    This is the latest quilt I made. Will be shipping it off to Arizona in a few days.
    I like to make quilt for this lady. She calls me when she wants a new one tells me the size, colors she want and leaves the rest to me. Hope she will be please with what I did.
    I hadn't made a lone star for so many years I forgot how to do one. Had to go searching on the web for instructions.
    Picture may look a little dark but if view full size I think it will look better.

    Thank you all.
    There were a few "fists" for me in the quilt. Most of the fabrics are batiks (a first), some I bought from the LQS, but ordered some on-line (another first). The other first was to sew my two stripe and the brown borders all together in one long piece to use as one border and mitered the corners. Worked out just right, had about 6 inches left over from that and only a few inches left over on the last border...that was good because I had bought that fabrics about 4 yrs ago.

    If you want a king size, this site has instructions. That happened to be the size I needed for this quilt, so worked out well for me.

    Only problem with these instructions that I noticed was for the yardage needed....one was off, but you could use the left over for binding.
