More Fugly Fabric
I finished another exact copy of the blue butterfly flimsy without borders that I last showed you. They are big enough to stand alone but I think they would look really good with borders. These are fast and easy. I've never done this before and it was just what I needed. I have so many fungly fabrics in my stash. I am attracted to bright colors and bold prints. The ducks have been around for a long time. Wonder what I had in mind when I bought it. The tan goes well with it but it has some blue (see the top area) stain from a fabric that faded when it was washed with it. I had rewashed it but there is still some of it. I think there is enough good fabric to use, though. I went for the yellow again but then the red. But there is no red in the print. It would be okay but I think I like the black better. This would be more of a man's quilt and he might like the black. Looks like I have enough of these fabrics to make a throw. I'll have to do some thinking to keep the ducks upright. There are a couple small pieces of butterflies. One is half and the other only a 14 inches. They have a brighter orange than the pic shows and I have a lot of orange fabrics. Any ideas? I had to show you the red/orange wave fabric I have. It is the same pattern as the blue I just used. I just love them and they are good quality. Next decision is borders for blue funglies. I think I will name it Blue Butterflies. I must think about quilting these and some others I have ready to do.
