Weekly Finish...Or Not: Weed Whacker in Blue Quilt Top

Finally finished the Weed Whacker quilt top that I previously posted about here and here.  

I am glad that I decided to add the pieced border.  It would have been much easier to just add a solid border but I think taking the extra time and effort to make the pieced border was well worth it.

I probably won't get to quilting it until much later so for now it's going in the "to be quilted" pile.

Next on my project list is adding the borders to and finishing up my Rhododendron Trail quilt top, and then picking up where I left off on my Unity quilt top.  Just sew busy! :)

And, thank you for your wonderful comments.  You encourage and keep me motivated!

  2. Oh what a beautiful quilt top! 'Tis so pretty in blues. The pieced border takes your quilt to a whole another level. It looks fabulous!

  3. Oh yes!!! I am so super glad you added that pieced border - that just makes the whole quilt shine! I loved it without - but I think you were right!!! Perfection!!!
