Green Ohio Stars

The green Ohio Stars have been sewn, now I'm caught up on Ancient Stars



I didn't used to have so many different greens in civil war fabrics. When my friend Deanna moved to Utah, she downsized her fabric stashed and gifted me civil war fabrics. Most of these greens are from her stash.

I've also pieced the 1" finished HST's but forgot to take a picture before I bagged them and stored them with the other blocks.

This is an amazing project, with so many pieces! Never thought about doing the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in Civil War repros, but I can see now how you can make it work.

I love them. I have some Ohio stars in my leftover box - I haven't begun to play with them yet as I'm still working on the table runner I am doing from left over applique

I like Ohio Star blocks (I was born and raised in Ohio).

Beautiful, and what a clever idea using the scrap challenge. Why didn’t I think of that?!? Your quilt will be so beautiful when it’s finished.

I may be doing Nearly Insane under your guidance. I really appreciate all the clear photos and hints you provide, and your quilt is just gorgeous, so thank you for the inspiration!

I didn't know I was that detailed in my NI journey. Just remember it's going to take awhile, have fun with your NI journey.

Very very nice Gretchen. Nice to be caught up!

I like how you mix and match the fabrics in the stars so they all look so different depending upon fabric placement.
