I am really going to miss making and posting stars every week! Barbara B's Stars In A Time Warp Quiltalong has finally come to an end. I really enjoyed this project. It helped me organize my fabrics, identify those I had and choose the perfect ones to make 6" stars. It's been a wonderful experience and I encourage you to think about participating in a project such as this!
Here are the last four stars--three Shawl prints and one Cracked Ice.
When I purchased a French General charm pack last year I had no idea the fabrics would be perfect for making these Shawl print stars.
They came in several colorways . . .
. . . making it easy to choose coordinating fabrics.
And when I saw this fabric on Barbara's blog I knew I had the same one. It's part of Windham's Wm. Penn's Vision collection.
It all started back in January when I
decided to make four stars per week instead of one--that's a total of
190 stars from beginning to end. I already used 72 in this quilt but WAIT . . .
I still have 118 more for another project. I really like Becky's Set because of all the scrappy strips she used to border the star blocks. Great idea! And I actually have enough stars to make one just like it but I'll ponder that thought just a little longer :)
Here are some other projects I have in the works:
Tumbler is currently in two halves. My plan is to add rows to each section and then hand sew the vertical center seam when I think I've done enough. This may be a long term project :)
Here is my layout for the Civil War Bowties swap. I'm ready to sew the blocks together but I need to go buy thread--can you believe??
This is the fabric I'm using for the alternate blocks. I think it provides a nice contrast and makes the bowties 'pop.'
I'm still in Hexie Heaven. Can you tell we love BIG DOGS?? I had a Collie when I was twelve and then over the years we've had 3 German Shepherds, a Husky, 2 St. Bernards, 1 Shepherd/St. Bernard mix and most recently a Belgian Sheepdog mix. Most often two at a time.
Currently we are pet-free which is why I so enjoy our granddogs :)
