My "ugly fabric" project

I bought this fabric years ago for one of my first quilts and somehow I was convinced by a fellow quilter that it was nice.  It's been sitting on my shelf since looking ugly at me and now it's gone!
It has become a sling type holder for my neighbour's catheter.  It snaps around the bars under her wheelchair, keeping the catheter off the floor and easy for her to reach.  And she can't accidentally wheel over it any more.
Love that I have my Kamsnaps pliers!
Maybe it's not so nice to make something for someone else out of fabric you don't like but no one ever sees it.  I thought it was a good way to use it up.  :)

First finish from my FAL list!


  1. Maybe it's "ugly" for quilting, but I think it's perfectly acceptable for a use like this! Some of the random floral prints I've been gifted are far uglier. She's blessed to have such a good neighbour!

  2. Congrats on all your finishes, fugly fabric or otherwise :o)
