    A Donation in Disguise

    I had to add a second back to this one.
    The back was too big a mess with pin-dots and eyelashes.
    It looks better now from both sides but weighs a ton.
    Somebody will be very warm. lol
    For donation.

    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Nice finish...you make it look so simple to do all these projects.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Just adding a second back to cover up the eyelashes is a BRILLIANT idea! Heavy, maybe, maybe not. For those of us who live in a cold climate, it is welcomed!

    I've spent a ton of time ripping eyelashes....this would have been a great alternative.

    I really like this design and the fabrics you chose for it, not to mention your brilliant solution to the eyelash problem.

    This may be a dumb ?? but how do you add a second back? Do you quilt it again? Nice pattern and colors.

    Great save - I would never have thought of it, and have spent many an hour un-quilting numerous eyelashes. I'll remember your solution!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    What a nice quilt and great save Patrice! However, what are pindots and eyelashes on a quilt?? Pin dots I think I got figured out, but not for sure, LOL.
