I had a pile of four-patches made from 3" squares as leaders & enders at previous retreats. On the second day of the retreat I pulled out some HSTs and made two stars for the centers then put these all together into two neonatal quilt tops. As you can see, I don't worry about a few extra HSTs making their way into the checkerboard pattern.
In the afternoon we had our "Jelly Roll Race". I was one of the last to finish, not too speedy, taking about an hour and a quarter. Here are some of the group results laid out on the floor.
The last photo is of mine. My strips were half as long as everyone else's and I inserted the hourglass blocks between each color in the long. long strip.
I was exhausted by the race, so I took another nap!
In the evening I started putting together another neonatal quilt from the pyramid triangles.
