Tuesday quilt block Dec. 22

I have been busy - nearly a month away! And I 'had' to purchase fabric for the next star (last star) presented by Barbara Brackman on her blog.  I have really enjoyed this year's quilt along and the pattern was certainly easy.  Thank you Barbara, I learned so much.

The Nov. 25 fabric type was stick prints and cracked ice, a print style from 1810 - 1840.   Hard to find this fabric type now but I did my best:

With the bonus of some paisleys thrown in too.  Only one fabric this week.

My plans for my star blocks: I plan to split these into two groups, 'early' and 'late', and make two quilt tops with simple sashing.  If I don't have enough stars for the size I want, I will make more.  I certainly know more about the fabric types, and I have a deep stash with other fabrics I passed over.

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
