I made a quilt top from a kit (now I know why it was on clearance) and I really don't like it at all. I didn't want to spend the money on a backing and batting so I decided to cut it up and make place mats and table runners. I got 10 mats and 2 table runners out of it and used scrap pieces for the backs. I took them to a craft sale and I sold every one of them.
Who knew?! At least I made my $$ back!
