    So i'm thinking, lol, why not a lonestar quilt, what is to stop me? lol Other than fear!!!!! LOL LOL LOL So i'm thinking why not? I must be bored, cus i have other projects i havent finished, but oh well :) So i've decided i can strip-piece a lonestar, simple lol, maybe? lol Course i can do it.

    Here is my question, if you were going to strip-piece a lone star, what width, unfinished width, of strips do you think you would use? I just don't know what's a good size, 2 1/2? or something smaller? :) :) :)

    I don't know what size strips Bab, but I applaud you. Have always wanted to try one, just haven't had the nerve. Good for you!

    Yup, just did all my estimations on paper lol, wonder if they're right though? lol guess i'll find out.

    4 colours, pale green, peach, tan, and peach floral
    8 strips of each colour, 2 1/2 x 14 maybe? lol guess i'll find out :)
