Phebe Stars and Fabric Search

I am still working on my Phebe quilt along with a scrap project and a lot of crochet.  I've started working on the stars that are in the outside part of the quilt.



I think there are 134 total stars in the quilt so I only have 130 left to make.  The stars finish at 4 inches.



The original quilt uses only four colors- reds (including pinks), teal blues, golds, and tans/browns.  The only green on the quilt is in the vines and leaves.


My friend Pam has converted me to a "kit maker".  I have bought a box of snack sized baggies and am starting to cut and put together kits for each star so that whenever I get a chance to sew all I have to do is choose a bag with all of my pieces cut and sew them. 




I am looking for some of the original fabrics from the quilt.  These two are from Marcus Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum III collection.

Here it is in both colorways.



This photo is from the original quilt picture included in my pattern.  I would really like to find some of the this hill fabric.   It is from the Moda Chelsea Boutique line.
 
I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.

Thanks for stopping by!
