Black and White Retro TV Stars
April a year ago, a big crowd of us went to Black Rock on retreat. We had friends from two other states come to join us and, by gum, we had a wonderful time. Dear Kathy thought a block swap was in order, and nearly everyone chose to participate. The theme she came up with was "Retro Black and White TV Stars." We were to use only black, gray, and white fabrics, to make 12" finished star blocks, and that was pretty much it. I wanted my quilt to be big, so I made a variety of blocks to swap and saved a bunch for myself. I had a lot of fun trying out some new, complex star patterns.
If you look closely at Block 2B, you'll find a real retro TV star, Lucy, and in Block 4D are The Three Stooges.
