Ugly quilt is FINALLY quilted and done!

Not sure how many of you remember our "Ugly" fabric challenge at the Quilt and Needle (www.thequiltandneedle.com/forum) I received a fq from Pat that was outdoorsy (is that a word?) and swampy and pretty ugly ... at least to us ladies. It was the perfect fabric to inspire me to make a quilt for my brother. I finished the top...oh... two or so years ago and started the back but just never quite finished the quilt.
I wanted the back to be more modern ... and to use up all the leftover ugly pieces I had in my stash. My brother is an outdoor kind of guy... hunting and fishing etc. I also threw in a few orphan blocks that were in my stash.
SO, check off another UFO from the list :)
Here's my post from WAY back... had just finished the top:

An excellent man's quilt, just super! Love how you pieced the back.

Excellent finish! I love the front, beautifully done, and the back is so interesting. It all fits!

Doing a graduation quilt for my son, could you please email me with any pattern information. Love this two sided quilt idea.


I've been slowly pushing myself back to quilting. My back pain gets terrible in the mid day so early morning is the best time to sew.  ...
