The Not-So-Ugly Quilt

Do you remember the quilt that I was working on that my husband was less than thrilled with?  He is smart enough to not come out and say it's ugly, but I think that is what he thought!  I think his comment was..."it's kind of bright"!  I guess he is used to seeing all of my projects in dark fabrics, so maybe this was just a little shocking (trying to give him the benefit of the doubt!).  Anyway, the quilt is finally finished and ready to go to its new home.

Not ugly at all!  I kind of like it, even if it is brighter than my norm!

Have a great weekend!

    This may be bright compared to your usual, but this is not bright. Throw some Kaffe up on your design wall and then DH will appreciate this more. : )
    Personally--I love it! What a unique design. Nice job, Julie!

  2. I like it a lot! I don't think it is too bright, but just right. By the way, I got my scissor fob over the weekend and I totally love it!

  5. It's lovely! So charming. My husband does that too. Gets used to a certain look from my quilts and then doesn't quite know what to think.:)

  7. Love the combination of the two blocks - they're very similar - but different enough to make it interesting to look at. Like everyone else has said - it's not ugly OR bright!
