Stars in a Time Warp


This week we learned about
California Gold fabrics 
at Barbara Brackman's Stars in a Time Warp series.
 
This style of butterscotch-gold prints came into fashion during the California Gold Rush in the 1850s, and continued in use until the end of the century.  Since our local history here in Big Bear Lake began with gold mining, this topic was especially interesting for me to read about.

Saturday

 
This week I finished two quilts, in addition to working on several miscellaneous odds and ends.
 
This patriotic lap quilt was a *special request*
for a friend 
 
 And this little piece will be used as a class sample for an upcoming beginner quilting series at the shop.
