    I have started my first quilt. It is a Blue and Yellow 4-patch scrappy. It's ugly. I am trying to fix it with sashing but do not know what color to use? Is the blue to " medium" ? I tried a white sheet? a lighter blue? Would it help to put little blocks in the sashing?

    blu or white sashing

    It is a very pretty quilt. I love blue and yellow together. Either color would make good sashing, or even a darkish blue, similar to what you used in your pieces. I would love this quilt. You did a very nice job on it - NOT ugly at all!

    I like the white sashing. It's not ugly either way though!

    Never judge a quilt top by its individual blocks. No matter which way you go, it will be cute. The sum of all parts is what gives it character.

    I like the blue sashing. It brings out the colors in the squares. You have a very pretty quilt, not ugly. You will be pleased with it when the quilt is finished and quilted.

    Blue all the way for me!
    And I agree, there's really no such thing as an ugly quilt. :D
