    Thank you for this link I added it to my favorites so I can look at them. I did look through some of the pictures and did get some great ideas. There are pages of beautiful lone star quilts. Mine is going to be a twin size and I wanted to put a smaller star in the corners and then maybe a nice boarder. I'm going to look through more pictures after awhile. Thanks again all of you, Huggies, Fay[/quote]

    If you're thinking of putting stars in the corners you might look at Broken Stars. It is a lot more work though. I just think it's pretty. My aunt made one: old-style. Tracing the template with a pencil, cutting out by hand, sewing together by hand and then quilting by hand...I'm glad I was born when I was!

    You can also check out this link to see lots of pictures. If not on this quilt, maybe another! I'm in the process of making a Lone Star and may never make another one!

    Might I suggest white? That way none some of your lighter colours would have definition. Let us see what you decide...looks exciting!

    I say go with stark white!!! I feel the colors will pop out better, star points will show up great and you can use any color in the star for the binding! MHO
