Default Lone Star Quilt.....

Okay, let's say this Lone Star quilt has taken me way too long to get done. But, the results are well worth the wait, I think. This is Nan and Joe's quilt - this is my second quilt for them. It is always a pleasure to work with Nan and Joe - they are the sweetest couple and the nicest people you will ever meet. Plus, they have been so patient with me. Thank you!

I used a combination of wool and Hobbs 80/20 for the batting. I used So Fine, and Glide thread for the top and lots of it! This quilt took me 70 hours to quilt.

This is my first time quilting a Lone Star Quilt and at first I was a little intimidated. I wasn't sure how I was going to quilt it. I wanted it to be unique and all my own, plus I knew that I needed to have a lot of quilting in the quilt because that is what I do and what Joe and Nan like. So, I stared at the quilt for several months, then realized I better just get going on it. All the quilting designs were designed as the quilt was on the racks.

Each design is different and free hand motion quilted on my A-1 Long Arm.

I knew when I saw that you started this post that I needed to look! OMG Greenfairy, you are so talented and quilt the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I would be happy to just look at this quilt (and maybe touch it) for the rest of my life. Sooo exquisite.
