Petit Fours and Chintz Stars

Another little finish and White Ground Chintz Stars.


I'm still having fun with the 1-1/2" squares I won from Lori at Humble Quilts :) I named this one Petit Fours

The back. 


My White Ground Chintz Stars from last week. 

A small piece of Kaye England's Enduring Grace and reds from Moda's French General.

An oldie but goodie from the Ann Robinson Collection @ Shelburne Museum by RJR Fabrics.

Oh, how I love this fabric! I purchased it specifically to reproduce a c. 1820 Ohio Star quilt featured in NJ Quilts, p. 54. The chintz was used as the setting squares. Maybe this will be the year.

This is a decorator fabric that I've had for at least 35 years. Even made shower curtains out of it back in the late 70s.

And used it when I made this little repro of a "late eighteenth or early nineteenth century" quilt published in Sandi Fox's book, Small Endearments.  


The back. Looks like I need to make a label :)


I sewed a piece of the selvage down the middle: Williamsburg "Plantation Calico" Copyright 1958 Williamsburg. Wow, is it really that old?

This week it's Blotch-Ground Chintzes--a term I never heard of even though I used two in my Early Stars quilt which you can see on Barbara Brackman's blog today :)

Happy Wednesday!
