The "Ugly Quilt"
My brother's girl friend asked if I would make a quilt if she got the
material. I didn't know how to say no, and ended up making the quilt. It
was the ugliest fabric ever. Sweatshirt and velor type fabric. The
ugliest colors imaginable. I got to choose the pattern. My "sewing
buddy" (dog) wouldn't even come in the room while I was sewing it. My
poor dog gave her seal of approval on all the quilts to that date,
always laying on some portion of it while I was working on them. My son
and daughter would tell me to put the "ugly quilt" away while they were
home. It took forever but I finally finished it, she loved it. I have
taken pictures of most of the quilts I have made and have them in an
album. It is dubbed the "ugly quilt" in the album. When my brother and
his friend broke up, she got custody of the quilt. I made him a new one
for his 50th birthday, he mentioned I was right the other one was ugly.
