Stars in a Time Warp , Update - Weeks 41 - 45
There are just a couple weeks to go in Barbara Brackman's Stars in a Time Warp Quilt-a-long. My gosh where did an entire year go?? I am reaching 70 blocks in my collection and wanted to show you the blocks from the last several weeks.
Week 41 was Neon Novelties. Hmmm... a challenge indeed. I checked my stash and didn't find anything like that - although I loved the look that Barbara described in her post. A black with neon colors. Really interesting.
A couple of weeks later I came across this a repro print in a quilt shop. Not sure it is exactly what is considered a neon print.. but it was as close as I could come! You can bet I will be on the lookout for Neon Novelties in the future!
Week 42 was Sprigged Muslins. I chose to use this black and white sprig muslin print in the background of my star block.
Week 43 looked at Provincial Prints - love these colorful prints!
Week 44 was Early Roller Prints Clouds and Storms. This is an interesting class of prints that I have never thought of! But there they were in my stash! It's amazing what I have learned.
You can see the close up of the swirling storm print in the background of this block.
Week 45 was Corals and Seaweeds. The center of my block seems to have coral and/or seaweed. I definitely will be on the lookout for these reproduction prints in the future.
Here is a close up of the center of that block.
You can learn more about these styles by visiting Barbara Brackman's Civil War Quilts blog.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my US friends! Tomorrow is my pie baking day.
Enjoy the holiday with friends, family and lots of blessings!
