“Pandora’s Box Retreat Quilt

Cleo was the happy winner of the 48 blocks made on our quilting retreat this past weekend!

“Pandora’s Box” is a design published in Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott. We began with a package of orange, pink, red, and purple 2 1/2″ strips and supplemented with stash to make a larger quilt. For each block a retreat attendee made, she wrote her name on a ticket and put it in a bowl. The more blocks someone made, the greater chance she had to win. We drew the lucky ticket on Saturday evening.

Cleo will have a tangible reminder of the vibrant and lovely ocean sunrises we viewed each morning.

Tip: we chose a block design that can be trimmed without compromising triangle points, realizing that 12 quilters will sew with slightly differing seam allowances.
