  179. Do I have to be honest??
    Well, I have to finish my started Terrain quilt before spring (otherwise I will not use it this season...). And I will definitely have to spend some of the fabrics in my collection, with new table runners, new skirts & shirts and will use the leftovers for some drawstring bags! They are so fast to sew! I love the pattern! THanks!
