Have you made an “ugly” quilt? What happened…and where is it now?

Post your answer in the comments before noon (PST) on Monday, April 14, for your chance to win. The carefully selected winning answer will be posted on Wednesday, April 16, along with the next question.

Last week’s Quirky Question was, “What was the first quilt block you ever made?” Here’s the winning comment, from Janet:

“Well, I have never let ‘that’s difficult’ stop me. While growing up, on my bed was Grandmother’s Flower Garden made by my Grandmother. At 10 years old, I decided I could do that. So I did. I traced a pattern from my bed quilt and started making hexagon flowers. I made a doll quilt which I still have and when I look at it, I love how brave I was.”

Congratulations, Janet—look for an email about your free eBook.
