Too funny, I like the idea of making some stuffed bears or something like that. Before and after pictures required for the great story behind the animals.

No if you don't like it donate it. There is someone out there who will love it.

I love it and thinks it charming. Plus, it needed a home. I see there are many women here that would be happy to take it off you hands. LOL!

Quilt the heck out of it! Once quited, square it up, bind & love it.
I'll take it off your hands...dollar plus postage?

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?

So glad you decided to do this. I can't wait to see the finished product. I think you are going to love it.

I would have bought that for $1. Maybe even more. I love vintage fabric and someone else's blocks

I would go ahead put a thick batting in it and stitch it up, You might be surprised how you can hide some of that excess. I just inherited one similar and it came out pretty well, I just stitched in the ditch. Sorry no pics it went to a college kid that fell in love with it.

This is a real quilt. It was made from what the person had, not what they could buy, which they probably could not afford to buy anything. It is not a color coordinated one like they are today. It was made with love and labor. It's a genuine beautiful quilt. People used to use what they had and it is absolutely gorgeous. I would love to have it and please do not use it for a dog's bed or put it in the trash. I would be glad to buy it from you for more than a $1.

Numbers one through six hmmmm, could describe many of my quilts , They are still used and loved even if they posess the 1-6 qualities. These reasons are why I will not post my photos, not because I am ashamed but because I know many would cringe hahahahahaha
