    First try at Lone Star Quilt

    This wall hanging kept me sane this afternoon as I watched my favorite football team go to 4 overtimes before winning the ballgame! Anyway, this was a kit. I thought I was being very accurate in cutting and in keeping my seams 1/4", HOWEVER, I had problems. I thought I would try a bed size one, but am not at all sure after this experience.

    It is a gorgeous quilt! After I completed my LoneStar I said I would never do another; but now after a couple years more experience...I think I will try doing another one.

    It is wonderful. Eleanor Burns has a great book out to make these with. her directions are simple and easy. Just google Eleanor to get to her website. I think you will like her methods.

    Great job!!! I didn't see any problems from the picture. I would go for the bed size. Sometimes we're our worst critic! Remember: there are no quilt police:-)

    I think it looks fabulous! I know that the Lone stars can be so tricky...I am working on my 2nd one now...the first one I really had to do a lot of hand piecing to get all of the points to line up...they are such pretty quilts, tho...so, I just keep reminding myself of that..lol.. Great job by you!! Pat yourself on the back!!

    Very nice, Rachel. I purchased Eleanor Burns' book and thought I would try her method.

    It's very nice. Now that you've made one, your next one will be even better.

    I am assuming your frustration was directed at the ballgame (boo hiss) and not your incredible wallhanging. Im new and unfamiliar w the pattern so didn't think I would like it as scrolling thru your post. It sounded sort of south-western-y to me and not my taste. The picture popped up and not true not true, I love it front and back. Go for the bed size!!

    Very pretty. If you had problems, you can't tell after the quilting. Great job. I also started one, but it's buried in my UFO pile somewhere.

    Beautiful quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
