Stars in a Time Warp: Weeks 1-4

Barbara Brackman's blocks of the week/month are impossible to resist.  I love the history lessons and seeing all the variations of the blocks.  Even if you don't join in, be sure check out the great photos and history of fabrics through time on her blog every Wednesday.

I am making two blocks of each fabric and sewing several weeks worth at one time seems to work better with my schedule.  These 6" sawtooth star blocks are so much fun.  Let's see if my stash will carry me through to the end of the quilt.  Here are my stars for the first four weeks.

Multi-colored Turkey Red Prints

Prussian Blue

Shirting Prints

Chrome Orange/Cheddar

If you made it all the way to the end, your reward is these cutemous photos of Edgar and Stella.  They were curled up so sweet most of yesterday afternoon in a yin-yang shape and rotated places at some point.

The weekend is almost here.  Hope you have lots of time to sew.

They look great! You know the button you grabbed for the link to the Time warp stars? I made that for her ;o)

Your stars are lovely but I think I like the puddy-tats just that little bit better. But only just.

Michelle said... the cuddly kitties! Your quilt blocks are pretty amazing too! :)
