    I made this wall hanging with pieced diamonds that I had orginally intended to use in a border. My previous attempts at the lone star were pretty dismal. This was better. I also quilted in some stars on the light colored background but you can't really see them.

    This is a beautiful accident! Take a bow!! :wink:

    I wish I had accidents that looked this good. :o)) My daughter told me she wanted a lone star quilt. I laughed and told her to keep on wanting. If I ever make one it's mine!

    Keep up the great work and let's see some more.

    Ok...if that was an accidental lone star, I wish I was more accident-prone! That is one pretty quilt you've made there. I admire how you made all the points match!

    I have to tell it..Be patient! Wait your turn! LOL :D :lol:

    Wonderful - I wish my accidents worked like yours! If you get tired of it, I have plenty of room on a wall.
