    Default Yet another Flower Power stash buster, done and dusted!

    Remember back in 2014 when Jenny did the tutorial on the exploding block? (No? Neither did I!). But I found some blocks in my stash using that technique, and my practice fabrics were charm squares from Big Lots! Remember when we were able to get those? (Cheap! But a bit ugly!)

    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!

    Someone will absolutely love it. Not my colors, but it is cheerful and bright. It will still warm a baby!

    I taught one of our tenants to quilt and the Exploding Block was one of her first projects.

    your quilt is so pretty! I couldn't muster up any more interest than to make the quilt the size of the one pictured! With one little lonely block left over! You did great to make a huge quilt with that block! And no sashing!

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It's not ugly, just unique m

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
