Ugly Fabrics And More

This week's guild meeting started off with members enjoying our ice cream social. Delish! Then it was on to our end of the year business meeting. Following the officers reports for the year, it was on to show and tell.

Members showed off their contributions to the latest quarterly block challenge.

And now our ugly fabric challenge. Last fall(?) each participating member brought in a brown paper bag with a piece of fabric from the stash of that member that she considered ugly. Bags were handed out to each and the member who received it couldn't look in the bag before leaving the meeting. The assignment was given to make something out of that piece of fabric.Ugly may be in the eye of the beholder but our gals came back this month with awesome finished projects!
Sue J made an apron.
