Default Plum Ugly Quilt needs to be renamed!

Here is the quilt top finished. Posted it several days ago under title of Plum Ugly Quilt (or something like that). i received several suggestions on finishing it up and making it larger.

I decided to add another row of blocks and put in a plum (purple) 1" border. Then I remembered that I had 200 or more crazy crumb 3 1/2" blocks put away so I pulled those out for the outside border. I ended up taking a 1/2" seam to join the crumb blocks so they would fit better. Still not perfect on the corner but I can live with that. I will use the same purple fabric for the binding. I love how it turned out. Decided the name maybe should be "Riot in the Stash Bin" or something along that line. One reason...there is a riot of strings on the back that need trimming! UGH!!

I like your scrap quilt. It has many elements of interest. Please don't call it Plum Ugly-it isn't. I like the idea of Riot in the Stash.

I never thought it was ugly, just need to be bigger. And you did a fantastic job. It is a beauty.

I love it! I like the name "Pixi Sticks"
That's what I thought of when I saw all those colors! It's a beauty!

That border really sets it off, and no, it isn't ugly, and the new name is terrific!
