Ugly Duckling

 I'm going to call this little quilt my Ugly Duckling.  I'm not crazy about it that is why I only made 65 blocks.  Late last night after Richard went to bed I went upstairs and sewed it all together.
 Now I just need to find an ugly border fabric to go on it.  This will be used on my little antique table that I have on my porch.  The current little quilt that I have on it is extremely faded from use over the years.  I'm glad to have it to this point.  After I sew a border on it, I will put it in the pile to be quilted.  BTW...you can see the hair bows that I have made for the baby hanging there too. 
 I also sewed another strip on all 30 blocks of my Colorful Scraps quilt.  I plan on working on this more today as Richard will be working all day.  
 "Clear the Freezer" for today....chicken.  This will be fried chicken along with veggies and bread. 
 I'll post a photo of my Ugly Duckling once I get the border on it.

I absolutely LOVE this little quilt! It is on my list to make some day. I already have a rainbow scrap challenge quilt for this year, but may make this one for the next couple of years for RSC and l/e quilt.

I like the layout for the "ugly" quilt LOL, it really isn't that ugly you know it is just the color that you don't like I bet. Once you get done with it you could always give it away and someone will like it!

Smart idea to go through the freezer. I am bad about that but I need to dig in there and start pulling some things to use instead of going shopping. Thanks for the reminder.

Kristie,

I don't think it's ugly at all. In fact with the constant cheddar fabric it seems very vintage. I love it!

I, too, think you "Ugly Duckling" has a very vintage look. Quite charming, to me. : )
