From Ugly to Prince Charming

I won a basket with some uglies…

glass 165

I bought some pre-cuts with uglies hidden in the center.

I heard that if your fabric is still ugly, you just haven’t cut it small enough so I bought a pattern that called for small pieces of 80 different fabrics – 40 dark; 40 light. (Split log cabin by Judy Neimeyer, for the record)


I bought more fabric.

I shuffled the deck according to instructions.


I made the blocks. This was not my kind of fabric or my kind of pattern. Quilting friends told me to stick with it – it would turn out in the end.


I decided I had a colour problem, and signed up for classes.

I put some of the fabrics on the back as a forever reminder.


I posted a picture on FB.


It got 1500 likes, 200+ comments and 50 shares.

Someone wants to buy it.

Go figure.

Have a great week. Thanks for reading this post.

    Judy your quilts are beautiful, and by the way, I think that all the fabrics are lovely.

    I like it. Isn’t it funny how we hate (maybe not hate), dislike a quilt as we are piecing, but like it when it all comes together.

    I think the quilting does a lot to change the final look of a quilt, making a huge difference in the finished product.

    I like it! I am a form that there are no ugly babies, no ugly brides, and no ugly quilts. Good job, Judy. Peggi
