I sure like how this quilt is turning out. As Bonnie says, if the fabric still looks ugly you've just not cut it small enough. There are lots of ugly fabrics here but I think the quilt is going to be striking. Today I sewed on the inner border and the surrounding row of larger blocks. I put it back on the design wall and cut strips for the second border to see how it looks. I'm going to cut a set of navy strips also to see which one I like best. Then it'll be back to making the little broken dishes blocks. I don't know if I have enough small triangle squares or not. If not I think I might add another border then make the outside the larger size blocks. I won't know until I get that far and decide how it looks. It's a fun adventure - not knowing how the finished quilt will look and designing as I go. It's been awhile since I've done that, and I'd forgotten how much fun it is.
