Crossed Stars quilted and bound.
Pictured here is another finish for the week.
NLCQG* had a charity sewing evening for the February program. We did Jelly Roll Races, a technique popularized by the Missouri Star Quilt Co. -- you can see the instructions here . Each person brought her own jelly roll (40 2.5" strips). I went to my Christmas stash for my selection. I got most of the piecing done that evening and finished the center a day or so later. This weekend I added borders, pieced the back, basted it, and quilted using meandering in the center and a sort of spiral in the border. The quilt is 47 x 70 and used 6 yards. It will be donated to an area agency along with other guild members' jelly roll quilts.
Block Lotto participants are making "low-volume" hearts for February. These string-pieced blocks feature tone-on-tone or similar non-contrasting prints. I made two....and I may make more!
