    I don’t think these quilts are all that ugly. I would rather make an ugly quilt that got used and loved on than a beautiful quilt that was never used because it was too beautiful and fancy.

  3. Thanks Michelle, for holding this contest so we could share our “less than perfects”!

  4. Congrats (?) to all of the winners! But dang, I should have entered, I’m sure I could have outdone everyone ;) I guess some of us were just too modest to show our potential winners..ha ha. Actually, you ladies were all braver than most of us and you should be so proud of that. And hey, those quilts aren’t half bad. And there ‘bad half’ is not half as bad as some of my own good halfs on some days ;)

    Congrats to the winners and for bringing these out of the closet to show us at the quilting gallery. Makes us realize that first attempts and our own opinions on our work are better then we think – so enjoy your quilting journeys – as they will only get better and better.

  7. I just visited your Ugly Quilt contest for the first time. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder because I REALLY liked this one below!! I wonder what happened to it if she never gave it to her niece? I’d hang it in my house! It sings and zings just like the jazz my husband plays.

    I made this for my niece who loves music. It was so ugly, I just couldn’t give it to her. I will not tell you who I got the idea from because it would embarrass them.
