    Lonestar Log Cabin finished for my Brother

    This is a huge quilt I made for my dear brother. One of the ladies on the quilting board helped me find the pattern. It measures 98" by 118" - so big that I couldn't turn it to do the borders on my quilting frame. I wanted to do some fancy stitching in the centre cream areas, but had to quilt it edge-to-edge. I think it turned out pretty nice anyway. I called it "Honouring our Ancestors". We are half Native Indian and the eight pointed star is the symbol of the Mic-Mac people. My mother's side were pioneers - hence the log cabin blocks. I sure hope he likes it!!

    Your brother better treasure it!! It is beautiful. My brother would probably say "Oh, a blanket" and then I would have to put a hurtin' on him.
