I think it is just terrific and thank you for sharing, if you do not want it sell it to Mary Mo, I am sure she would make it a treasure.
Have a Blessed day

Bonnie Hunter was the first person I thought of when I saw this too. Maybe you could send it to her. She loves old quilts and is the queen of scrappy.

I love it. I would back it with some crazy fabric, sandwich it and quilt it on the machine to keep handy for naps.

Get a cheap flannel blanket for backing sew it up like a pillowcase, no binding tack it with yarn and give it to someone who is cold or to a pet for his own blanket for a cover when you are painting, in the trunk so you can take it out and use it for traction if you get stuck as a demo for what not to do when you make a quilt, as a show n tell and act like you did it and are proud of it to see how your friends or guild will say, for a place to put muddy shoes and boots on in bad weather. fold it up and use it as a knee pad when working in the yard, use it to cover plants when it is going to frost. I can keep going just let me know if I have not at least got your attention. AND EVERYTIME YOU SEE IT YOU WILL SMILE AND SAY WHY DID I EVER BUY THAT THING. Oh yes wrap it up and give it to another quilter at Christmas and act serious as you see their face. wrap up it everyyear and give it to someone else. I have to stop

I had a girlfriend throw away 2 quilts like this from her grandmother.......I talked her out of them. For me they make perfect Picnic Table covers. That was nearly 20 years ago, and I still use them.

Perhaps whomever made it that was all they had to work with. I would find a way to save it.

I think the quilt is very special. I wouldn't rush to do anything with it. Let it tell its story to you. If you can't love it send it off to someone who can. In its own special way it is a wonderful work of art!

When I had gotten blocks like this (didn't match, seams were uneven, blocks were different sizes) I made them into animal quilts for the local shelter. The lady running the shelter loved them and the animals didn't know they weren't what I'd normally do. Now I look for these so I can make her more quilts. She gives them when someone adopts an animal. That's bettere then the round file any day.
