Weekly Finish #24: Blue Weed Whacker
Blue Weed Whacker
Finished size: 76" x 93"
I finally finished my Weed Whacker quilt from Bonnie Hunter's free pattern.
I started it way back in 2008 and in January I decided that, after 14 years, it was time to finish it. I previously posted about my progress here, here and here.
I quilted it with an E2E design called Audree that is pre-installed in the HandiQuilter ProStitcher.
The pieced backing is definitely not by design. When I saw the fabric with the bird design, I knew I wanted to use it for the backing. Unfortunately, I didn't buy enough and had no choice but to use a different fabric for the middle.
But, why did I end up with a pieced strip at the bottom? Yup, my backing wasn't long enough which I realized when I got to the last quilting row. Ugh! The quilting design at the end does not match up perfectly but it's good enough. Finished is better than perfect!
I love this quilt and am adding it to my personal collection.
