Stars Finale

I found this photo online (sorry I cannot trace it back to the owner or the photographer)  and it was the inspiration quilt for my Stars in a Time Warp. 
(The antique quilt is (was?) owned by Vintage Blessings. She has a shop on EBay and a FB page. If I recall correctly, she showed the cheddar star picture on FB and said she didn't know if she could let that one go. I haven't seen it for sale but I might have missed it. Someone must have copied her photo and put it on Pinterest without attribution.) Thanks Taryn!!



 I got mine outside today to snap a few photos in the natural light. My top and bottom border have a slightly different cheddar fabric.

 I changed the quilt setting after I calculated how much fabric I would need. I like the change anyway. It was sprinkling out so the quilt is a little wet, not dirty.
Will have to mull over quilting ideas before I commit to anything. I will not be hand quilting this one, since my cherry tree quilt is my one large hand project and it is enough. Thank you Barbara for the wonderful lessons about fabric this past year!!

I'll be happily reading along Barbara Brackman's Westering Women series, beginning January 27th.  Read more about it HERE.

    I'm thinking about it too and at this time I had no idea for the quilting ! It's very difficult with these stars !
    This will be another challenge for me ! :)

  6. Love this, Lori! The simplicity is so great. Mine is pretty complicated so this makes me want to make another--but probably won't...

  7. That turned out really nice. The cheddar ties the blocks together and gives that great vintage look. I like the quilting on the original.....could the double lines be done with a twin needle?
    I didn't make one this time, but did follow along. I'm looking forward to the next one....should be able to manage a block a month.

  14. Both yours and the inspiration quilt are lovely. I like how the pictured quilt is quilted. Double lines take lots of patience though :0)

  15. It is just simply beautiful! I love the borders with the brown set between the cheddar fabric. It frames the quilt so nicely and draws the eye right back to the stars. Job well done! :) Just curious- on an average do you sew daily? Love your style! :)

  16. The different cheddars only add to the authenticity of the look. What a striking quilt you have made!

  17. Nice work Lori! I have taken your humble quilts approach to heart since I found your blog and no longer worry about perfection, adding in mismatching bits of fabric and not stressing about lining up my seams. I tell myself, "this is a humble quilt"!

  21. I love the stars you made. Using a solid alternate square makes the quilt larger. How big is yours?? Will you send it out for quilting then??
