    Amen. Quilting is supposed to be fun? Rewarding? Satisfying?

    You need to enjoy yourself. Pass them on or trade it on this board for something you need or would like.

    Why not find some one that has a top they don't want to finish and you could Trade tops. You could trade it back when the tops are done or Keep them.

    Same with me....started (again) in my 50's and can't stand to have UFO's around.

    I agree with that- it should be fun, not too much work- we have enough things that we are obligated to.

    Quilting is fun not stressful. Put it aside and start on something enjoyable and fun to do.

    If you don't like doing these mini's, stop. Keep the fabric and pass on the patterns to someone who likes to do that small work. Or blow the patterns up to full size and make them for a quilt you would like. You know, minis are just shrunk blocks!
