But it is uuuuuuuuug-LY!
So here it is...
How to Make an Ugly Quilt (Part 1) - The Quilt Top
Find any greeny coloured fat quarters that you have in your stash, whether it's greeny-yellow, greeny-brown, greeny-green, greeny-blue, or in some cases just plain blue. Do whatever you have to do to get enough fabric to make the size of the quilt you are trying to make (plus a bit more for seam allowances). Don't worry if the colours don't match or if the patterns clash or if the fabrics don't even look nice together, we're going for ugly, remember?
Cut those fat quarters up into rectangles of roughly the same size, no need to be too pedantic, no need to iron the fabric first - near enough is good enough.
Now sew those suckers together...
For maximum ugliness, randomly place the fabrics together, with no thought for what the final outcome might look like.
Sew enough rectangles side by side to get the desired width of the quilt. Then start again on the next row. REPEAT until you run out of fabric.
Don't pin - pinning is for wimps.
Don't press seams - pressing is for nerds.
OK, now it's time to sew the rows together...
Sew the rows like brickwork, to hide the fact that your edges don't line up.
And there you have it, an ugly quilt top!
Too ugly? OK...
TIPS on how to make your quilt less ugly:
1. Choose fabrics that look good together
2. Measure carefully
3. Cut carefully
5. Press seams
