I started this quilt a long time ago, as is evident by the fabric I used. I started to make one just like this, and ended up giving it to a friend who was retiring. So I started another one for myself. It's not that big, about 27" sq. so the piecing didn't take that long, but I had hand quilted the other one, so I wanted to hand quilt mine too. You can see I got the center almost half quilted...then it ended up abandoned. Not sure why I never got back to it. I eventually stored it in a tub with some fabric.
When I was going through some project leftover fabrics and sorting them into tubs, I decided I should finish up some partially sewn models. When I teach a class I make a model to hang at the store so people know what the class quilt looks like. Then I make up some demo props that show how to make it, or one or more of the steps. Sometimes I make up something else with a variation of the pattern, or the leftover cuts from the original quilt. Some of them will never be made into quilts, but some of them are small versions, so I could finish them and make a runner, or a pillow or something.
So that's what prompted me to get out this small quilt to see how far I had gotten before I put it away and to decide if I should finish it. I don't really like the fabrics anymore, so I'm not sure if I want to spend the time to finish it. I could probably finish quilting it by machine, but not sure I want to do that either. But I hate to just throw it away. Do you have any old projects laying around like this? What would you do?
