    This is the easiest pattern I have made that looks like the Lone Star. It goes together like a nine patch. It is all HST and rectangles. Super fast.

    One tip: Don't use directional fabric.

    I used Eleanor Burns Radiant Star, I bought the booklet and the DVD. It was super easy and super fast. Best of luck to you.

    Hello Sweetpea...
    I've walked through this easy method a while back.. Once you get the hang of it you can get through a star in a day. I like using strip piecing whenever possible.. Here's where I've documented the method I use.
    Hope this is helpful.

    Try Quilt Smart. They work up fast and perfect. Ive made 3 of them. One of each size? If your local shop doesnt carry it go to quiltsmart.com

    Try Debbie Maddy's website. She has lots of star quilt patterns that are all made with squares & half square triangles. They are simple, beautiful & go together quickly. Beautiful results & all you do is select the pattern from her web site & go from there. Hope this helps.
