Uglies and Others

Posted by on March 13, 2012 in blocks | 5 comments

I’ve seen so many beautiful fabrics in everyone’s blocks.  Mine are another story–the fabrics were randomly chosen from some scraps and often represent those that I’ve passed over in the past … maybe my “uglies and others” can be the quiet blocks in the winners’ quilts that allows other blocks to shine.

I couldn’t resist playing on the design wall and rotating some blocks to see what would happen.

Sophie's 9 Scrappy Triangles

I saw another interesting layout of similar blocks on another design wall here: Triangles.



  1. they work for me! I sure hope iI win them!


  2. I don’t see a single ugly fabric in there!

  3. When the blocks are all together, they will all look gorgeous, but I don’t see any “uglies” there…

  4. I love this layout – it looks the “barn-raising” done with the log cabin blocks. How neat. I have’nt made any of these blocks yet, but this layout is a real inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

  5. This is a great layout – hope I win and can use it!
