A Lotta Stars

Judith writes:
"I've attached a picture of my quilt, Sleeping under the Stars. It has 225 4-inch star blocks."
225 is a lot of stars.

I think Judith wins the unannounced contest for over achievement in the star category.I am sending her a package of fat quarters from Alice's Scrapbag.

And Barbara S. gets a runner-up prize for 190.

As does Jill who also made about 190.

In the comments last week she said:
"I loved making these stars. I learned so much and had such a great time looking through my fabric. I decided to make four of each as was a good hand piecing project for the year. I got behind during the summer months but I am almost caught up with only about 10 left to stitch. I haven't counted yet, but I should be at the 190 mark. 
Some of the weeks I had so many fabrics to choose from that I think I might have made some extras. I have decided to use them in two quilts...Sister Quilts I am calling them. The layout will be the same with different setting fabric (same print just different colorway). And I think they will be for my two girls.
I can honestly say that if I hadn't decided to hand piece these stars I would have never got them done. It was so easy to sit down in the evening, watch a little TV with the family and make a block or two."
Let's hear it for hand-piecing!

Way to go Judith. But, I think the biggest prize goes to you Barbara for sharing all of your knowledge and enthusiasm for quilt history. And, for inspiring all those stars! Thanks again.
