    I bought fabric several months ago, and apparently I had a bit too much coffee and somehow thought they went together. I pieced together enough for a baby quilt/throw and decided I hated it. It looks like Hawaiian shirts mated and vomited out a little scrappy baby.

    I took it out today and still hate it, but I added the border...and I'll eventually convince myself to sandwich it.

    :oops: On the bright side, I'm planning a vacation...and I won't have to worry about the quilt police yelling at me when I'm sitting on it on the beach.

    I love your description, though I don't agree with it! Your quilt looks warm and cozy to me.

    I saw the picture before I read your post and thought, "WOW! What a pretty quilt." I love those colors and you did a great job on the piecing. I think you're just too close to the project right. In any case, it will sure be a great beach blanket. And you can do whatever you like with your quilt, right? ;)

    PPPFFFTT as my water goes all over the keyboard. Oh my goodness.

    I like it and I would be careful about any quilt police. They may throw you to the sharks.
    :lol:
    I would use it too. Very nice.

    Don't get made at me. I do like the quilt but it is a little busy. Would I use it? heck yeah I would. It is still pretty.

    That's exactly my problem with it. There's nothing to break up the busy patterns. I love the fabrics...just not together.

    However, I'm entirely too lazy to take it apart and add sashing. :lol:

    Looks like an autumn sky thru the fall leaves on the trees
    Maybe you just need to stand back and look at it from across the room???

    I like it! Maybe a very calm backing and binding will make you like it too. If not I am sure there will be lots of us willing to take it off your hands.
