My fabrics

I haven't posted the fabrics I've received! I'm sorry! I'm still trying to decide what to do with them!

Here is my finished quilt.  I think it looks WAY better than I had hoped.  I also decided to make it my first project for free motion quilting.  Although I certainly can improve with practice, I was satisfied with my effort.  I had fun pushing myself to learn new skills.  I'll post another photo that is a little more close up.

Ta-Da!!! It is finished!

My Ugly Fabric quilt is finished!  What do you think?  I used up every bit of the fabric I got and only added the bright pink border and the backing.

The flowers are raw edge applique and then I quilted flower petals around each layer.  Here is a close up of the flower.

I have really had fun designing the quilt and plan to donate it to a local retirement home.  It will make a perfect wheelchair lap quilt.

Thanks Colorado Lady for hosting this challenge.  Can't wait for next year!
