(Scrappy) Stars in a Time Warp finished

I finished machine quilting the first of my two "stars in a time warp" quilts.

I used my usual monofilament in the needle, cotton in the bobbin.  Walking foot for the stars and the inner border; free motion (very free) the wild border.  Just don't look too closely.  The aim was to get - it - done.

Raw edge - for some good fraying as the quilt is used and washed.

My labels are usually this quick and simple - and done.

Colors are more true here:

It washed up well and I'm happy to start using it!  Now to start putting together the second quilt!!

Meanwhile Barbara Brackman has started another excellent series - this time a "Westering Women" block of the month - with lessons about the Westward Migration.  YES I am going to add this to my repertoire this year.... even as I feel I'm on the teetering edge of TOO many projects.  Click here for an introduction.  Barbara just posted the first block today - here.

Hope all is well with my blogging buddies everywhere.  We just missed the big snow storm here, and in fact it is so warm now that most of the snow has melted and we are in for some mild days ahead - winter surely isn't over, but we can pretend!
