Tuesday Quilt block June 30

...And today I got up late and missed a Doctor's appointment. Sigh. well, there is always the Tuesday Quilt block.

In the Stars in a Time Warp Series last week, Barbara Brackman discussed Fancy machine grounds, including picotage.  Since I have already made blocks using this kind of fabric, I dug deeper in my upstairs stash (yes I have two!) and found just regular chintz fabrics with light grounds.


A star made with Mary Koval's Family tree fabric, and


A more vintage fabric, showing the registration 'haloes'.

I am linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River and Quilt Story as I do most weeks I have blocks to share. Both blog hops have pictures of pretty quilt blocks and other projects. I am also joining Work in Progress Wednesday - some colorful and interesting projects there!

I have a page on Facebook: keep up with my infrequent quilt posts at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Viridian61/347674418583948?ref=hl

Tuesday Quilt Block June 23

It's mid summer and the weather is beautiful!
I am running a little late today because I needed to make some stars in a time warp blocks. The fabric Barbara Brackman described last week was chintz with blotch grounds - chintz with dark grounds.
Deep in my stash lurked this first fabric - dark and with registration 'haloes'.


Small scale too, so that you can see some of the pattern in a 6 inch block.
I am less happy with the next block.


I am not happy with the background fabric - not happy at all.  But it's too late to change it now.

Tuesday Quilt Block June 16

Back from a family vacation, and I am not missing my Tuesday postings!
I am continuing with my Stars in a Time Warp Series.  Last week, Barbara Brackman discussed white or light ground chintz fabrics.  I have used the fabrics in my stash closest to what she described.



I see I like fabrics with a picotage background!  I especially like the second fabric - that must be why I have two yards of it.  The selvage says it is from a Sturbridge Village line.

Tuesday Quilt block June 9

Stars in a Time Warp series:  The block covered last week was neat stripes: nice lines, not wavy or serpentine.  Here are my two blocks.  Note I also picked a neat stripe for the background fabric too!




I am off on a whirlwind trip to NYC on Tuesday and so I won't be able to hook up with the usual linky parties.  Maybe for Works in Progress Wednesday!
