Default Forest Hollow

I bought the Forest Hollow patterns by McKenna Ryan prior to 2009 (for $166 Cdn... good grief!) ... and thought I would make and gift it to my Sis who would turn 65 in 2009.... nope...didn't happen..(and in the meantime she downsized into a teensy place) ... SO.... April 18, 2016 I finally got the top finished.... I really did NOT like the pattern... the instructions had you make this little portion and set it aside...and then that little portion and set it aside.... anyway.... I decided this was the year that little sucker would get finished! I have machine quilted it and now.... the dilemma .... what to do with a 57" square quilt/wallhanging ? I have walked around our home with the measuring tape.... well... maybe it could go there...or here.... oh well... maybe it will live in the closet for awhile! :-) Also.... I did not cut away the fusible in the larger shapes, so it is not a cuddly quilt.[ATTACH=CONFIG]595871[/ATTACH]

Is is a beautiful piece. Can you use it for a bed topper just for decoration? At least you learned what you don't like about these projects. I hope you find a special place to display it.

Your dog blended right in with the quilt! The quilt is beautiful. So is the dog.

Is there a reason you can't give it to your sister as a lap quilt?

When I have a beauty, with no home, I give it to a charity that has a silent auction so it goes to someone who really wants it and the money goes to a charity I care about. (as opposed to the local shelters who hands it to the next person arriving.) Just a thought. But it is truly a beauty!

Using it for a topper for decoration seems like a great idea to me. I have a hand embroidered bird quilt that is hiding in my cupboard for the same reasons as yours. I am going to follow Rhonda K.'s advice and use it as a topper as well. BTW. I love your quilt, you have a lot of patience to finish it. Thank you for sharing.
