I'm packing up my house and finding things that haven't seen the light of day for a few years and I'm throwing a lot away. I'm not really a junk collector. However, I will probably never get rid of these quilt blocks. I started them 11 years ago when I moved to Oregon. I was bored and lonely and so to occupy my time I went out and bought fabric. Makes sense right?

But I'm not sure what to do. 11 years is a long time. Fabric has changed and I certainly wouldn't choose this fabric to make this quilt again. Should I finish it? Should I change out the fabric and start again? I'm inclined to think the fabric really isn't that bad. A couple little country designs never hurt anyone...except emotionally.

What do you think?

You are a woman of MANY talents, I think you should make a quilt out of these.

Frame them and place them above your headboard.

I never like a quilt for more than a coupe years. That's why I stopped making so many and now I'm down to about one a year. If it were me I would probably save the blocks but never do anything with them. Your Grandchildren will love them!
