Our 1st Annual Ugly Fabric Quilt Challenge

14 August, 2017

I see TONS of fabric - literally TONS from our fabric reps each year.  Sometimes they are gorgeous (and we order them!), and sometimes, not so much.

I was recently presented with a fabric that was so ... challenging, that I felt like I just had to order it - for YOU, of course!

And thus, the first annual Cary Quilting Company Ugly Fabric Quilt Challenge has been born!  We have 30 sealed bags - all containing the same *adorable* fabric, for you to use! If you purchase one, fabric sight unseen, here is your mission:

  1. You must use at least ¼ yard (half of what's in the bag) of the ugly fabric in a quilt.
  2. Your quilt must be totally completed by October 31, 2017. When you return with your finished quilt, you will get a $5 Cary Quilting Company gift card, just for playing along!
  3. Your quilt will go into an Ugly Fabric Quilt Viewer’s Choice Challenge, both online and in the shop. The viewer’s choice challenge winners (1st, 2nd, and 3rd place) will win gift cards to the shop ($25, $10, and $5, respectively).

If you play along, and you SHOULD, please don’t share any photos or let your friends see your ugly fabric until all 30 grab bags have been sold – it’s only fair to those who might become your competitors! If you need to shop for fabrics to make your ugly fabric sing, just peek it out of your bag quietly.

This is a fun way to challenge yourself, and when you turn in your finished quilt, we literally give you your grab bag purchase price back, so it's essentially free - the only risk is whether you are brave enough to choose a bag and open it up! :)

Be brave and try something new.  This fabric needs you! 

Purchase your Ugly Fabric here while it lasts!

UPDATE: All bags have been sold - so here is the fabric we chose for you:

Voting is open through November 10th, 2017!  Vote HERE.
