Time Warp Time

I took part in Lori's,  Humble Quilts blog Doll's quilt Swap and have been waiting for my little quilt to arrive which it did this week after quite a trip. My quilt came from Peggy in Texas where the floods were and shortly after she mailed it to me she received it back with the packaging  destroyed by water. After dealing with a burst pipe in her home and a very sick hubbie my little quilt was sent again. Thank you Peggy for making and sending me this adorable swap quilt with all the rest going on in your life just now. 

This first Star is going to be a replacement for one I made earlier for the week with Blotch-Ground Chintzes, as I need it to represent another week's fabric. 

Week 25 asked for Wood Block Prints and although not a Chintz, not even a Repro I think it does well for what is needed.

This the other fabric I used for the Wood Block star.

Week 26 is a Pillar Print and this fabric was given to me.

The second Pillar Print I had in my stash.

This week's star is using a fabric with a Quercitron background.  Now, this was a new one for me. I am enjoying all of the extra information that comes with each week's fabric.

and this is the one from Week 23 that will be my 2nd Star for this week.

Last Saturday and Sunday I attended a workshop at Carol's, Sewn and Quilted with Brigitte Giblin.
At the workshop I made this hexagon bag. I had the hexagons prepared so I managed to get it made in the two days. This is where I met the lady that gave me a piece of her Pillar Print for my Star. A very good weekend.
