    So I thought, why not put these blocks together, quilt them up and have a finished quilt. Yes, now I have an UGLY finished quilt! Guess it is sort of cute, even with these gaudy colors!

    I don't think this quilt is ugly! I've seen a lot of quilts on this site that are gaudier that this. I bought the same fabric (minus the green border) at Big Lots a few years ago, made a child's quilt that I entered in a local quilt competition, and it won a ribbon! And no, it wasn't for ugliest quilt. The judges must have thought it was pretty. Go figure!

    I think your quilt is great!! My daughter works at Big Lots.....she picked up fabric there for me. The JR strips were cut all wonky...the charm squares weren't much better. Here is a disappearing nine patch quilt I made for my niece with the Big Lots fabric:

    It was lost for a couple of years, then the other night I couldn't sleep, so I started investigating a Tote under my bed. What do you know, there was my missing lone star top!
