Tuesday Quilt Block Feb. 24

Just a quick note today as I have lots of (real) work to do!  I am caught up with my Time Warp Stars and below are scans of 1. 2 chrome orange stars and 2. 2 stars featuring shirting prints.  I am also using various shirting prints for the backgrounds to the stars.






I am linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River and Quilt Story as I do most weeks I have blocks to share. Both blog hops have pictures of pretty quilt blocks and other projects. I am also joining Work in Progress Wednesday - some colorful and interesting projects there!

Tuesday Quilt block Feb. 17

I am continuing my Stars in a time Warp Series. I have finally caught up with the fabrics listed on the Civil War Quilts blog, except that I do not have a good solid green to stand in for the old overdyed green.  Also I have only two blocks to show you this week as they are they only two I have scanned and ready!

A great fabric type, Prussian blue.  The first featured fabric is a reproduction ombre or fondue print, and the second one may be more typical for Prussian blue.

Tuesday Quilt Block Feb. 10

I've started a new project!  I will be making sawtooth stars along with the "stars in a time warp" project on the Civil War Quilts blog by Barbara Brackman.  I surely do have a large stash of CW fabric,and it should get used up!  I have decided to make two stars out of each fabric type mentioned.

I am, alas, a few weeks behind.  But the stars, finishing at 6 inches, are easy to do so I think I will catch up.  The first fabric Barbara discusses is Turkey red.  How lucky I have been collecting these for years.  My blocks are below.

Tuesday Quilt Block Jan. 27

Poor little blog, left alone for a month or so. I am back with a Tuesday Quilt block.

It was a very busy holiday season for me.  But I did manage to sew some log cabin blocks over the break.  I am using fabric that I collected in the '80's and '90's, to start a Christmas quilt.  Well over the years I fell out of love with these fabrics, and some of them look downright ugly to me now.  So the thing to do is to cut them into small pieces or strips and sew them together again,and get them out of the sewing room!  Let's see what we have.


I hope you see my point.  This block finishes at 7 inches square.  As of last night I had sewn all blocks together and started adding simple 3 inch borders.
