    I agree. That's why there are so many types of patterns, styles, fabrics out there to suit different people with different tastes. It goes to show no quilt is ever ugly because beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Both are great quilts. I love the second one - both sides. Thank you for sharing them with us. You do beautiful work.

    Nice quilts, and it really does make the heart happy to give our quilts to someone whom appreciates them.

    Your story rings true for me. Isn't it wonderful when a quilt finds a home where it will be loved. This is one reason why I quilt. The first reason is simply because I love quilting. All my quilts eventually find a home of their own. I have sent many into arms that love them as much as I do.

    Those are some of the best scrappy quilts I have seen! I love the abstract arty look of them!

    I love both quilts but really really love the 2nd one. In fact, I've put an image of it into my bucket list. I'd like to make one like it too. Like you said - different people, different tastes.

    WOW thank you. Your comments really cheer me up after all those hours working on something that did not really appeal to me.

    Just to know that to you they were nothing special but to someone else they were beautiful.
    They were just waiting for the right home.

    Your quilts look good. I'm going to try something scrappy sometime. It's a good feeling when someone appreciates your efforts and loves your quilt.

    Oh I love scrappy because I like bright colors. You did a great job and Your Aunt is a happy camper also. Keep up the god work.

    Just because we may not like a quilt, doesn't mean that it's not the perfect quilt for someone else.

    wonderful job on both quilts! If only mine looked half as good..............well, they don't - but I love the process and will carry on. Quilting is such a calming art.
