An Ugly Fabric Challenge

Hi everyone !!!!  I am participating in an UGLY FABRIC CHALLENGE !! how fun... it is sponsored by a member of the Yahoo Online Sunshine Guild...  she donated us all a fat quarter of her UGLIEST FABRIC.... and here is what came in the mail today.....................................

(I don't actually think it is THAT ugly).

When I was opening the package, DH said "oh, what do you have ", and I responded, 'oh someone sent me some UGLY fabric'...

He said - 'gee honey, that's not very nice'....

The challenge is to make as many 12 inch blocks as possible from the ugly fabric.  Then we will send them back to their "mother", who will make charity quilts from the blocks... 
 So - here is some of the ugly fabric made into lovely flying geese....

What will I do next?  Why, I have no idea...

Meanwhile, I have been binding this quilt below.  It is a guild quilt for donation - a longarmer quilted a bunch of them, and then we all adopted them for binding...

Last night it was my handwork for the Emmys... but I left it in the chair unfinished...

Voila - here's what i found when I came home from work:

"Gee Ma", he said"  I am so glad you quilt for a hobby"!  to which I replied,                              "Yes, dear George, I make all these quilts just for you so you can nap on each one one time before I wash them!!!!  "
Happy Quilting to everyone...
