    Colonial Patterns has Lone Star & Broken Star kits that are very reasonably priced ($25.50 - $28.00). They are only the pre-cut diamonds. You would need to supply the set-in fabric. Granted, the fabric used for the diamonds is poly/cotton blend. The point is these kits are great to learn on and you don't have all the cutting to do.

    The trick to the Lone Star is extremely accurate piecing. If you decide to make one, take your time making it.

    Sorry I can't help you with a free pattern but I did want to encourage you to give it a shot. My Lonestar quilt was my second or third quilt. Granted, I'd sewn for years, just not quilted so maybe that helped. I found the pattern in a book at my local library. Sorry, can't remember the name of the book either. It was done in strips and was actually fairly easy. Y-Seams notwithstanding. If you don't mind a seam down the middle of your plain corner, I have directions from my LQS BOM from last year showing that technique. PM me if you're interested. I'd go for it since you really like the pattern. I believe in making what you like. When I first started knitting decades ago I saw a sweater pattern that I loved, bought all the yarn. When I opened the pattern is when I saw 'for experienced knitters only'. I ended up re-writing the instructions in terms I knew and it worked out fine. Go for your lonestar - you won't regret it.
