|the ugliest little hexagon of all|
So I have some of the bundle strewn throughout the quilt, but that picture there at the top is the hexagon area that is the most cringe-worthy, a gorgeous Valori Wells fabric surrounded by random bundle fabric. The truth is though, that every time I see that part of my quilt I will have fond memories about my first Quilt-a-long, and the lessons I learned from it.

There are parts of my quilt I love though. I know it could've had better movement from light to dark, more attractive fabrics, lovely dainty prints incorporated into it, or a cohesive color scheme. Nevertheless, I have it laying out on the living room's hardwood floor so I can look at it when I walk through the house. Usually I walk in and find it crumpled into a pile of sorts, showing that the cats were having their fun. In those times I see this gorgeous mess of blues, greens and yellows, and I get excited for when it's ready to all go together.
I've seen some beautiful progress on other people's quilts, but I've decided there's no reason being envious of their skill and color sense when I have my own je ne sais quoi!
