    I did all the quilting. The center strip was a panto, the other is free motion and ruler work. No computer assistance here.

    I love your scrappy!! I may have to borrow this idea for my next one.. and done with those beautiful reproductions...

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    I participated in the ugly fabric swap and challenge here on the QB. I received 1/3 yard of a fabric someone thought was ugly and I liked. I made this quilt top with the ugly fabric, scraps, and yardarge that I had from my stash. Several of the fabrics I added were hard to use in other quilts, so this top used up a bunch that might not have been used otherwise. Unless you participated in the ugly fabric swap you would have a hard time guessing which was the "ugly fabric."
    I like how it turned out and hope you enjoy looking at it too. The pattern was in arecent quilting magazine but I changed the color scheme a bit and didn't construct it the same way since I made it based off the "coming soon" picture before the actually pattern was printed.

    The "ugly" fabric is the denim colored plaid with red polka dots. I used all but a narrow strip of it in the quilt. I am always amazed at the differing opinions of pretty and ugly.

    I guessed the yellow zebra striped fabric was the ugly one but I do admire the diversity and uniqueness of some of the fabrics used in this quilt. I think I would have been more challenged by the fabric I named vs. the one you were given.

    Yep, the zebra stripes were far worse, so was the cheddar fabric with chicken footprints, and the mustard with blue gears. Even the tire fabric could have been hard to use. And I'm guilty of buying all of those. The one i dislike the most is only represent in small pieces....a greyish mustard with white flowers. There is also a lot of a blue fabric with flowers that I don't like but seemed to match everything. So, I got rid of a lot of weird fabrics with this quilt. The crazy thing is that I still like it.

    I do like the crazy quilt too and there are some extremely unique fabrics used in the quilt. Does the blue fabric with flowers have cabbage roses on it? If so, I have quite a bit of that fabric still that I haven't figured out how to use up in quilts. But you've given me some ideas. Truly do like your quilt.

    Yes, there are a few small roses on the blue fabric, I think they are the cabbage type. There are other flowers too though. The scale of the flowers is small enough that the fabric always reads blue. It isn't something that I probably would have bought but it sure did match a lot of different fabrics. Good luck with your left over yardage. Fabric challenges can sure make piecing fun. I'm glad you like how my top turned out. Thank you.

    Some of the cabbage rose yardage isn't leftovers - some of it didn't see the light of day until I organized my fabric and realized how much of that fabric I still have. I can always use it for practice pieces when trying out new quilt squares/patterns or making potholders. Fabric bowls also come to mind.

    Future Quilter, I really like your mom's quilt. It's so different!

    Ellageo, what a beauty! I'm partial to colors and black sashing. Really makes it pop!

I love it because I have such fond memories of the materials used. I am sure you feel the same. So here is my quilt top...thank you for allowing me to share it with you!

    simple scrappy

    Finished while watching the Olympics. It is 1.5" strips sewn together with sashing of 1.5" in a strong color. In this case, yellow. I made 3 identical ones because I had so many strips and wanted to use them up quickly. It's not a very quick quilt, but it is easy.
