The #1 is my UGLY that defines why many people don't like scrap quilts + other issues
#2 is my recent Mini that was inspired by all the beautiful one' that have been shown.
#3 is an Amish mini I did a long time ago and I dug out of the "Good will" bin.

I don't know why you would ever call the scrap quilt ugly. It's right up my alley and I love it.

Oh my, I agree with Calliope. Far from ugly,the scrap quilt is "BEE-YOU-TEE-FUL"! The pattern lines are distinct and the positioning of all royal blue blocks adds punch. I am a big-time fan of scrappy and I really do think this is very pretty! :-) Love the braid too, another favourite and one I'd like to do.

ME TOO!!! When I saw it I said WOW!
When I first started quilting I did not care for scrappy but I love it now.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Your version of ugly is my version of cuddling up in and napping on the couch. I love it too.

You've been one busy gal.

If your 'ugly' needs a home I'll gladly pay for shipping - I love it...everything about it SCREAMS, I need to live at Digger's house~

Jayne, I like the quilt you think is ugly, too. Is there a pattern for it? I've recently come into possession of a box of 2 1/2" squares and this strikes my fancy.

My first thought was "If that is considered ugly, I must have horrible taste." I think it is beautiful and agree, I would love to cuddle up with it.

Jayne, I like all your projects! That braid looks really tiny...is it machine pieced? I like the scrappy one, too. It looks like you planned the layout well. And I love the colors in the Amish one!

I love your scrap quilt! Just the right quilt to curl up under and read a good book. :-)

Best to you,

I think you did a great job on these Jayne! I have a hard time with giving up control to make a scrappy quilt, but I really like it.

It's amazing what you can do with the simple square.

I love scrappy, and I love the arrangement of lights and darks.

There is a wonderful diamond pattern that is eye catching!

The braid is also on my "To Do" list.

I appreciate your comments. I really like scrappy quilts a lot but I have issues with My ugly and some of the fabric I used. There is a major mistake that I decided not to correct as I already had the borders on and about to sandwich when I noticed it.
Sharon the pattern came from More Nickel Quilts and is called Streak of Lightening. The blocks are:(1) 4 1/2x 2 1/2" pc. with (2) 2 1/2" pcs.. On one block the long pc. is dark and the other block the long pc. is light. Does that make any sence?
The braid is pieced on a wash away foundation. The strips a 1/4". It measure 11x 12.5". I had planned on making it a year or so ago but my interest was stimulated with all the beautiful ones people were showing recently.
The Amish picture has a wooden frame and the blocks are 4".
Ugly doesn't have a home yet, I will keep you in mind digger.

Yes, it makes sense, Jayne. Thank you.....I'll probably draw it out.
