    Love your NY Beauties. So funny what one considers ugly. I don't find that floral fabric ugly at all.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I don't think the floral is ugly at all.

    It's so funny to see what one person sees as ugly another person likes. Even better when an *ugly* duckling fabric turns into a beauty. I like it.

    I think it's pretty but I think I would also have a hard time figuring out what to use it with. I do love your colors though. I'm not overly keen on the pattern but that's of course my personal taste, but you did a lovely job with it! Don't get me wrong. I wonder how that fabric would look in a kaleidescope block.

    I think the "ugly" fabric is the most beautiful one in the whole quilt! Nice job!

    My thoughts exactly. I really think that floral fabric is fabulous (& looks awesome in your quilt). I guess that old chestnut is true -- "Beauty is in the eye...".

    Doesn't look ugly to me! I love the florals, Sega. You did a great job with the block--what's the pattern?

    This only goes to show there is no ugly fabric. I find the uglier the fabric on the bolt, the better it looks in a quilt.

    It's beautiful.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
