This is my lovely entry.... back when Stack N Whack quilts first became popular, I just had to make one. I thought this duck fabric would be cute for a friend's lake cottage.

This was the result!! UGH!

I just didn't like it at all!! So it sits and awaits its fate in my to-do pile..... 

What do you think??? Does it deserve a vote in the ugly quilt contest?

  1. Isn't it a funny contest! I don't think yours is so bad either...but it would be nice to win a prize! Good luck!

  2. Well I'm not a fan of strong greens so you have me on this one but, other than that, I think it's a pretty stunning quilt! But good luck anyway!

  3. Well if you got this much done I think you could finish it and maybe wash it will a little bleach to give it a faded, old look. Call it a vintage quilt!! I bet your friend would love it at her cottage.

  4. Oh ouch..lol. You got my vote girl :)

  5. LOL! You never know unless you try, right? Really, though I don't think it's so bad. I've certainly done worse.

  6. I actually have a quilt titled "The Ugly Quilt." I've been meaning to post photos of it on my blog, mostly as a cautionary tale on many fronts! Your's isn't so bad, but enter away! : D
