Cafe' Latte Friday Finish -- The Ugly Quilt -- OMG!

My Cafe' Latte quilt is complete.  It was originally called the Ugly Quilt because I obtained the fabrics during a swap.  Here's   pic of it hanging on the clothes line where I shoot  lot of pics of quilts since my husband bull dozed the old clothes line area.  There was too much shade yesterday morning.

I'm happy to say my OMG for August is complete!  I'll be linking up at Elm Street Quilts later in the month.  Woohoo!!!

I moved to the grassy hill to get a better shot...  Ick... the shadow of me holding my phone is there.

Ick... now there's a shadow of the bushes in the top...  I should have brought my other camera.

Oky... getting better.

The one below shows the bottom driveway (which will be bull dozed s well some day)  It has the old corn crib full of old tractor tires that needs to come down this fall.  My son and I don't do it because my husband saves certain parts of old buildings to use inside the new house.  It's so cool how he saves an old door here and a hinge there.  His handywork is gorgeous...  Somedey I'll heve pics of ll that.  We are very sentimental!

I love the pieced back.  The green binding pops on both sides.  I'm so glad I went out of my comfort zone and picked the green!  This quilt measures 85.5" x 100".

I searched back to October 14, 2012!!! and found these pictures for the Ugly Fabric Challenge.

Here are the fabrics I started out with thaarrived from my swap partner...

I added these and just a couple of mauve's/maroons to it...

I'm linking up with Myra at Busy Hands Quilts for  Finished Or Not Friday.

  1. Looks like a great quilt for snuggling under with a cup of coffee and good book. Warm and toasty!

  2. That turned out so well. It's hard to call a fabric ugly when it makes such a nice quilt.

  3. I absolutely LOVE how this quilt turned out, Kathy!!
