Tuesday Quilt Block May 26

Busy busy busy!!! I've skipped a week but I have new star quilt blocks to share.

First up: California gold.  As Barbara Brackman describes this, this fabric style was chrome orange or yellow designs on a white background.  My first star fits this perfectly.

The fabric is from the "Dear Jane" line of a few years ago and is a printed gingham.  The next star is from a Paula Barnes fabric.

Last week, Barbara discussed serpentine striped fabric - a favorite of mine too.  Very popular for clothing before the Civil War, apparently.  My first star is from the "Circa 1825" fabric line:

And the next one is of fabric I've had in my stash for awhile.

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
