    It is not BU! LOL I love it. Maybe you think it is BU because you got tired of working on it? It really is a nice quilt.

    Beautiful, and unusual, I love it, quilts made from scraps are my absolute favourites over all other quilts, this has such character and charm, I would be happy to love it, if you don't!!!

    You did a great job! Colors go nicely together, and you made room for more scraps!

    I don't think it is ugly at all. I would be proud to have it.

    What is ugly about that quilt. The colors in it would make a good quilt for a guy. I like it. And what fun to use up all those scraps. Now you can go out and buy more to fill up that empty space.

    That is NICE! That pattern is interesting! The attached photo is what I took showing the floor in the restaurant at Downstream Casino (hubby thought I was NUTS taking a picture of the floor!)

    You're just as bad as me (being critical)! That quilt is nothing close to ugly! I love the vintage scrappy look. You did a wonderful job!

    I'm sorry you don't like your quilt, but I love it! In fact, that's the first and second quilt I made as in my Avatar picture. I love the scrappy quilts and what a great way to use up all those scraps that we create!

    Looks like you had lots of strings. I like your quilt. Others must like it too since it gets lots of use.

    Thanks for the kind comments; they are appreciated.
    I really have to laugh as I've seen so many string quilts that look great and I really do like them. But this is one of those pics that make the quilt look better than it actually is! Some of the fabrics are really ugly and I hate to waste anything--so it makes a great snuggle up quilt as I put flannel on the back side and who cares if the grands wipe their greasy popcorn hands on it.
