Lone Star Quilt Along

Quilt Times & Jaynes Quilting Room are co hosting a Lone Star Quilt Along/Support Group! Thank you both. No patterns are provided but lot's of pattern suggestions, info & support! So if your interested, go check it out.
Here's a few of the Lone Star books I've used & or read plus there's a couple of great instructional DVDs too. You can find them all on Amazon. I haven't seen the Jackie Robinson DVD yet but there's a short promo on You Tube.

Lot's of great ideas!


I've made 4 of these, all strip pieced. So much easier. I'll admit here that my 1st was a 12" mini. Not the best one to start with & the center came out all wonky! But I finished it anyway... And I'll even show pictures.
2nd one was a king size Radiant or Broken Star. I took a class from a young Amish woman in Libby Montana around 1998ish or so. It was in blacks, grays & burgundies. My oldest daughter has it & after looking everywhere tonight I could not find any pictures, asked & hoping to get one soon.
The 3rd one was made for a friend & her husband at her request, I got the top done & then she changed her mind so it was never quilted but here's a picture of it before I sent it to the Australia Brush Fire victims. I used Eleanor Burns Radiant Star book.
And last is another that hasn't been finished. This one is lap/baby size & also made using the Eleanor Burns book. I plan to pull a bunch of Batiks and add pieced & solid border to turn it into a twin, hopefully!

The Peach, Rust & Green one I sent to Australia
My Batik PhD. Haven't found the top to take a better pic, sorry

And here is the Mini Wonky Western Star! Someday I really need to make another & retire this one!

So what am doing this time? I have no idea. But you'll be the 2nd to know, right after me...
