A Real Challenge!

My Brown Bag Quilt Contest exchange fabric came from Micki in Ireland.
This will be a real challenge for me because these are not fabrics I usually work with. However, I think they are the makings of a winning quilt. 
The rules are that I have to use 90% of the 'ugly' fabric I am given and can add as much fabric from my stash as I want. 
I can only buy one new fabric.
Here is what I have come up with from my stash so far.  
The red  and black fabric is the 10% I will put aside.  The grey and green will get used in the backing.
Now to come up with a pattern to use and one new fabric that will be the 'sparkler.
Stay tuned.


  1. The colour combo has great potential.

  2. So far, so good... I'd say! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  3. You've got some great options there!! My fabrics are a bit of a challenge, but I'm seeing how you work through what you'e received...that helps me reason through what I've got! :-) Love the large-scale print fabric. FUN!

  4. I'm sure you'll come up with a winning design for these color combos. I'll look forward to seeing your project take shape.

  5. I like the fabric you added from your stash. I'm sure the perfect pattern will come to you soon!!
