Most members started off with a "jelly-roll" of fabric (jelly rolls are made of strips of 2.5" wide fabric which are cut into lengths and then all rolled up - jelly roll is the American name for swiss roll). This is an example of a "jelly roll" made up of complementary colours of fabric.
The strips are then sorted out and stitched together along their longest sides, either in rows, or in ever-expanding squares, or other suitable designs.
The following photographs show pieces that members
have started to stitch together.
The stitched pieces are then pressed from the back to flatten the seams.
By the end of the day, members had pretty much accomplished their missions,
with some beautiful results!
