The Stash Is Winning - December 2013

Posted by Dawn Hunter on

Okay, so to recap from last time: 125 quilts that I have all of the materials for, 38 of which have been started and are therefore officially UFO’s.  To try and pare these numbers down a little, maybe I’ll tackle some of the quilts that are closest to being finished.  So here goes: Here are two quilts from a Mark Lipinski class several years ago that only need borders.  They use the same fabrics in different patterns, and I still like them both.  After looking around, it seems that the reason they don’t have borders is that I didn’t buy...
