    Spent the morning at a local quilt shop in Mississippi and met some wonderful woman who asked me to join their guild (sp). I was so excited I purchases my supplies needed to finish my rookie quilt, but of course who could stop there ....I bought 2 jelly rolls from Fabric Central called Neutral Mediterranean. I loved the color at the shop. I got home and opened them up...WOW! The fabric is soooo UGLY. I planned on making a tube quilt now Im scared to waste the time...I guess I could finish and always give it to my mom...Moms love anything. Then I got ready to free motion my Rookie quilt and Im so scared I think Im going to toss my cookies. Every time I put it under the foot of my machine I take it out and put it back on my bed. I tried a glass of wine and that just turned me into a bigger chicken.
    Thanks for listening

    Sew up the ugly fabric and use it to practice your quilting! That's what I did, and low and behold, I ended up liking my UGLY quilt! LOL

    That is the best advice anyone could give you.

    You are now a true quilter! And I know you'll find a way to make those fabrics and that quilt look beautiful. Remember, it's all in fun, so relax and have some fun. There are plenty more projects to conquer. And more fun to be had.

    I agree. Practice on the ugly jelly rolls. You will be surprised what a nice quilt it will make. Besides your ugly could be someone's beautiful.

    Ungly can become pretty with a little help. Smile and laugh at yourself, then look at everything with a new outlook. You can do it.
