Mini's and Weeds

Just a quick post to show a quilt that I forgot to show when I completed it a couple of weeks ago. Bonnie Hunter has wonderful free quilt patterns that anyone can use to make fantastic scrap quilts. As part of my stash busting I decided to cut up lots of scraps and very old fat quarters to make one of Bonnie’s quilts. The one I choose was ‘Weed Wacker’ and it now contains bits of many quilts that I have made in the past.

I free machine quilted it with a variegated thread and really enjoyed doing it.

The quilting came together nicely where the light squares met.

And lastly, just a peek at the mini quilt I have made for my ALQS partner. I really love this one and wish I could keep it. I do hope my partner will like it. Hopefully I will get it finished and in the post in the next couple of days.

Isn't fabric just WONDERFUL? The different ways it can look with various types of stitching - that freehand quilting you've done is just lovely.

Can't wait to see the 'whole' mini quilt. x

Don't you just LOVE Bonnie's patterns? I've made several and am working on a scrappy trips around the world even now.

Beautiful results!!!
