    Lake Oswego Stars - Quilt top

    I found this pattern in an old Quilters' Newsletter Magazine from 2004. It appealed to me for a variety of reasons; the mix of blue and green, and the Variable stars set on point. It seems like a good masculine quilt. This is a large lap size, not quite a twin. I see myself repeating this pattern whenever I have a lot of scraps in two main colorways, ex. pink and yellow for a baby quilt, purple and grey for a teen, red and blue for a patriotic look.

    I agree. I really like it too. What size are the individual blocks?

    Great quilt and, yes, a masculine look to it.

    Beautiful quilt! Did you know that Lake Oswego is in Oregon? I wouldn't have known, until we moved to OR.

    Yes, I knew that Lake Oswego is in OR! How did I know that? My DD lived there while she was going to law school in Portland. There's a really nice quilt shop there (that has a great catalog that you can get in the mail -- the Pine Needle). And, as luck would have it, these are my DD's favorite colors. AND she just got engaged. Sp I HAVE to make this quilt for her... it's destiny! Not to mention, your's is GORGEOUS! I take QNM but can't seem to find that pattern. But that's OK... I can wing it. Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this. It's a wish come true as I was really wracking my brain for an engagement quilt for DD. YOU ROCK!!!

    This is quite striking. Love the combination of the star block with the alternate solid block. You have complexity but the alternate block helps this to work up real fast.

    Thanks for sharing

    Wow, I am so pleased that this quilt really speaks to you. Congratulations are in order for your daughter! I can tell you are super proud! I bet you are already rifling through your blue and green fabrics. Have fun!
