    Lone Star in Progress....

    I'm putting together this Lone Star to try my hand at hand quilting. Everything is laying nice and flat so far, I've been really careful. I plan the background to be a white-on-white, and haven't completely decided on borders yet. Thanks for looking!







    The colors are more "springy" than in the pics, what looks peach is a soft pink, etc.

    Being a Texan, the Lone Star is one of my favorites, anyhow. Good job! Mine always pooch in the middle.
    Very cheery and happy colors, too!

    You are doing a fine job. Since you want a name, how about Texas Spring? (or spring in Bethlehem, since another name for that pattern is the Star of Bethlehem.)

    How wonderful that spring is coming to the quilt board. It looks good - both in color and workmanship.

    Thanks all! QM, I think Texas Spring is a great name.

    Toto's Mom - I made one many years ago when I first started quiltmaking - I had a about a D-cup bulge in the middle! I had no idea back then what I had dove into, didn't understand bias or set in seams...lol. Hopefully this time with more knowledge and experience it'll be better!

    You are doing a great job. Will you also hand quilt the star?
    Colors are so soothing
