    Name of quilt: headache! :? The colours - oh my what was I thinking? I tried Ricky Tims convergence technique with all my own dyed material (probably where the problem started with the choice of colours). Oh well, again will notch this one up to experience! I certainly prefer the back of this quilt. This was a solid piece of fabric - can't take any credit here! :lol:

    I really LOVE this, I'd be more than happy to own it, you did a great job of the convergence and your hand dyed work is beautiful!! :thumbup:

    I'm sure some folks will think it is beautiful, even if its "mother" doesn't!
    (That back fabric would be an interesting one to use as a quilting design along the curves, ignoring the front.)

    It is all in the eye of the beholder. It is not ugly by all means!! I think it looks very nice. I do love the backing fabric but the front looks great as well. Don't put yourself down!!!

    I agree with the others - I like your quilt and the fabrics! I rather like the colors. I seemed to have gone to liking these colors of late.

    Love the front and back of this quilt. I think you should change the name of your topic to 'my most challenging quilt for 2010' because it is far from ugly. We can be so hard on ourselves sometimes can't we !

    I really like it! I think maybe you have just tired of looking at it - put it away for a while. Later take it out and look at it again with fresh eyes. You will probably find that you like it again. If not I will PM you w/my address and it can live with me-LOL JK!!

    If thats the ugliest quilt of 2010...the nicest one would have to win blue ribbons...I think that one is fantastic...the colors, the pattern and the design on it.

    i think it's awesome!! i love the design and the colours work great together. i really like seeing something new and different. i think it would be perfect for any teen or young person. maybe it just doesn't fit with your decor or something? it's probably one of the 'cooler'ones i've seen in a while

    Hey, that's pretty and I love the choice of colors. They are bright and cheerful and will be loved by anyone who is lucky enough to get it as a gift.

    You may be sick and tired of it, but it is downright gorgeous!
