"Ugly" Quilt

I'm on a roll! Ever since I put together the Valentine-y quilt last week, I have been itching for more, More, MORE!! I dug out a charm pack of fabrics from one of Amy Butler's lines (I LOVE her fabrics and simply cannot resist buying them!!), and started going to town! It was another invent-as-you-go quilt, and I love how it turned out:

I only call it "ugly" because the combination is rather, well, INTERESTING. Consequently, no one else *I* know would love to have this quilt for their baby girl, so... Looks like my baby girl gets another quilt!!

Here's a close-up of some of the fabulous fabrics. And Kitty. Kitty is just CERTAIN that every quilt I make is for HER. She is a very quilty cat. She loves climbing under them and waiting for some unsuspecting passerby to get close enough for her to jump out at!

This is so cool! I am seriously intimidated by sewing quilts, I also love the one you have posted with the boys and girls along the edge. Where do you find Amy Butler fabric for a good deal? I have a fabric crush on her stuff but can't get it locally.

Ha ha, I totally do that to my boys too... for the quilts that are too ugly (or, ahem, unique) to go to anyone else!

Love the "ugly" quilt! I laughed when I read about Kitty thinking all quilts are for her since my baby (pup) Pepe thinks all fabric objects in the house are his. Even if I'm sitting in a chair hand-quilting, he will lay on the one teensy corner on the floor and look up at me with his sad eyes to ask, "mommy, when will you be done with my blankie?"
