Wish Upon A Star Blog Hop

Hi Friends!
This is my day to blog about Stars, because I joined in with the "wish Upon A star blog hop"!

Our leader and top blog hop master  and expert quilter is none other then Carol of 
 http://www.justletmequilt.com All she asks is lots of stars and for every one to visit all the blogs in the hop. List posted on the bottom!
My first project is the star quilt at the top that I made for My precious aunt Pauline, who turned 92 this year but after losing her only son went downhill and couldn't make it to our reunion this year.
I made this for a close friend that had just lost her husband of many years !
You can tell I love stars of any kind!
Made this one for my sweet grand Tatum when she started Oklahoma last year, these are their colors.
Most of my grands and I have 22 have at least one star on their quilts.
The quilt I am working on now is for my daughter and you can see the star!
These two small stars are going into my grand daughter Anna's quilt that is next on my list. I will be working on her's and Michael and Ashley's quilt when I finish my daughter's
Need a few more smaller stars and then I will start it and a little more fabric buying to start Michael's and Ashleys.
Sharing the love of fabric , I am having a giveaway of some sweet fabric fat quarters. Six in all!

Just leave me a comment!
Now go and share the love with all of these great quilters. They will be posting all this week.

Hugs
Babs

Hi Barbara. You sure do love stars and I can see from the ones you have shared that you have made a lot of beautiful quilts with them. I think my favourite is the one you made for your Aunt Pauline because I love all the different blues in the points and all the different colours in the centres.I also like the one you made for Tatum with it's more modern look. I bet she just loves it.

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Wow, Barbara!! Lots of wonderful stars here

Stitchin At Home said...

Your love of stars shine in all the quilts in this post!

Charlene S said...

My 19 grandchildren all have at least 1 quilt made by me. Now I am starting on the great grandchildren.

Carol said...

All of your stars are beautiful! I especially like the quilt you made for your aunt with the 16 patches in the middle. All lovely though! Thanks for sharing!

Carol S. said...

Oh my stars, Barbara, that top quilt for your Aunt Pauline is gorgeous! I love how the squares in the middle are different fabrics and the blues surround them. The other two star quilts are beautiful, too...you definitely are the queen of stars! Thank you for joining in the blog hop and sharing your quilts. It's been a pleasure visiting here this morning. :O)

Hi Barbara,
You share such pretty quilts today! I am so sorry to hear about your dear Aunt Pauline who lost her son. That is very hard, and the wrong order of things. My sister died when my mom was 94 and she was kind of in a daze after that. I love the fabric you are using for your newest quilt for your granddaughter! The pretty colors stand out so well on the darker background.
Happy Tuesday! ~smile~ Roseanne

Joyce Carter said...

All of your Star projects are beautiful, especially the first one. I really love that one. I have made all my grandkids a quilt also and theirs have stars in them too.
Thank you for the chance to win your giveaway.

How sweet of you to make so many quilts for your family members, star quilts are wonderful.

tink's mom said...

Well you are a shining star. Love your quilts, and am sure your family feels so loved being wrapped in them.

Rosalind Gutierrez said...

I agree stars are fun to feature in a quilt especially Patriotic which I enjoy making.

Beautiful quilts. Thanks for sharing!

cjmont said...

wow! 22 grands; you've got a lot of quilts to make. i have 5 grands but they range in age from 33 to 17 months. i am working on a quilt for the youngest; the rest already have quilts. tfs

Suze said...

You do love stars. They are amazing. I wanted to kid you that actually Oklahoma (State)'s colors are Orange and Black. My daughter is an alum and I studied post bachelor some there. There is a huge rivalry between the two schools and I personally believe they are both great schools. You should be proud of Tatum and her choice. I can only imagine the blessing of 22 grandchildren. You are abundantly blessed. I have 4 - 2 in Arkansas and 2 in New Mexico. My son is in a custody battle for his 12 year old son now and it's difficult for me because I've been in his life always even when my son didn't have custody. All these are sad situations and this is difficult due to the mother's drug use and her denial even though the court has the evidence. I need to get busy and make him a quilt. Then I'll need to make one for his sister and then their 2 "step" sister. I adore your stars and thank you for the inspiration.

Sherry said...

So many pretty quilts! Wow!

Jeanna said...

So many beautiful star quilts, I can't select a favorite but the one you made your aunt is at the top of my list. Your family members are so lucky to reap the benefits of your quilting talents!

Hi, Barbara,
You take the All-Star Grandma Award for having 22 grandchildren! Beautiful star quilts and a great start to some more.

Needled Mom said...

You always do such a nice job with your stars. It's nice to see them all together in one post.

Nancy J said...

Your Aunt Pauline, what a huge sad loss, the stars and bright fabric in the centre will be a comfort. Stars always have that spot just right in a quilt,

Jayne said...

I've always admired how adding stars to a quilt can change up the whole look and yours are so pretty! Stars and quilts seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly, don't they? Your gifts to loved ones will be treasured always, Barbara! Bless you.
