New Bed Quilt

My latest quilt is one I made trying to match a rug in our bedroom. I really like the pattern, by Lella Boutique, but my choice of colors, and the idea that it might look good with the rug.....well, no. Neither. But, the hubby liked it, so for now we will keep it. We have enough beds in this house to use it. Guess that is one thing I've always liked about quilting as a hobby. You have something useful even if it doesn't turn out pretty.

He thought it was great. He's definitely a fan of my quilting hobby.

In January I pulled a bunch of scraps to make these two little beauties. One can never go wrong with a few baby quilts on hand. One of my earlier posts also shows these.

And of course, I had to dress the twins in them.

Any of you ever made an ugly quilt? I'm guessing, if you've quilted very long, the answer is yes. Now, I've got a blue and white classic design in my head, so I think that will be the next bed quilt. And after that I need to make one for a housewarming gift. They haven't broken ground yet so I thankfully I have a few months to get it done.
