They can't all be winners
This was my latest quilting project. At some point I was cleaning out some stuff in my sewing room and I discovered a stack of half yard cuts of some nicey jane fabric from 2009 (!). I loved it and wanted to use it RIGHT THEN.
I waffled about which pattern to use, but decided this ribbon box pattern would work well with the large scale prints.
Aside from the hot mess that is the striped ribbon near the middle (I should have ignored the cutting directions with that fabric, and I knew I should have, but I ignored myself), I just hate it.
My aunt suggested finishing it for donation.
But, eh, I just don't know. I would have to put another 10 hours into it, and another $20 at least, and lets be honest here - my time and my money are too precious to waste on something I am just not into.
If this were anything other than crafting I would say well, Sarah, there is *value in finishing!* But for crafting? Probably not. There is, however, value in learning. I am new to this quilting gig and each quilt is an opportunity for learning about so many things.
I have a strict NO UFO rule so it won't be just hanging around either.
A decision must be made soon though, because until it is, I cannot start something new! :-)
