What Uglies?

I have not been a very active participant in the Challenge due to a back injury that has side-lined me for many, many months.  I did get two projects done using my uglies and I love both of them. The first,
was this baskets quilt. I had hoped to use all the uglies in it but that's not the direction the top took! I love that I was able to use that border fabric (that I have been hoarding for years) and had just enough for the borders.
I then decided to make another top using the rest of the uglies. Those blocks range from sixteen-inch down to four-inch, and used up the rest of the fabric.
I don't think my kitchen floor shows the tops at their best but I am thrilled I was able to actually bend down to lay them out.
More pictures and info at my blog if you are interested.  It was great sewing and sharing projects with you all! Thanks for organizing this, Suzanne.
