My rectangular zig zag string quilt

On Monday I shared my drama of getting this quilt started. Seriously, I marked a few blocks 5 times!!

Unfortunately, all that work didn't pay off. I think that this is the ugliest quilt I've ever made. I gave up on precision when piecing the top together because I was hating it so much! Ugh.

I picked the colors based on this fabric that I was going to use for the back, but now I don't want to waste it on this quilt. :(

Just ripped up my favorite vintage sheet. Time to start on this quilt!
I'm not sure what it is that I don't like. Does it look too choppy maybe?

I love the back at least...

I'm trying to decide what to do with it. Donate to charity?


  1. Ok, this quilt has pretty colors. Why don't you cut the blocks up and reconfigure them? I think then it would look less planned. Just my thoughts. Good Luck, Jayne

  2. I really like it. But look at what this quilter did with her strings.

  3. hey, i'm with suzanne - i'll take it! dang, she said it first!


Thanks for dropping by. Is something on your mind?
