    Default When is a quilt just too ugly to continue?

    I am embarrassed to post this, but want your input so...

    I wanted to make a quick quilt for a colleague having baby. I made a quilt with what I thought would be a woven pattern. From about row 2 I hated it, but kept going. I added crazy appliqué stars because... Well I don’t know what I was thinking. Still terrible or even worse. Then I decided to slice out all the rows that had the woven look and I resewed the rows. It looked better, but I now realize my bar had been lowered because it was so ugly before. I should have stopped but . I decided to baste it.

    Now this morning I look at it again and see it’s true weirdness. I wish I had not basted it because I do like the back. I just don’t think I can give this one away. I will use this for FMQ practice. When do you stop?
