Nobody's Perfect is finally finished!

Using fabrics from Obnoxious Fabric Swaps, the quilt Nobody's Perfect (Even Fabric Designers) has been completed. I even sewed down the binding by hand (and I avoid hand work if possible!).
 The quilt finished up at 76" X 92" 

The girls said I should call it No Thanks, YOU Take It as they both can only see the obnoxious fabrics, not the overall design of the quilt.

I am not sure if you can see the quilting. I quilted a running floral design in the white and just did the rounded outline thing (does it have a name?) in the rest of the block.

For those wondering, the block is a traditional Arkansas Crossroads block.

It is up for vote in The Quilting Gallery's weekly quilt contest, this week the theme is Scrappy. Please head on over there and vote for my quilt!

Having just spend and inordinate amount of time re-organizing my ever blossoming scrap pile I realized that I truly need another scrap busting pattern and this one is just absolutely perfect! I love all the colors and the background fabric totally unifies your quilt! I found some good instructions & am going to put the 2.5" block box by my table & start sewing me some "ugly" 4 patches. LOL! Thanks for sharing your beautiful quilt and a GREAT scrap busting idea!

gorgeous quilt! I have done one similar to this. It's a fun design and you've done it well!

Great quilt! Our Quilts of Valor group gets lots of donations of 'ugly' fabrics, but, cut small and put with other fabrics, they always work out.
