December Quilt Group

A quick note on the ugly fabric challenge of last June…Kathleen gave us each a piece of this fabric, (well…not each of us, because a few people found the fabric a little overwhelming…) with the challenge that we needed to bring back a finished quilt in December.

So yesterday we met at our house for the reveal.  First they trooped up to check out the re-done sewing room

  1. I like the ugly fabric. I think it’s cheery and very playful! The quilts are all wonderful, but the quilt that brought the out loud ” wow” was the Dr. Seuss quilt. I’m still under its spell… The appliqué is so beautiful , I love applique on quilts, just don’t like doing it. Merry Christmas! 🙂
