Step 5 nvolved sewing large pink triangles and then smaller neutral triangles. That resulted in cutaway triangles which I promptly sewed, trimmed, and pressed. They're 1-1/2" unfinished. I have no immediate plan for them but they'll be ready when inspiration strikes.

Code Name Welcome Home
Its real name is Labyrinth Walk. I made it for my friends B & K. "The backstory: B does not sew. Not buttons, not hems, and certainly not quilts. Five years ago a picture of the Labyrinth Walk quilt popped onto her Facebook feed and she was teased about "her" quilt. It went viral--she says 40,000+ reposts--even though she clearly stated that she DID NOT MAKE the quilt. Last fall B and her husband K suffered from a house fire. They've been living in temporary quarters." B & K have since moved back home.

Ann won the 2021 AAUW holiday quilt raffle. It was great to have the drawing at our in-person luncheon after so many months of meeting by Zoom.
