The Ugly Quilt

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been commissioned to make two quilts, one of which was out of fabrics that just weren't my style. Even though I like the pattern, I tended to refer to this one as "the ugly quilt" while referring to the other as the gray quilt. Well, maybe Ugly Duckling is a more apt name, because check it out:


To say it exceeded my expectations is an understatement.


I'm hoping to get the back made today, the basting done tomorrow, and start quilting it this weekend. I still haven't decided, though, whether to do straight lines or some type of free motion.

The other quilt, the gray one, is also coming along well. I'll hopefully have some pics of it next week.

Linking up to Freshly Pieced for Work in progress Wednesday.
