Weed whacker

My challenge group is continuing its journey into the wold of scrap quilts, and who better to guide them than Bonnie Hunter!  This time we have decided to make 'Weed Whacker', which isn't much use in the garden, but certainly goes through your 2" strips! 
I must admit, Muriel chose this one, and it wasn't one which had attracted me, but I'm quite pleased with the way it's going.  It's mainly scraps, but I have added a few strips from my stash, as sometimes the scraps can be a bit boring, and the addition of something jazzy (like the red with white stars or the purple Kaffe Fassett) can lift the whole thing.   

 The addition of the triangles meant there was an opportunity for bonus triangles, which I have made into pinwheels.  I'm going to put a 2" blue border on, then the pinwheels and then either another blue border or just bind it in blue. 

Meanwhile, I have finished sewing the binding on my Japanese X + scrappy.  I love it, and will give it to Project Linus, where I think the child who gets it will love it too.
