    Default My ugly duckling deff turned into a beautiful swan ..

    This is my ugly ( fabric ) duckling quilt .. Using a stash of what I thought was unusable fabrics ..
    But I'm super pleased with the way it turned out and grew I to something I am very proud of ..
    Simple cross hatch quilting with a small amount of echo quilting around the border ..
    This is going to some friends of mine who live in woods and have a new baby boy ..
    The quilt has been named ... ' The Badger Set '
    I want to say a HUGE thank you to all on here ..your pictures are all inspirational , your ideas are all amazing , and it keeps all members going and going !
    I may not say much , but it doesn't mean I'm not reading and watching every day
    Thank you !

    Nothing ugly about this one... I love to take a peek at what I have and say..."make something from this"... it's half the fun!! The rest is when it's done and you can't believe how much you love it!!

    This is the 2nd one of these (very similar) in the past couple of weeks. This is beautiful. I must look through my 'ugly' fabric.

    That turned into a truly beautiful quilt. You did a wonderful job with that. Sometimes I think the hardest part of working with fabrics we don't like is getting the motivation to actually sit down with the fabrics themselves. You, however, overcame that and created a work of art. Love it!

    It came out perfectly. No need for the ugly pile on this one. A nice warm and cozy quilt to huddle under!
