    I think you've just looked at it too long. Fold it up, walk away. Bring it out in a month, step back and enjoy. You'll see what I do - it's wonderful.

    i LOVE it. Those are my favorite kinds of quilts. Everytime you look, you see another thing you never saw before. If you ever want to sell the top, let me know!

    I don't normally like scrappy but this one is beautiful! Do like everyone else says, put it away for a while and look at it with new eyes. :thumbup:

    You have a great quilt there, but if you really don't want to look at it ship it up to Canada I would love to quilt it for you I think once it is quilted you too will think that it is gorgeous.

    that's why i kept putting it away!!!--couldn't stand to look at it & it didn't seem to get better but i wanted to finish it. as i was sewing the last few seams together i was really hoping i would like it but YUK! i guess this is another possible candidate for the shelter!

    We are are own worst critics. I think it is fantastic. If you do not like it, it looks like you have many takers. I'll add my name to that list.

    Maybe you ought to raffle it? Everyone pitch in $10. who wants it and you can pick a name out of a hat? You certainly have enough takers. ( I want to point out that I am the FIRST in line, however.)

    Poor ugly thing. And to think you put all that time into it. TSK TSK. Don't waste another minute on it. My address is..........LOL

    It's a keeper!And if you really don't like it, you surely have family or friends that would love it. Or, there are many charities that could use it for a fundraising raffle or it could be donated to a veteran at a VA hospital.

    It is beautiful. Sometimes when I work on something too much or too long, it gets to be yuck whenever I look at it. So I put it away for awhile and then open it back up and finish whatever it needs. It gives you a new perspective. Maybe you'll try it and it'll help!

    Put 2 borders around it, one small and one larger. It would tone it down if you think it is to busy.

    I agree with everybody else, it's beautiful!!!
