2011 Ugly Fabric 9-Patch Challenge

Monday, April 11, 2011

Tonight was the Scrappy Quilters Challenge quilt night. We were given a piece of "ugly" fabric and had to use it in a quilt in at least 1 9-patch. 10 of our guild members participated in the challenge.

The guild members voted for the winners of the challenge by rating the quilts on Design, Workmanship, and Overall Appearance. Awards went to First, Second and Third place winners.

Third Place went to Dottie Star:

Second Place went to Jeannette Oblander:
