I know you just saw this yesterday but this week I am mostly just quilting on the Ugly Quilt. I’m pretty sure that it will keep that name even though it will be one of my all-time favorite quilts. It’s always been the Ugly Quilt and so it will remain. I have done some snow dyeing and all that fabric is washing out today. Maybe I’ll have some photos tomorrow or Friday.
Last night I hit the half way point on the quilt with the dark patches. The top of this pinwheel marks the middle of the quilt. I think I'll have the background finished this weekend.
I love how it’s looking but I still haven’t decided what I’m going to do in the color patches. I’ve picked the thread but not the design. Each time I roll the quilt I take a few minutes with the purple pen to sketch in some ideas. Nothing has been right yet but I’ll get there.
I am loving the variegated thread and you can see that I’m not searching for perfection. I eyeball the middle of each seam and just try to get the stitching on either side to meet up. It’s looking very organic and I like that. As long as my points meet I am happy.
For those of you participating in the UFO challenge one of the prize options is going to be glass magnets. Patty was the February winner and she picked these. They are going in the mail to her tomorrow.
