    just needs a little love

    The ugly, colorful, center is from many moons ago, when I first started quilting. I was trying my hand at a trip around the world. I got frustrated with the blocks and my mistakes, and put them at the bottom of the UFO pile. They resurfaced a couple of years later, and thankfully my skills were better, so I fixed all the bad blocks.

    They sat around for a couple more years, and then I pieced what few blocks I had made into a long, skinny, useless top. Since I didn't have any more of any of those fabrics, and had no idea where I was going to go next with this ugly duckling, back to the pile it went.

    Well, yesterday I pulled it out again, determined this time to do something with it, probably for local donation. I shopped my stash for some fabrics that I thought might work, added 3 borders, and oui, la! I now have a useful size quilt top.

    Now it goes to the pile that's waiting for quilting, but I am very glad that this "festive" little quilt project will soon find a home and some love.

    I have chosen to be happy because it is good for my health - Voltaire

    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example
