    one of my uglys

    I am not proud of it at all.I used scraps and cut the apart and rearranged them.I think it is so boring and ugly.but I am going to show you all anyway so you can have a laugh with me.I am not sure I even want to waste time binding it.

    I like it. Maybe you can place it under your sewing machine or decorate a table with it. I made something similar and I did bind it. I use mine as a pad to place my hot tea pot on.

    I bet somebody would appreciate it. I don't think it is all that bad. Put it on a truck that is going to help the people who were affected by Hurricane Sandy. I'm sure they could use a nice warm blanket regardless of what it looks like.

    it is just about the size of a placemat or small table topper.a small experiment.

    I like it! This is how I think quilting began. You make something lovely out of nothing and you did that.

    if you really don't like it applique something on it. as a flower, birds, you could applique anything on it. yes bind it and it will be wonderful, and be proud of it finally. I like it myself and I see so much potential in it it.
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    it's definitely not laughable. but if you don't like it, it would make a nice charity item.

    Okay, I'll be honest. It's ugly, but the quilting looks great!

    It is very pretty. Just finish it up and give it to someone. You won't be able to see it from your house. Quilting and piecing is just as great as always.

    OK I'm going to agree with you. We all have one of those things that says "What was I thinking?". BTW I didn't laugh, just smiled.

    perfect size for a pet bed at the local animal shelter. Practice your free motion quilting on it and gift it to the shelter.

    Well I see something good that came out of that quilt and that is all of the comments and suggestions. I read comments from some very nice people and it's always nice to read that. The quilting is really lovely.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    I'm not crazy about it either...but agree about the quilting. Can you show us the back? Perhaps use it upside down?

    I also like the idea of adding an appliqué.
