Weekly Finish #10: Unity Quilt

 
I just love my Unity Quilt!  This is my fourth Bonnie Hunter quilt and I am just amazed every time I finish one. 

I started this quilt in October 2021 and worked on it through November.  Then put it aside until the new year. I posted my progress here and here.


I finally got back to it in March when I decided to have it finished by Independence Day.  


I followed Bonnie's design without deviation and kept her color scheme.  Like most of her designs, this pattern has a gazillion small pieces, and I am always thankful for my Accuquilt cutter when working on Bonnie's designs.  I do say that her designs are definitely well worth the time and effort.


Although I did have to purchase some of the light blue fabric, most of the fabrics were from my stash and many have been around for many years.


I love this design with the Peace sign but I didn't have enough for the backing so I had to piece it with a red with white stars fabric.

I quilted it on my Moxie longarm using an E2E pantograph with stars and loops and used Warm & Natural batting.  I'm super happy with the result.


The quilt measures 72 x 91.


When I started quilting over 20 years ago (with a 10-year gap), I never thought I could accomplish something like this.  But I was motivated to try Bonnie's designs after seeing all the beautiful quilts on social media.  I jumped in with the 2019 Frolic mystery, took it one step at a time, and amazed myself when I saw the finished quilt.

Until next time ... 
Be happy and keep on quilting!
