As I've been making my fungly blocks, using the Jacks on Six block pattern, I keep being told my choices are fun, but not ugly. So I keep looking for uglier fabric to use. I haven't been very successful in that search. And then I realized why!! Many of them have already become a fungly quilt using a different block. It all began about a year plus ago....
I decided to make a snuggle quilt using the "unloved" and "oh my gosh that's ugly" fabrics that lingered at my house. Betsy hates to be left out and happily supplied a bunch of 6" squares of her 'uglies'.
And you know, of course, that I can never play exactly by the rules, even when they are MY rules...LOL. So I cut a few 'focus' or 'interst' type fabrics in 5" squares and tucked them into the mix also. And they are all directional, so the quilt has a definite top and bottom, unless you want polka dancing pics standing on their heads *VBS*
Coming soon a peek at the backing I made on Tuesday. Lets just say I had some fairly(?)bright oranges and blues I wanted to move along.
I have just one side of Haileys quilt to finish, and in true Finn fashion, I just HAD to start quiting the hourglasses. I have all the vertical lines quilted, and will be moving on to the horizontal lines a bit later *VBS* We have 6 more quilters joining us in the UFO challenge, and I'll get those names added yet today. How's everyone doing? Are you off and running?? I am *VBS*, and I know for sure that Clare has finished on of hers! You'll be seeing quite a few new names and blogs to check out as the list continues to grow.
