Is it possible to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear? So what makes an ugly quilt? Ugly fabric? Poor piecing? Doesn’t lie flat and is crooked? Yes, this one had it all. I saw no reason to go to the trouble of making it into a quilt. Not worth it.
I’m guessing the fabrics are from the 70’s. At least there’s no double knit!I wasn’t going to do anything with it. But then I had to consider that it was hand pieced by my sister-in-law’s grandmother. It has sentimental value. So I decided to finish it, add some wide borders (fabric I found in my stash) and make it into a bed quilt for my brother and his wife. It’s not so bad. Tops always look better with quilting.
