Citrus Star, Lemons and Limes!

Our work on the 40th anniversary commemorative quilt project continues! I was so excited to receive this note from MGEV Trainee Paula Cox in Bartow County:

I saw the article in Trellis and thought that making a quilt is a super idea….Block #1 is from Quilt in a Day — “Quilters Almanac” 1992 issue. It’s the January block. In the Almanac, it was named “Wandering Star,” but in honor of the fabrics used, I tagged it as “Citrus Star.” I had a couple of the quarter square pieces left over from the center of the block, so after a bit of “playing,” block #2 was born. Block #2 is pretty much a “Square in a Square” block with the additions of dimensional corner blocks. In keeping with the fabrics, again I’ve tagged this one as “Lemons and Limes.”

Thank you, Paula, for your contributions!
