In looking back through my records, it appears I started this quilt sometime in early-to-mid 2011. I have no pictures of the first iteration. It was ugly. The second idea came from Kim Brackett’s Scrap Basket Sensations book. I really liked the design, but it was still ugly. Maybe not ugly to other people, but ugly to me. How could I finish an ugly quilt?
Well, I couldn’t finish an ugly quilt, but this isn’t an ugly quilt any more.
Bright colors helped.
The perfect back helped. The quilting helped.
It’s all good and it’s all done.
ps–I am sorry to say that I cannot tell you what that perfect backing fabric is. It came in a hand-me-down box and I loved it when I first saw it, but wondered how I would ever use it. Then this quilt happened. Some things are just meant to be, I guess.
