I actually started this quilt several months ago, and then put it away after I started sewing the finished blocks together. Like all my well laid plans, mine can go astray at times. :) The fabric in this is from the "Louisa" collection by Moda, and was made from a jelly roll. The overall size is 49" x 68".
As I worked on the quilt, I became sick of the fabric. I just did not like it. And then when I started putting the 8" finished blocks together, I was having a heck of a time getting the points to line up -- I was having to really push, pull, tug, jerk, curse, etc. :shock: :( So I threw it all in a box and it became my first UFO.
But earlier this week I decided that I had better get busy on some Christmas presents since I have several relatives who are thinking that quilts are going to be under their trees this year. So out came "that ugly quilt that I hate" from the box, and I decided to finish it up. As I was working on it, my oldest daughter came into the room and was looking at it and said "That's pretty, I like it." To which I said something like "I hate this ugly quilt," and thus it's name was born. Now that's it's finished, though, I don't dislike it quite as much. Just glad to be done with it! :D
