My ugly quilt

Natalia from Piece N Quilt is hosting an ugly quilt contest. I think it's a great idea! I've blogged about my ugly quilt before, it's also my first quilt.

I decided to take a new picture of it.

I had clothes made from at least two of these fabrics; maybe my mom can chime in if she remembers making clothes out of these fabrics for us. Or did Grandma make them? I had an outfit (pants and a vest maybe?) made from the turquoise print in the top left corner when I was 5, and lovely pants made from the fuschia/purple color that I remember from 3rd grade. In fact, that's when my mom chopped them off below the knee and made them into super-cute knickers. Come on, I know I'm not the only one that had knickers. These ones had a gold snap at each knee.

Anyway. Back to the contest. You can enter any time between now and May 11. Prizes will be gift certificates to Piece N Quilt. Go here to find out more about entering!

I love your first quilt! I am thinking it is not ugly enough to win the contest! I will help you by not entering my ugly quilts, as they are by far uglier! Good luck;0)

No offense, but I don't think it's ugly AT ALL! I loe it, reminds me of Rosa Pomar's quilts. I am always in awe of people who aren't afraid to really USE bold patterns.

I love your ugly quilt. My grandma made me a quilt out of remnant polyester pieces from clothes she used to make. She made me some knickers at one time or another, I'm sure of it.

sorry, you don't get my vote...i think your first quilt is quite nice!! and pales in comparison to the ugliness of MY first quilt!!

It's totally ugly and not soft at all. However, it is great to take to the fireworks!

Vicki! We've got a couple of quilts around here that look just like that and they are fun to look at and remember the "scary" clothing that we used to wear!

Thanks for entering! :)

I think I need a bigger picture to help me remember the fabrics. Is there any way to blow it up a little more?
