Why did I spend $1.00 on this?
 
5 Attachment(s)
  1. Every kind of fabric under the sun,
  2. no 2 blocks are square
  3. no points meet
  4. no seams match
  5. stitches by hand and machine, no rhyme or reason.
  6. no overall design
I don't even know why I bought it and now i don't know what to do with it. Maybe the round file?
Any suggestions?:eek:

You felt sorry for it?

as a lesson? that's cheap ;-)

Cut it up and make a beloved teddy bear, rabbit, etc for a child or not-for-profit. :)

I'd finish it and give it to charity. Someone put some love into it and you will too.

You can square it up if you work at it. It's a treasure! I still have a few we found in my grandmother's attic and I treasure every quilt I've made from them. I'll gladly send you a $ and a Priority envelope if you don't want it.

I believe every quilt has value. Even the ugly or wonky ones. Because someone, at sometime, put time, energy and love into it. Every quilt tells a story. If you have the time (and patience) to take apart and redo what needs to be redone that would be wonderful. If not, perhaps you know someone that does. 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.

and someone made it with love ....
Do you want to sell it for $1.00 plus postage?

DebraK 06-20-2012 09:12 AM

oh, I have to agree. you can see the effort. that is the story. I like the way you (abd) tell stories, so I am sure something cool is going to come of this ;-)

oops again. this was supposed to go under Stacey's post

I find it endearing. Maybe you did, too. I would take the borders off and reborder it in a yellow flour-sack style print and put it back together. YOU can redeem it.
I found an old quilt in an airport hangar with a motor wrapped in it. I took it home, and gently washed the grease out of it and folded it to look its best and laid it on top of my filing cabinet with the 72' width, hanging over the sides. EVERY day, I look at that lovely old quilt and figure I gave her a new home.
Just like a stray cat. Doing that, makes us both happy and blessed.
