    **UPDATE** to 'ugly quilt'

    Many thanks to everyone who offered suggestions on a quilt top that I simply was not happy about.

    Most everyone was in agreement with me..... the borders needed to be re-done. I am very pleased with the revision and am ready to get this baby quilted for a benefit, silent auction for my aunt and uncle.

    The new borders make it beautiful. It is for sure a money maker for the fund raiser. Thanks for sharing the revised quilt!
