Tropical Twist Borders

I worked on the pinwheel border blocks for the Tropical Twist today. 

I also decided to join in the new Stashbusters Ugly (not so ugly) challenge BOM. There were some pretty ugly fabrics being used. The two requirements are all fabric must come from stash, each block must contain orange or yellow along with the ugly fabric. Two blocks will be chosen each month, you can do either or both. My fabric isn't really ugly, but it's one of those where you wonder, "WHY" did I buy this. It's a green and red paisley on black with gold flecks.  Ok, so it is ugly. The solid green and yellow compliment it and doesn't look too bad.

I went special notice on stashbusters before my surgery and haven't missed it so I've not turned back on the messages yet. I love your BOM challenge blocks! and I don't think your fabrics are ugly at all.

another forum the HGTV quilters board is doing a monthly BOM and I have been lurcking and following along but haven't jumped on board yet. I doubt I will as I have many other irons in the fire right now. Stitchery is my new love and I am keeping up with a BOM with that.

Can't wait to see what 2 blocks you make next month. Love from Texas! ~bonnie
