purchased fabric for a quilt then found you don't like what you bought. I have reached the point of adding the final border and I absolutely hate the fabric I purchased. I think it detracts from the focal fabric. Luckily when I purchased several of the fabrics in the quilt I got 2 yards of each even though I knew I didn't need that much and one of them works perfectly as a border and my original border fabric will make a great backing. Using the original border fabric is good because it doesn't go with anything in my stash.
With the cost of fabric I am going to be much more careful in the future.
