    Use the focal squares for potholders.

    I think the quilt is pretty. But, more than that, I think KSellers just made you a great offer!

    I would give it to charity, that is if no family member wants it. Let KSellers do the quilting for you, you donate it, and everyone is happy. Our local food pantry takes quilts, too. People who need food, need warm blankets, too.

    I like the colors. I would suggest finishing it and donating to American Red Cross disaster unit. Something warm in the coming winter months would have to be the most beautiful thing in the world. After the April 2011 tornadoes here in Alabama, Red Cross was begging for blankets, after Katrina...likewise.

    I made a top a long time ago that I had put away because I did not like it. I ended up using it as the backing to another quilt and it worked out great. This way I did not waste the money or the efford. If the new top is a different size, you can adjust the back by adding or cutting off.

    I think it is pretty. Someone in a nursing home would be happy to receive it. Nice of KSellers to offer to quilt it for you.

    finish it to the best of your ability. don't tell anyone what is wrong with it, and chances are they will never know. only God makes perfect things.

    i think it is very pretty. i like the colors. and quilts will grow on you once they are quilted and done.

    I love your quilt, but since you don't I think your doing the right thing by sending it off to someone that will finish it off and then get it donated to a good place. I am sure there are lots of people that would love that quilt.

    I have said it before and I will say again, Quilters are the most kindest and generous group of people there are, thank you KSellers for doing that, some charity will be so grateful for such a lovely quilt.

    What do you ladies suggest?
    Have had this happened to me too. I finished the tops (only and YES this has happened more than once), then I cut it up into a something else. Strip quilt or Crazy quilt. By the time your done, it will be something different and you just might love it. Good luck

    I think it is a lovely quilt. I love blue roses tho! Even have a tattoo of a blue rose on my shoulder - a gift from my dh several years ago. Hope you can find someone or something to give the quilt to.

    I think it is beautiful. Maybe some one will trade or buy it from you. List it here on the baord. I am sure I am not the only one that thinks it is very pretty. Lovely colors and layout.
