Stars in a Time Warp: Finishes in 2017

Hartwell Stars
2015-2017
Cynthia's Second Stars in a Time Warp

The Stars in a Time Warp Quilt Along ran here in 2015. Some people finished quilts or tops this year.

Cynthia at Wabi-sabi Quilts
She alternated the 6" stars
with a half-square triangle block.

Hannah Robinson did the machine quilting.

This is Cynthia's second quilt from the Stars blocks. 



And I found Barbara Goetz's top on Instagram.
Old fashioned shirtings for the alternate blocks;
new-fashioned border.

Scrappy Squares by Barbara Schaffer.
Barbara had some left over stars, so this is her second I think.


And I have found my stack of stars. I didn't get very far. Here are fifteen
I thought about setting with an alternate chrome yellow or Turkey red
square but I don't want a quilt that big. Sashing may be the answer.

We could have a show of Stars jut made by people named Barbara. I think there are 7 Barbaras in the files. But that would mean I'd have to get mine finished.

Wonderful collection of star quilts!
Cynthia was at seminar in NH this year - she is the nicest woman and so talented.
Thanks for sharing these SIATW quilts today

We Barbara's make great SIATW quilts, right? That would be a fun exhibit.

Stars are my favorite block. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for taking the time to find pictures of these lovely stars and post about them. I love seeing how different each quilt is. So inspiring. Love Barbara Schaffer's quilt; I love the "sashing" between the stars to make the border bigger. Great job! ;^)

All of these star quilts are lovely. I really like Cynthia's diagonal setting. It is striking.

Oooo thank you for posting my quilts. I enjoyed that entire starry year - learned a lot and collected a lot of fat quarters along the way. Thank you again Barbara! It is fun to see all the various SIATW quilts - all of them so pretty. Looking forward to whatever is cooking in 2018 - although I still need to finish up Westering Women!
