Stars in a Time Warp

I decide to jump in on Barbara Brackman's Stars in a Time Warp Series. She says, "Each post will be a lesson on reproduction fabrics in a particular style or color."

The pattern will remain the same each week, it is the fabric that will change. You can make one or as many as you want each week. Sawtooth Star is my favorite star and so are reproductions, so I thought I may as well join! I'm all caught up. I'll be making 2 a week. 

Turkey reds- week 1

Prussian Blues- week 2

Shirtings week 3

Chrome orange- week 4

That's it for me. Have an excellent weekend!

  8. This is such a fun idea! I'm looking forward to seeing how the look of each star changes each week just by changing the fabric in an organized way like that!

  19. I'm doing it too. I have taken the fabric of the week out of my stash each week but I haven't got the stars made yet.
    How many will depend on the number of fabrics I have in each colour/type. I don't have many Prussian blues but I have quite a few of the " reds" and some Cheddar. It's lined up as the next project.

  22. I'm using her posts as 'stash building info'. I don't have those Prussian blues, but I guess I could do 2 blocks a week like you are. Hmmm might have to jump in and make a few stars, this is such a great block. You can never go wrong with stars.
    Btw, yes, you can post about coming to RWS
