2012-23: Russian Star Orphan

Russian StarThese 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.
