These orphan blocks are hand pieced in a design called Russian Star. Someone in our guild donated them to be used in a community outreach project. I trimmed them to an even size, and then sashed them with a chintz fabric. The pink background fabric is heavy weight, so the chintz was able to balance the weight of the pink fabric.
The freehand machine quilting included a spiral in the center of the star and a dense fern-like sun-spray that emanated from the star center. Binding was attached by machine. This quilt has been donated to Victim Services.
