    Its not that bad! I think it has potential! Get a couple more blocks done, then with sashings, I think it will be pretty!

    I LIKE it. I think I have had some of that green. It looks like a flower. You should make a whole quilt of this. I MEAN it. It is not ugly!!

    I was prepared to tell you it was really ugly, if in fact I thought it was - but I don't. Go ahead and finish the quilt. I think you will be surprised.

    Well.....I don't think its ugly...but stick my neck out it could be improved, if you just change the last triangle to something contrasting with the green, I think it would be more appealing to your eye...hope this helps :D

    I too like it. It looks like a flower and would look great in a quilt. Try some more.

    Well, I'm not just being nice, I really do like it. I agree with the others, make three more and put them together.

    It's supposed to be a flower and I was working on something for the round robin I joined. I just don't feel like I could do that to the other girls. I will just add it to the stack of blocks that have been a nice try.

    Thank you for all of your nice comments but I feel it is just too busy. I'll take the advice and make more but I'm not convinced at this point.

    Mary, since the rest of us seem to like the block, you might as well make more and finish at least a wall hanging. Then, you will have agift made for someone else if you don't like the finished project. :lol: That is what I do if I don't feel like a project is not turning out as I expected. Someone always seems to love them, no matter how I feel about it. And it won't end up in my old ufo pile. :!: :!: :!: :lol: :lol: :lol: Pam W.

    well Mary, I agree! :shock: more like unappealing I guess, but if you change that purple piece for something cooridinated it would be nice.

    I think it looks like a desert flower, different and pretty. I do like the scrappy look.

    I think you should try to put four blocks together all together in the middle and see what you get I just drew two together and gave a neat look to the center just play with it a bit I don't think there is any such thing as a Ugly block or quilt it is in the eye of the person looking at it. I made a quilt a long time ago in a class and I use purples, peaches and off white for the colors and my husband though it was not nice at all, but guess what some one seen it and fell in love with it and paid me 250.00 for it. I liked the block myself.
