Ok, I love quilts that are meant to be used. I think the old quilt is great (yes, I searched facebook for it) and I'd have no problem using it. The replacement quilt is just as great. Smiley Good job on both of them!

I like it!  I went back through and looked at your other posts of your quilts and ALL of them are GORGEOUS!  I envy your quilting skills!  You are very talented.  While I love them all, my favorites (probably due to the sentiment involved) would have to be the memory quilts that you have done using a deceased loved one's clothing.  Those are so special!

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

I like this quilt.

I found the first quilt on facebook.  It's fine!  Let him keep it!  And, plus, now it has a cute story with it!

he's gonna keep it.  it really isn't apparent in the photos (thank the gods for crappy cell cameras only) but this was my first quilt.  the fabrics as a whole are fine. (i still have scraps of most of them sneaking into scrappy quilts here and there) but the technique <shudder> who can screw up a tied quilt ... me that who. and the bidning... eek.  i'm still surprised the quilt police haven't hunted me down yet for that.  like i said.  i learned a lot. and improved quickly.

he is having a ton of fun with this tho.  and not complaining about all the  cute crafty chicks around either... men!

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

No, I like to rock n' roll all night and "part" of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1 till 3.

Nice story! I wouldn't ever give up the original ugly quilt, either, if I were him. We don't get to where we can do things really well until after a few that aren't as attractive as we'd ultimately like them to be. But that doesn't make them any less valued or important. I'd venture to say that that original ugly quilt may be even more important in your sewing/quilting/friendship journey than the new one. I love the Facebook group part. That is just plain awesome.

Looks great!  I looked up the 'worlds ugliest quilt' on facebook... it's not THAT ugly!

I don't think it's ugly at all.  I love all the different materials.  It's almost like an I spy quilt for an adult!

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!
