    Trace ‘n Create Quilt Template—Lone Star Collection by Clover.
    My first attempt of trying to make the Lone Star was a frustrating mess. I tried the easy way using Quilt in a Day pattern, still a mess. I watched the video of the Nancy Zieman using this tool and I think it's almost too easy! Of course I ordered it.

    Here is the video if interested: http://www.nancyzieman.com/blog/quic...reat-products/

    Interesting.
    I'd call it more of an oversized LeMoyne than a Lone Star. ;-)
    But it does make it easier.

    Have you tried the Quiltsmart interfacing to make a real Lone Star (with multiple diamonds in each section)?

    It's brilliant.
    Only limitation is that you're confined to three sizes.
    And the cost might be prohibitive for some.
    But if you think about how much time you probably wasted in frustration on your first LS, it might be worth it.

    I've done LS's the traditional way and the QS way.
    Love the QS way.
    You can spend the time coming up with really innovative settings instead of fighting with bias and volcanoes in the center. ;-)

    Thanks, I'm making a mini lone star now. I've already cut my setting pieces, will have to see if I have enough fabric to cut them this way instead!!

    Actually ... I should *try* the Y seam at least once.

    On the one with the interfacing why did they not trim the fabric each time? I would not want the extra fabric enclosed.

    It's actually not bulky at all.
    Of course, hand quilting is not an option - more because of the interfacing than extra fabric.

    I've posted numerous pictures of the ones I've made using the QS interfacing.
    Too lazy to go find all the links.
    Here's one:

    It took less than an afternoon to make the eight sections - more time was spent on the setting.

    I have tried the Quiltsmart printed interfacing before with another pattern. I wasn't too pleased with how it turned out but it was easy. I have several Quiltsmart pattern packages, never opened, and one is the Lone Star or Star of Bethlehem.

    Thank you for sharing this BellaBoo. I watched the video and you're right, it does look easy. No Y seams... :thumbup: :thumbup:
    I think I may have to order these templates too.
