Borders and Backs

After 2 weeks of big fabric purchases my total stash busting is looking pretty low. The end of April is 1/3 of the year and I am far behind my goal for the year. So this week I thought I would challenge myself to a week of borders and backs. I'm going to dig out the quilts I have almost done, sew up the blocks, add the borders and make up some backs. With hope I will be at 50 yards busted by Sunday so I will be right on track for the year.

First I made a back for this quilt.

I then sewed these sawtooth blocks together added a couple of borders and made a back. "That red, white and blue strip has been looking for a home for quilt awhile. Glad to get that one out of the stash.
