    WOW! My husband is from Cyclone and went to school in Rogers. Do you ever go to the Cyclone Corral? Or Green's Sausage House? My first husband had cousins living in Rogers.

    We have a great quilt shop in Bandera called Gone Quiltin' ( http://www.gonequiltin.com/ ). I think the owner is putting together a retreat for June somewhere around Bastrop.

    Oh that sounds like fun, and centrally located too! Keep us posted, maybe at least some of us could get together there.

    Hi Cherry! Yes! We're going on Friday! We'll look forward to seeing you again! I'll have on my usual "uniform"...a tie-dye tee-shirt with the "Real Women Quilt" logo. There are a couple of others we hope to meet up with while we are there too! This time we really should use our cameras to get photo! Neoma and DJ and I are traveling together...we love to laugh and rarely find ourselves without an excuse to do so! Have you been to the Tyler show before?

    Hey, fellow Texas quilters!!! I need help!!! I am a Texan, but am married to a "foreigner" (an Ohioan!) I want to paint a block similar to the barn blocks from up north to mount on my fence. What I want to do is create a pattern that combines elements of the Texas star with elements of the Ohio star. Here's my problem...I have a pattern for the Ohio star, but I can't seem to find one for the Texas Star or the Lone Star. I have looked all over the net, but to no avail. Any ideas for me? All help is greatly appreciated!

    OK, now...most of the Texas Star quilt patterns I've found were 6 pointed stars, but the 8 pointed star also seems to be called a Texas Star and/or Lone Star. However, the star of Texas really only has 5 points, as in the Lone Star Flag. I found a book called Lone Star Quilts and Beyond for sale on Amazon.com (not 5 points), and a couple of web sites: womenfolk.com and www.lizardofoz.com.au. Still no 5 pointer. Also found a web referrence called the Texas Ohio Star quilt but each time I tried to access that site the page would not come up. I also have a book by Maggie Malone called "120 Ptterns for Traditional Patchwork Quilts, and that Texas Star and Lone Star has 5 points, but is one 2-piece star appliqued on a plain background circle on top of a square -- not at all as pretty as the 6 or 8 pointed stars made of mulitple diamonds and multiple colors. Those use a 60 degree diamond (for the 6 pointed star or a 45 degree diamond for the 8 pointer. Hope this helps. You might do better with Google. Ruth
