in amongst some other fugly fabrics that I have in my stash. They will be nurtured and cared for, and fed and made to feel all cosy, and then at some point in the future, when time is on my side, they will be made into a random and bright friendly quilt!

  19. Yyyyeeesh! These are AWFUL Archie. Not even nice enough to line your biscuit box. Definitely don't mix me up in your random lottery.
    Send me photos of you instead!

  20. I love your fuglies and think they would work well with some Kaffe Fasset fabrics - thanks for the chance to win them! IF I were lucky enough to be picked by Archie, I would be more than happy for you to send them by snail mail to my mum`s in Somerset. Hugs to Archie!

  26. I absolutely love these fabrics and I am gratified to see that their potential for stained glass quilting was agreed on as that was exactly what I used them for as you can see from my photo below

    I wanted to buy the full range but had to limit myself to the purple/green ones, and would love to take the rest of your hands. You can rest assured they would be properly loved and appreciated!

    I don't have a blog or a URL but you can contact me through Flickr if I am lucky enough to win *crosses fingers*

  29. is it possible to bribe Archie with virtuall bones? ... thanks for giving your fuglies a chance at a new home!
    Am I lucky that I'm in the UK until the end of February - even the Royal Mail can't take more than 2 weeks to transport a 500g packet.

  34. Those fabrics are gorgeous! I can think of many ways to use them to show off their beautiful colours! And yes, I'd be more than happy to come to some arrangement for the postage if Archie were to pick me as the winner!

  35. Wowser! I love those colours, bright yet warm! If I'm super lucky and Archie picks me could you send Archie and donate the fabric to charity??? He is super star! Talking of which, we may be getting an extra friend for the family about June, when our extension is built! How fabulous is that, my husband has said it out loud that it's happening!!!

  37. They are soo gorgeous. I'd love to own them.

    I live in France, but you could send them to my mother or step-daughter if that's okay with you.

  38. OH I LOVE THEM. Seriously. I love the colours and I love the patterns. I am not sure what the postage would be but I am in Australia and if I win I would be happy to talk about paying postage to get such yummy fabric. I know they aren't your cup of tea and you think I am made but I just love them. I don't even have to think about skipping the comment on this one - nothing fuggly about it. Thank you for the chance to win them.

  39. Oh I just saw a quilt made of this fabric on their website. Too bad all the prints are not available in the USA. I just went web searching for it. I would be happy to pay postage if, by chance, Archie would pick me. I love it. Vicki C
