Could your Beast be someone else's Beauty?

For this secret fabric swap you will be sending 2 FQs directly to your assigned person. They won't know it's from you & they will be sending to someone else.
The Beast
That ugly piece of fabric lurking in your stash! That internet purchase that looked totally different on the website, that quilt shop visit made on an "off" day when you actually quite liked it! Dig it out ladies (& gents!?!), it's going to a new home
Please don't buy anything, let's not encourage the fabric manufacturers to continue to create such ugliness!
The Beauty
Now this doesn't have to come from your stash. We all know how difficult it is to part with (or cut into) that gorgeous fabric. This might mean a shopping trip, but I'll not apologise to your bank balance, because you know of the dangers before agreeing to the swap This FQ needs to be something that you think is beautiful, something you wouldn't want to cut into, something you might want to get yourself a little piece of too!
This swap really is designed to be lots of fun, so everyone needs to be aware that you might end up with an even uglier piece of fabric, but then you might not
When you receive your fabric you will need to post a photo with both fabrics in it & let everyone know which you think is the beauty & which is the beast. Hopefully some of the rehomed fabric will find new appreciation!
If you fancy joining in this fun swap then comment on the thread by the 31st May & message me your address. Once I know who is joining in I'll message everyone with the secret details of who to send the squishie to. You might want to get someone else to write the address if you think your handwriting might get recognised
All squishies need to be posted to your swap partner by the 30th June so there is plenty of time to dig through your stash to find something appropriate

Katy, I've created this thread on my phone & it looks really strange to me. If it looks odd to everyone else could you please work your magic & fix it?

Thank you xxx
