boxy star finish

 I am happy to report I have the quilt  done for boxy stars in yellow and black. I started this in 2016 to use a jelly roll.  I have worked on it as part of the rainbow scrap challenge this year. February's color is yellow. This is an older UFO that would not make it into the top 10 quilts I want to finish, but, still needs some attention. It is good to clean out some of these types of UFOs. I started the month with the blocks already made, and I needed to assemble the top and quilt it.


67 x80






12 yards of fabric

I used a skeleton fabric for the back since I had a large enough piece and it was black. It will be a fun surprise every time I see it.

I barely made it a finish by the end of the month. This will be part of my one monthly goal and phd 21
