    I made my first UFO

    This started out as a "Race Quilt" using a jelly roll. But the jelly roll was only 1 1/2 inches wide which of course altered the size of the finished quilt. i didn't like that so I started cutting it up, adding matching fabric, and ended up with this. I call it my ugly quilt because they are not even the colors that I like! It's a UFO because I don't have much interest in finishing it, altho I did buy fabric for the back today, barely visable to the right. ( Sale @ LQS going out of business...I'm so sad):

    Great use of scraps. I think you did a great job with borders to make this a nice quilt.

    You know, it's really not ugly. You've pulled it altogether and created a lively little quilt.

    Great quilt to keep in your car during cold winter months. I try to put my no so favorite ones in our vehicles. That way if we come upon an accident and I cover someone with the quilt, I am not upset if I don't get it back! The colors would be wonderful for kids too. You could always donate it to a childrens charity.

    You may not believe this, but it would make a great infant/toddler quilt. They actually really like black and brights together.
    I'm neither, but I really like it too!!
