Well,, half way through the cutting and sewing I realized I was really using someone else's stash that I agreed to take at some point a few years ago. I am not sure why I found that funny and less satisfying, but such is life. Does someone else's stash immediately become "yours" upon acceptance? Probably. I made these two small quilts for my cousin's two little girls. I have heard that they love them and they can easily tell them apart.
