    THe only really ugly quilt I have made is when I was doing a challenge or something for the guild over which I had no artistic licience. At least you finished it. I am afraid that I would not have completed it if I felt it was ugly. That is what the UFO or white elephant table is for at guild shows or silent auctions.

    If you have pets it will be wonderful for protecting your furniture and the pet will love having their own quilt.

    Everyone on this board is so gracious and kind and always says the nicest things and assures me what I made wasn't ugly even though I know the truth.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and agree with you. Maybe not clear to ugly but maybe not the prettiest quilt I have seen.

    Thank you soooooo much for brightening my day to know I'm not the only one who does things that don't come out exactly as I planned.

    Having said this, I have one I call The Ugly quilt and it is my family's favorite. So maybe you just made your family's new favorite quilt.

    It kind of grows on me the more that I look at. I happen to adore scrap quilts and yours is scrappy and random. I'm glad to hear that you use it! Quilts have feelings, you know! :wink:

    It's rather unattractive. But I have one worse, so relax, you'll probably make another one worse in your career also!

    It's not that bad. You should see my first quilt. I won't show it to anyone; it's that bad. :oops:

    I've seen worse. OK, I've made worse. Should have seen the one I made for my boyfriend back in my 20s. No wonder that relationship didn't last!

    I happen to agree with Chele. No quilt is ugly not when is made by loving hands. This quilt has an appeal to it and I like it.

    Okay...poke me in eye w/a needle..for I don't think that is ugly at all!! I'd stand in an auction to buy it!! I see art...history in fabric...and I'd study it in trying to understand what you were thinking on placements, etc. I have a quilt that I thought was soooo ugly for years and years. It was many moons ago and I tried to quilt by hand (self taught)only to have someone tear me up about it...so sent all of it to my grandmother half finished..then she put it on the ugliest pink fabric made on earth. What I sent her was blue/white print fabric. I look at this quilt now and realize for the first time in my life that my grandmother was an artist. For real!! The imagination she had in the placement of my blocks, etc has me awe struck!! It really didn't dawn on me till I had it hanging on the clotheline to air and when retrieving it, I realized right then....wow! There really isn't an ugly quilt....I just don't believe it. Not even close w/this one!! Skeat........who recognizes that fabrics change at the same time our tastes might:))
