I focused my energy this week and finished my ugly quilt top. I don't think it's ugly at all but I expect it will always be called the ugly quilt.
I am really happy with this quilt. It looks a little washed out from the photo. It's so big that I had to take the photo outside. I just love the mottled dark fabrics all together.
I think that the quilting can make the contrast between the darks and brights stand out even more. Of course who knows when I will get around to quilting this one.
I had some HST blocks left over so I sorted them into color groups and will make 4 placemants from them.
I have one last HST block to play with. I really do just go into EQ and make up these blocks blind and I think this block is proof of that. It's not much to get excited about and I honestly didn't expect to get much out of this one.
As a straight set it isn't much to get excited about.
Rotated into sets of 4 and it gets a little more intersting. Let's add some color.
Ah, much more interesting!
Flip alternating blocks for something interesting. But it's not interesting enough to make.
Another rotation of alternating blocks and it's much more interesting.
This is the last HSTeria Quilt Along post so I want to do one final (big) giveaway! I want everyone who has participated in the project or made an HST project to link up one of your posts (or photo from a photo sharing site). Next Friday I'll share all of my favorite HST designs from my posts this summer and will select a grand prize winner.
The grand prize package will include a box of hand dyed scraps and a package of my favorite fusible web, Mistyfuse.
