Stars in a Time Warp - Update, Weeks 7, 8 & 9

I have really been enjoying the Stars in a Time Warp quilt along with Barbara Brackman!  In fact my plan is to limit myself to just one block a week, based on her 'fabric history lesson' for that week.  But sometimes it is just too hard to make just one block with these wonderful fabrics!
As you can see here, there are some multiple blocks and some additions from previous weeks.:-)
I made an additional Turkey Red print.  I thought this was a better representation than my original block... which I will still use in my final quilt.
I also made another Prussian Blue block.  I found this blue fabric (star points) at the NJ Quilt Fest and thought that bright blue was a good example.
Week 7 was Madder style Prints.  This one was a little bit of a challenge for me.  I hope I captured the look with these two blocks.
Indigo Blue was the fabric for week 8.  Not sure I have this one 100% right... original indigo fabrics were smaller, simple prints.   I might have to make another one! LOL  However, there will be more indigo blue in the future which I really like!  I have a certain connection to Indigo Blue which I will share at another time.
Chrome Yellow followed in week 9.  Oh, love these yellow reproductions!!!  These fabrics were so fun to work with, I just had to make two!!
I was very pleased and honored that I got a shout out from Barbara Brackman on her blog Material Culture when she posted my stars.  Thanks, Barbara!!!  I am loving this quilt along.  It is fun and educational!  I love history and knowing where we came from as quilters. 
This week is Green Calicos.. OH Boy!!!!
Happy Stitching!

  1. They're all gorgeous! I particularly love the blue and brown star. They will make one warm looking quilt, for sure.

  2. Deb, your star blocks have me yearning to put some together too - they are simply gorgeous!

  3. These are all so pretty -- I especially love the Turkish Red one!

  4. All of your stars are pretty - I too am really enjoying the history lesson each week!

  5. You have used beautiful fabric for these stars, I'm not usually a fan of reproduction fabrics but you've changed my view of them with this post!

  6. You've chosen such gorgeous colors. I'm sure this will be a beautiful quilt. I like that you're tying it to Barbara's fabric history lesson.

  7. Lovely stars!! I find it hard to limit it to one a week :)
