IT WAS ...

...quilt group in Congleton last night... and what a wonderful night it was xx We had a speaker , her name is Janet Keenan (www.lemontreequilts.com ) She made us laugh, she was inspirational, she showed LOTS and LOTS of show and tell, she held us spell bound for well over an hour!! There was laughter and gasps and LOTS of fun xx Check out her web-site... you will NOT be disappointed xx

Remember this fabric?... It is the UGLY FABRIC that I received from Gun ,in Sweden.


This challenge has been SOOO much fun...AND NOW I have this...


OH YES!! I finished today ... I have a cushion...



AND a quilt...


I hand quilted the flowers .. inspired by the ones in the garden...




The labels on the back are circles..





to reflect the circles in the centre of the Dresden plates..


NOW have to find the next project... mmm wonder what it will be! He-He xx

Keep smiling

Diane xx

Your cushion and your quilt both look great - so much for fugly fabric!

Great results from your ugly fabrics. I really do like what you did for the cushion. Janet's website is very good, thanks for the link.

Wow, those look great! I think I am going to cut into my ugly fabric this weekend.

Hi - I think all fuglies can be made to shine in the right setting :o)

Great finish! I think you can hardly call them fuglies now!

Diane, that Dresden quilt is just wonderful and the pillow too. You are a really good quilter. I want to make pillows soon and I'll write if I need help. Great job. You inspire me but right now I'm enjoying cleaning this log home.

Goes to prove that no fabric is ever really fugly.
