Yes, guilty as charged.  stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

ETA:  The original idea I was working on as a quilt for my first great-grandchild has been declared an official big-time mistake  because I wrecked my left shoulder while shoving it under the needle of Cecil Faye.  My shoulder was too old for the technique.

My plan is to offer this thing to Other Daughter when I see her at Christmas time but if she is not interested, then out it goes. She was recently rear-ended while sitting in her van (idling at a stop sign) so she probably won't want it.

I don't like to be reminded of mistakes/disasters/bad choices so I don't keep unfinished projects (aka UFOs) hanging around.

Hi Donna!  Welcome to the forum and thank you for sharing photos of your projects and your darling granddaughter.  We look forward to seeing you here often.

You wouldn't just pitch it in the trash, would you, Judy?  I know you want it out of your sight, but maybe someone else would take it and complete it?  Someone with a healthier left shoulder ...

Judy, I love your quilt. The colors are stunning.  DO NOT THROW IT OUT... Put me on the list if no one else wants it. You know my address.

I'm sorry you hurt your shoulder. It's frustrating to not be able to do the things we used to do. Take care and I hope your shoulder heals fast.

Mary, you certainly made me chuckle. 

Just because you rescued my green disaster years ago and made it into a lovely bed quilt doesn't mean you can save every disaster that comes out of my fevered brain. LOL  I know you love a challenge but some quilty things are not worth the effort involved.

As I mentioned earlier, I will show it to Other Daughter at Christmas time and see what she says ...

Judy just because you don't like it does not mean it is still an awesome quilt. I really like it too.

I really like the dotty quilt too...

perhaps you could load it on the Avante....and meander it...(I'd leave the stitching that you already did and just quilt over it..)

Thank you for the welcome!

Actually I was a member of this forum from About many years ago before they moved it here.  I lost track because I was working but now am retired and busily working on staying caught up, but the more I do the more I have left to do.  When I retired I thought that I would have all the time in the world to sew and quilt.  BOY, was I ever wrong.  I'm crazier than ever with grandkids, hubby, guild activities, friends, and whatever else life throws my way!

I have my own FB page, Scrappy Quilters and Garden Flowers Quilt Challenge 2018.  

I think I love buying fabric, getting it cut up and sewing the blocks together, but when it comes to sashing and borders, etc, I get bored with the project.  Not great at quilting but am learning how.  Anyone else in that same boat, love putting it together but not the quilting part?
