A Tale of Three Quilts #3




























The last of the three quilts!  This one is so NOT trendy colors, I secretly feel like it's the underdog of the three:)

As a child I was always drawn to the 'ugly' or unwanted (by my own perception) and loved the various teddy bears and other items just because no one else liked them.  I often chose the ugly one because I thought it's 'feelings' would be hurt!

I suppose I still have remnants of that outlook which makes me defend this quilt against my own accusations of it!

What it lacks in trendy though, it makes up for in bright puffy softness.  I hope some little girl somewhere thinks it's the cutest.  Or maybe the ugliest!

  6. I'm thinking you and I would get along fine. My sister used to tell me "you'd cuddle a coat hanger if that's all there was" . Thankfully it never came to that.....

  7. This doesn't look ugly to me in the least. If anything, the colors remind me of Mary Englebreit's palette. Very cheery and bright!

  9. Not trendy colours! These are fabulous colours- they play so nicely together and to think they are mostly prints - DS pieces, Kaffe and those adorable mushrooms! Trendy-bah humbug!

  11. Shame...I don't think this quilt is ugly at all, it's gorgeous in fact!

  12. Ugly? I think it's lovely! Just the sort of quilt I love to see and to make. Don't believe in "trendy" and the idea of "must have" to use the latest sets of designer fabrics. I love the idea of taking what fabrics you have, playing with the design and colour combinations and creating a warm cheerful quilt.

  13. OhioLori called this 'fun and happy'. I think that is the greatest description :) I too love the bright colours. I am so behind on 'trendy' I wouldn't know if it was or not. I just like this quilt!

  17. I think this is a darling quilt!
    I have a memory quilt to make for my great-niece from some cotton shirts her father wore and was wondering what dimensions to cut the pieces to end up with a five or six inch square - thanks so much.

  24. I have a practice when i'm making a quilt, there has to be at least one fabric that you just do not like. I find that so often, that without that one fabric the quilt would not be the same. It challenges you in your fabric selection and I also thinks it takes some of the pressure off to make the quilt "perfect". This quilt is gorgeous, I love it.

  28. I spy a lot of recent fabrics in there, I think it has a current feel, now if it were aqua and gray....

    Having said that, I'm not particularly interested in making a quilt that 10 years from now someone will look at and say, "I remember 2014!" I recommend immediately tossing any negative self talk regarding this quilt. It's a beauty.

  29. I see a lot of fabrics in this quilt that I personally own. It's a fun snapshot of all kinds of fabric.
