Thanks Thea! I really had fun fussy cutting all that ugly fabric to make the kaleidoscope blocks. It was always a surprise how they would actually look when pieced. Thank you for challenging me to do something with that ugly fabric that I had had lying around for some time. Now I have 2 quilts (totally different) made from the same fabric. Pretty neat!

Nana & Marilyn - thanks for the comments - I am proud of this one and sorry Nana but I think I'll keep it. If I change my mind I'll let you know.
Wow Carol! That is a gorgeous quilt.
Fabulous, Carol! Thanks for posting the picture of it!
Carol, that is one nice ugly quilt.....I really like it.
Your "messed up" quilt is beautiful. Using the kaleidescope blocks is brilliant. It looks better than if you had used only 5 fabrics total.
I really like your "messed up" ugly fabric quilt. Very nice.
Carol W, you made a pretty ugly quilt! LOL Love the kaleidescope blocks and the stars between!
How can I get to the ugly quilt thread? I went into contests but there is only the designers challenge. I would really love to see all these "ugly" quilts. When does the contest end and the judging begin? Thank you.
Bonnie I found the thread and bumped it to the top for you. It is the one called Ugly Fabric Quilt contest..Pictures Only.
Nana and all - I need to teach you how to use forums I guess...lol
Since I do not want anyone posting anything in the thread but pictures and I will not even post there... to find it and it will always be on the first page...
When you open up the Forum page...if you will go down below and you will see
Browse Disussions - right below the latest 5 discussions - you will see THE QUILTING WORLD bold title
click on the Quilting world within that subtitle...
Now you will be on the page where the Ugly Fabric Contest Pictures Only thread is...
so in the future if anyone needs to find it please send them to this:
Please No ONE BUMP it up - I want pictures ONLY!!! We have 3 judges who I want to be able to go through and look at just the pictures...
Thank you very much for help in this matter...
Thea - I guess you will just have to excuse us. After all we are quilters not computer geniuses :o) We really do try but well.......... Just knock us upside the head once in a while and get us back in line. By the way- best wishes for tomorrow. I will be praying for you.
Sorry about that Thea. I think I was having a whole Senior Day that day and not just Senior Moments. It has been like that alot lately. May be I have Spring Fever....LOL>
Nana - thank you for the help. Just couldn't figure out how to get there. But I am straight now.
Althea - sorry about that. I just kept hearing about all those ugly quilts but couldn't find the pics. I am still learning the site.
