    Slightly better than I thought it would be

    You're right - it definitely looks better now its sewn together and the friend that will be getting it is delighted.

    Its not just the colours - there's one print that drives me mad. Its meant to be cute little birds on a branch but they are so small (compared to the other prints) they look like insects splatted on the car windscreen!

    That really did turn out to be very pretty!

    I love your squashed bugs fabric. If you don't tell your friend she'll never think of it that way!

      Looks really nice. I don't think the birds look like splattered bugs, but did have a chuckle at the description.

          Jane........the quilt top is pretty. I made a table runner from that fabric a couple of years ago. I didn't like the "squashed bug" fabric either.

            In the what it's worth department, I think it is very nice.

                    I wasn't real crazy about these fabrics either. I am glad I only bought a charm pack. But this is what I made with mine.

                          Please don't draw your opinion about that fabric to her attention. Every time she looks at that quilt she'll think about what you said. I see birds. Hopefully she will too.

                            LOL that is too true, about the windscreen "birds"! It does look great though, let's focus on that.
