    Just finished lap quilt

    I was given this fabric, which I think is ugly so I cut it up to make a lap size kalidascope quilt. There was enough of the original fabric to put on the back. This is my first using this pattern. It will be a gift to someone!!

    Looks good! Is the second pic the same fabric? What a difference the pattern made, you don't even recognize the fabric.

    I don't much like kaliedescopes, but I really like that one. It looks more like the images in children's toys and I really like it with the black spacers. What a great save on your ugly fabric!

    Love it! Isn't it great how a kaleidoscope pattern or OBW can take a strange fabric into something wonderful?

    It sure isn't ugly anymore!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Perfect ... I agree the original fabric was pretty ugly until you "fixed" it
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Much better all cut up. You did it justice. Way to use something that would have sat for a long time.
