Ugly quilt contest

Coincidence?  I think not!

I originally blogged about this quilt on April 2.  I jokingly asked where the next ugly quilt contest was, because I was sure to win.  Lo and behold – I stumbled across this “Ugly Quilt Contest” the other day!  YAY!  Fun!

I had a stack of homespuns from my earliest quilting days and decided to throw them together.  The image in my mind didn’t match what you see before you.  After sewing the first couple of rows together I almost gave up because it is SO DANG UGLY, but I persevered and now the top is done.  My feelings about this quilt have progressed to the point where it is SO DANG UGLY that I’m actually proud of it.  It makes me chuckle.  It will be the first quilt I put on my frame and actually quilt.  Do you know why?  Because I’m not scared of ruining it!  Quilting it could not possibly make this quilt any dang uglier!  It’s a great quilt to learn on!

If you have an ugly quilt, drag it out from under the dog or bring it in from the garage, photograph it, and enter.   If you don’t have a quilt to enter, then go here to vote.   The ballots are scattered on the left hand side, and if you don’t see number 11 (me!) right away keep scrolling down.  Oooh how fun – I can’t wait to see all the ugly quilts!

I voted for you!! For those of you who aren’t sure HOW to vote, click on the Ugly Quilt Contest button. In the left-hand column you’ll see a box for “Which is the ugliest quilt?”. Scroll down to the 3rd set of them and click on #11! Oh, and Peggi, when you finally quilt and finish this you have to name it SO DANG UGLY. In all caps. Seriously!! wpid-Cindi-Signature-small-2010-05-10-17-52.png
