I decided to use up about 480 bonus 1-3/4" HSTs in brown and cream to make a new quilt. And yes, it does require a lot of additional background and border fabric to DO, but if you were doing a quilt WITHOUT those bonus HSTs it would take even more, not to mention all that wasted fabric! *grin* It's going to make a great Christmas gift to a guy in my family! (Always thinking ahead on that sort of thing!) Anyway, I'm really happy with the results.
