Genie’s Ugly Quilt ~ In the Bag ~ Ugly Quilt Challenge



What in the world am I to do with this collection?
Well, I finally decided to do a modified pinwheel lap quilt.
These are the fabric pieces Julie Keeler sent me. It has taken me such a long time to get started, but school is out now and I have some free time to play.



I have ripped seams and ripped trying to get the points to meet perfectly...sure, Genie. Give up! Sew a button in the center of each one if the points to not meet to suit you.

Looking great. Make sure you nest your seams and pin the points. Sew them a thread or two from the actual point and you will have better success at it. Remember we don't live in a perfect world, so there is NO quilt in this world that is perfect either. I think it is looking great so far. Keep up the good work.

Really pretty pinwheels. This will be so pretty when finished. If you don't tell anyone about the points, no one would see them when you're finished! They all blend together. Relax & enjoy.

don't stress about the points...they look great to me!! I like what you did with these fabrics. Very nice.

Yes, don't stress about the points. Just strive for accurate cutting and a scant 1/4 seam and let the points take care of themselves! It looks great!

You did a nice job, I would never have paired those fabrics together! I also did not see the points until it was mentioned, not bad at all!
