To Liberate or not to liberate, that is the question!

How soon after you buy a fat quarter or half yard bundle do you liberate it from it's ribbon?
I have purchased quite a few bundles over the years and yes, I've liberated some but not enough....

I bought this Riley Blake "Pieces of Hope" bundle last week with a discount thru Green Fairy's
anniversary sale and then told some teachers in school that I would make and donate a quilt
during Autism Awareness Month, which I think is in April...so I do have to take the bundle apart but I'm having a hard time pulling that ribbon....guess it's like a band aid, huh?  Do it quick and be done with it....

Any suggestions for a pattern to showcase the fabrics?

I feel your pain! I,just this week, took the ribbon off of a fat quarter bundle that I have had for close to 10 years!!! I even cut it up so that it is ready to be sewn!
