Ugly Fat Quarter Challenge...
My friend Bobbie held a little challenge on her site a few months ago... (I am late with mine)
you sent her what you considered and ''ugly fat quarter'' with a return address envelope inside and she sent you one back... now everyone knows I love ''lime green'' and the ugly I got was lime woohoo... and Bobbie says she didn't peek either so how lucky am I...
I decided to make myself a plastic bag holder...
 as you can see I appliqued butterflies to my fabric...
 and I heavily machine shadow quilted around the 3 butterflies...
I just love it...
and who says lime is ''ugly''
the pattern is in 
Handmade Patchwork Annual Vol 29 No5
I have changed mine as I didn't use their applique but used the butterflies that are on the pattern sheet also and chose to make a handle instead of drawstrings...
I still love it...
