Thread: A simple quilt I'm progress for six months and I don't know what to do with it...

    Exclamation A simple quilt I'm progress for six months and I don't know what to do with it...

    I had a beautiful pansy FQ in my stash and another one yard of a different pansy print, I matched a few more FQs from my stash and designed this quilt to use these fabrics up. I also wanted to practice HST and flying geese in the process so I came up with this. I wasn't too fond of the quilt top, but thought I'll proceed to quilt it anyway. Well, that was back in May, I quilted and absolutely hated the quilting I did, I stared at it for a couple of days and then decided to rip the quilting and redo..to this date I don't know why since I have no plans for the quilt. So I spent the last six months ripping this quilt, five minutes here, and ten minutes there ( a very BORING process,lol) and I finally finished ripping the quilting. So last week, I decided I wanted to practice swirl quilting on it (hubby suggested that since this one is already a redo maybe I should do some quilting that I am comfortable with, so I won't be tempted to rip again, lol) but in my head I thought I am just going to roll with it and just accept whatever it ends up being. And so I did, I am fine with the way it turned out, even though it is not all correct, it is better than the first quilting, so with that outcome I am pleased. And ever supportive hubby declared the quilting my best yet isn't he nice? So I bound the quilt and it is ready for use, except I don't know what to do with it, lol. It is 47" square, what do you think? Does it make a good baby quilt?

    Sure, it's fine for a baby quilt! It's adorable. Or, you could donate it to a women's shelter...or any organization that gives comfort to kids...hospital, church, police, etc. Your quilting is great!

    It would make a cute table topper. Baby Quilt, right size for that and it's really cute. Lap quilt for watching tv. Send it to my house I'll use it if you can't find a use !!

    A table topper was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw it, too. Love the colors.

    It is perfect for a baby, he/she will love the bright colors. Good job!

    Stick it in your stash and the next time you need to "send flowers" give them this quilt instead. I do this a great deal and the quilts always seem to be appreciated.

    Great quilt! You could use it as a wall hanging, a table topper, or a baby quilt. Whatever its use, it will be loved!!

    This is pretty and colorful, which I think would be great for a baby. I can just see a child sitting in the middle of it, or lying on their tummy and looking at all the colors, and trying to pick the flowers up.

    I do know what you mean, though, about not loving something and taking out all the quilting. I started to do the same but my whole family GASPED! Thankfully they saved me from spending all that time. My granddaughter asked me if she could have it, so I will now finish it and let her do whatever with it. It is a wall hanging size.

    You have a wonderful support! Yes, it is a cool idea. I do that, take it apart until I am satisfied. Looks great!

    That is adorable. The colors are unusual for pansy prints and it is an unexpected surprise.

    I usually hang my baby quilt/wallhanging size on one of two places in my home until I need a gift or until I have lots more to hang...then I bring it down, wash, label for gift, wrap and give...the hangings are really the same size, basically and i'm not much for 'cutesy' for babies...i like to give bright and dark colors for kids' quilts so they are more practical.
