    Ugliest Quilt Ever

    When I first started quilting I bought a line of fabric and used it to make this quilt. It is so ugly but I learned so much from it

    It is beautiful. I looked very hard and couldn't find any ugly. I guess you forgot to put it in.

    Nothing is ugly in quilting and this is no exception. In the right setting, this quilt would look even fab.

    I don't remember you showing me this quilt. I will say the colors are not my favorite but that doesn't make it ugly! Maybe just not a favorite!

    Quilts speak differently to each of us.

    Although I don't find it ugly, I understand what your saying. It is very dark, without much contrast. No visual interest. The pattern is nice. The fabric, I imagine, was very beautiful. I am glad you where able to learn lessons from making this as this is how we grow as a quilter. I have more than one that I feel this same way about...I, however, did not complete them...maybe I should....they would be great charity quilts to someone who would appreciate their warmth.

    Actually, I like the soft muted look you've achieved.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
