I do not understand any of this but I sure do think it is beautiful! Hugs, Suzanna
It is not an ugly quilt, it is a retro quilt. It may not be an "Art" quilt, but it has it's own beauty and serves the original purpose of the quilt. It saves resources by using materials on hand. Well done!
I like the quirkiness of it. It is unique. Anything that has as much time in it as this quilt, is beautiful.
Love your crazy quilt! Instead of sewing on paper, I cut squares of batting and sew on that, gives it a quilted look. You can decorate the seams at the same time and have a completed block at the end.
That is how I would have done them ITH.
I love it and such a great use of scraps. I usually make rugs with mine but I have finished a top that is ready to long arm all made of scraps.
Not ugly at all- there's enough of the purple-ish blue, navy and that hot pink to tie it all together. And I bet you're thrilled to have made a dent in your scrap bag.
Not a very big dent!
LOL! I think the only way to deal with my stash is to set fire to it! :-/
Not ugly! Useful. Reminds of the quilts my grandmother made. Nothing was wasted and they kept you warm at night. I could usually pick out some of my clothes in the squares.
I don't think it is at all ugly. It makes me think of one I had when I was a child when nothing was ever wasted.
I very much like the result and your questions are very helpful to those of us out here sorting scraps. My quilting buddy gives me her scraps that are too small and I use them in applique. It's all in the perspective.
Actually I love it and do not find it ugly at all. I think it is very cheerful
Ugly scraps or not, it looks well harmonised now that everything is stitched together.
I once was at a 3-week weaving retreat (back in 1961, actually) where we were asked to pick , from a huge grab box) a piece of fabric in a colour we hated and make a collage using it and come up with something we liked. Never forgot that lesson, although I have not got many scraps in a colour I don't like :)
I often use 21 cm blocks a lot for the same reason.
Great minds think alike! I have to say that many of these fabrics don't really float my boat, but I do know where they all came from.
Looks great, I make a lot of rugs from scraps and have a quilt from them that is ready for the long arm. Great use of scraps :)
