    I have a small quilt fast turning into a UFO because I don't know what to do with it.I used mostly charm squares that were a gift.
    Not my colors,so don't want a table mat or wall hanging.It's about 20x20". Any ideas?

    Colors aren't true in pic.Unpressed

    Save it for a Doll Quilt Swap. If need be, applique something large in the center and it should pull the eye away from the rest.

    I love it. Put a border on it and use it as a lap quilt or a picnic quilt.

    Well, *I* would give it to my daughter to be used as a baby doll quilt. You could add a few borders and gift it to a new baby in your life...?

    Donate it to your local hospital's nursery or to the local law enforcement agencies to give to children. Border, sandwich, and quilt it for them if it's really not one you like. I think it's beautiful but I really like scrappy.

    I think it's really cute! I vote doll quilt, or add a few borders and donate it for a baby quilt... If you know anyone having a baby soon it would make a great shower gift!

    It would make a wonderful baby quilt if you add a border or two. Then give it to your local hospital or fire department:)

    It seems like you could save those blocks and continue to add to them using scraps from other projects as you go eventually you'll have a big scrappy quilt with lots of memories from past projects.

    I think it would a good center for a Round Robin. You may really like how it ends up when it's completed with all the rounds on it.

    You could make 3 more different blocks and make a lap quilt, or put borders so it is about 30" square and take it to a nursing home for someone to use in a wheel chair. I think it is lovely. But then I am a scrappy quilt girl.

    It is very cute. I thought the same doll quilt swap or maybe add several borders or sashing and make it a baby quilt to gift. As a doll quilt,my two little girls would love it for their dollies. ~smile~
