    Quiltsmart has a pattern that makes it easy and accurate (also very heavy) and beautiful.

    I just remembered. There is printed interfacing. You have to see if your quilt stor carries it. I do know that A Heart Like Yours in Spokane Washington carries it. There was some classes for the stuff and they turned out nice. Comments I heard were that they could actually make the lone star. You could always check that out.

    This was my second quilt..I used the quilt smart pattern and found it was easy once I figured it out...(which was when the quilt was almost finished...lol) but I wanted to give my sister something special for taking such great care of my mom...it's by no means perfect but she loved it....

    The angles, the bias edges, not something for a beginner to start with

    check out kaye woods. she has a pretty simple way of doing it and she also has the printed interfacing kit on her website.

    Fons and Porter did a 2 part show on Lonestar. Much simpler construction that some patterns call for.

    It isn't a quilt for a beginner but there's not much better quilt to teach about bias, angles and the like! It was my first quilt with the exception of squares and boy I learned a lot! It took me about a year and a half to make it (hand quilted) and I turned out awesome! My sister still uses it and loves it. I suggest strongly getting a mentor if you as a beginner are going to do this.

    I would watch Sharon Schamber's video's on You-tube for how to do the Y seams.She shows it in a way everybody can understand and do.And it's easy,and very accurate.And Lea Day on U-tube started out with a non beginner quilt,and won ribbons at the fair.So,it really depends on how you've done your homework.If you've studied a lot,sewed before,and learned from books and videos,then you most certainly could take it on.But if you haven't the foggiest notion of anything about quilting,or no sewing experience at all,then no.Not for that type of beginner.You'll only end up frustrated and aggravated and throw the towel in,when if you do an easier one,even start out on pot holders,then place mats,then lap quilt,then one for your bed.And 'finish' every one before starting the next one 'You'll enjoy it so much more and will love it.It gets addictive.And come back with any and all questions as there is a wealth of knowledge here on the board and they are always ready and willing to help anybody starting out,Intermediate,or a pro even sometimes needs help too.We all need help at some point.And there are no silly questions,only questions that have an answer.Good luck
