It appears from one picture that the stars were hand pieced and possibly at a later time someone else sewed them together by machine. I think you would get a great deal of satisfaction if you were to finish it. But, please don't round file it.

I agree! I would take the sashing off and put new sashing and border. Think it would turn out great! IMHO

I would make some throw pillows out of it, or maybe a beach throw.

That is an absolute treasure! If you don't want it, I would happily take it off your hands. Send me a PM.

You could take it apart and frame each block and give to quilter friends as a gift for their quilt space. A little piece of history and inspiration.
I've also seen some lovely primitive christmas ornaments from old star blocks.

Well they tried!

Just finish it up and donate it. Someone who has nothing will love it. They won't care about points not matching.

Use it as an example of what not to do....LOL!!! Love it....you made me chuckle...see it did do some good!

I was given an old quilt once, I donated it to a private school for their fundraising auction and it brought in $275!! Or you could donate it to a guild who will finish it and donate it to a charity.
If it were mine, I might replace the border with a single fabric. I think it is adorable, and possibly someone's first attempt at the star pattern :)
