Stellar Performances

Kathy W sent a photo of her fantastic finish for Stars in a Time Warp.
I count 52 8" stars.
"I loved following the time warp blog and each week went thru my stash to make stars. I didn't have to buy any fabric, and have so much left from my years of collecting. I did include three pieces of original vintage fabric, a pink on pink, black and white shirting, and a piece of indigo blue.
I had several copies of a free flyer pattern from McCall's and used it for the lay out of the star, but I created my own border."
Kathy Wilder
It's a clever arrangement and the border goes perfectly. Look at the stars in vertical strips and you will see how it's laid out.

I bet Kathy still has some reproduction prints left in her stash,
but I'm hoping it's time to buy more.

Stars in a Time Warp
95.5" X 116"
 61 stars.

Beverly M set her stars on point in a layout
 she saw in QuiltMania. 
The quilt was "Union Station" by Suzanne Unbehaun.

"Longarm machine quilting by Linda Bailey of Newton Falls, OH.
 She does a wonderful job."

Jeanne at Spiral---
11 x 11 = 121 stars!
( and a lot of red squares too)

Barb Fife showed me her 8" stars with alternate double nine patches.

She made the stars larger so she didn't have to make
the squares any smaller. They finish to 1"

Ha - 121 stars @ 17 pieces each, and 144 cornerstones, and 264 sashing strips, but who's counting? :)

Star blocks make a great quilt!

Hi Barbara, I so love the layout that Kathy W used for her stars in a time warp quilt. Could I please ask where I could obtain a copy of the pattern layout please? Thanks so much, hope you can help. Kind regards Natalie.
