    Very nice!

    I don't think it is ugly--but definitely different. Modern, I guess?

    I'm the one who said that they remind me of Pacman images...still think that, but think it is kind of cool. I can see it appealing to the younger crowd--a lot.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I don't think its ugly either. It may not be my cup of tea, but it sure looks like you spent a lot of time and effort on it, and your quilting is lovely. How nice that your niece loves her quilt made especially by her Auntie. The quilt in the first picture is as cute as can be.

    I think it's an interesting quilt. Every time I look I see another design, and the fabrics are lovely. No way is it ugly.

    It definitely is not ugly. Every time I look at it, I see something different.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. How true. You did a good job on this and I think it's great that you niece loves it enough to post on face book. BrendaK

    I think it's U-nique not U-gly! You never know what some one else's tastes are until you work with them. I believe it turned out great and as long as she's happy isn't that what matters.

    Not ugly at all. Maybe out of your comfort perspective but very interesting. If the recipient loves it, it is a real winner. The goal in making quilts for others is to please them and it looks like you have a perfect score on this one.
