LOVELY UGLY CHALLENGE 2018
DEADLINE TO SIGN UP: May 31, 2018
MAIL OUT DATE: June 1, 2018

DEADLINE: ALL CHALLENGE ITEMS MUST BE FINISHED BY SEPTEMBER 15.

YIKES! I accidentally opened the dungeon door just to check on them and they escaped! I had them under lock and key to keep them from breeding and they took over my good fabric and now they are threatening to take over my sewing room! It’s not a pretty sight! Now, it’s time for them to leave! Um, I mean, go to another home. You see, some are just not as pretty as others and some have a reputation for just not playing well with others, and that is why I had them hidden away.

My challenge, should you dare to accept, is that I send you two (2) 10 inch pieces, sight unseen, for you to play with. Let’s see what you can make with these “beauties” using just 2 other pieces of fabric. I will take sign-ups until May 31 and then mail out on June 1. Remember, once you get them, they are YOURS! No givebacks! You will have until September 15 to finish. Once you finish, post pictures and we will vote on them for a prize. You do not have to send it to anyone, you get to keep your creation!

PICTURE AND VOTING RULES: To enter, take a before and after picture of the pieces and email me with your name and address and LU CHALLENGE in the subject line. This will ensure that all entries will be private. DO NOT POST THE PICTURES TO THE GROUP! We want to shock, oops, I mean surprise everyone with your entries. I will have a list of entries just to keep it in order. When the voting is finished, the entries will be posted online with the fabrics and their creation. The group as a whole will decide the winners and that will be announced on September 30. Each category will have a first and second place and prizes will be announced and awarded closer to the deadline. I will be sending out the prizes after the voting.

PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED FOR FIRST, SECOND AND THIRD PLACE FOR EACH CATEGORY BELOW:
1. Most original
2. Best camouflaged
3. Craziest idea

From the two 10 inch pieces let’s see what you can create. All items must be finished, quilted and binding added. No limit on size, design, or project that you make, but it must be quilted. You have 2 options. You can use both pieces together and create something or just use one piece, but 60% must be in the project and you can only use 2 other fabrics.

This is not a swap, it is a challenge. They are yours to keep and to do with as you please.
Have fun creating!

These are some of last year’s entries!
