Sampler Spree Sew Along
Sampler Spree by Susan Ache
This is about projects that no longer bring us joy. That are a chore to work on and you really don’t care what the finished product is cuz it is just not your jam anymore. But you might still be feeling wishy washy about it, I mean thats a lot of time, money and energy you put into that
Do you still love it?
Do you want to put in the time and money to finish it?
Will it bring joy to your day to work on it, gift it, or display it in your home?
Do you have the space to store it? Or would you rather that space be used for a new project?
Does the occasion still exist for this quilt? For example, if it is a baby quilt, but the baby is now in high school, is there still a need?
So what can you do if you decide its just not love anymore?
Donate the unfinished quilt to the local guild, almost always someone willing and excited to finish
Repurpose the orphan blocks as pillows, placemats
Make a scrappy backing using orphan blocks
