Stars in a Time Warp week 3 - shirtings

It's SHIRTINGS week at the Stars in a Time Warp block of the week on Barbara Brackman's Civil War Quilts blog.

I've been collecting shirtings for so many years - I will use shirtings in almost all of the stars in this block of the week.  It feels great to have a real purpose for these great shirtings.

The blue fabric above is not reproduction - it is indigo I brought back from Japan two years ago - but I love it so much, I use it whenever I can!

These little 6 inch stars are so fun to make!

If you join in, let me know, and if you are on Instagram, post them there #Starsinatimewarp!


  1. Great looking stars, and the indigo looks right at home with the skirting!

  2. I love your blocks. That indigo looks like it fits right in with CW repros. Let's pretend it is. =) Now that I'm TWO weeks behind, I think I better make this a priority next week!

  3. What beautiful stars and fabrics. I am also participating in the Stars In A Time Warp quilt along. Sharing my blocks on Civil War Quilts' Flickr group :)

  4. Love the frogs! I had not seen that one before.
