In contrast to Mom's light fabric choice, I went with a solid black for my extra fabric choice. For my block, I used Bonnie Hunter's free instructions for Sister's Choice.
One thing that was an extra challenge for me was that some of the jelly roll strips were a little skimpy and didn't measure the full 2 1/2" across. There was definitely a bit of coaxing that went into making some of the blocks. Given its name, this one is destined for my baby brother once I get it quilted!
Here are the two finished quilts side by side! I'm still amazed at the differences every time I look at them!
