    This is my second quilt and my first attempt with a giant Lone Star! The method I used was really simple with the help of The Joy of Quilting by Joan Hanson and Mary Hickey...really!

    I tend to shy away from traditional quilting fabrics so these are a blend of silks, taffetas, velvets and polyester blends.

    I am off on another quilting adventure with handmade appliques and my kids can't wait to see who gets the next one!

    Thanks! It's nice to hear a comment like that from someone who knows how to do this! I swear it was that book!! She even shows where to put the pins so the corners line up!

    Awesome job. I love the satiny fabrics you used. Very shimmery.
