    Lone stars quilt

    When I thought of making a lone star quilt I was debating to do one big star with different colors or to do 8 stars in the center of the quilt with one color and make two color quilt .Finally I decided to go with the second choice and this is what I came up with. Thanks for looking and happy quilting.Name:  IMG_6308.JPG

    This is show worthy, truly. Absolutely gorgeous. I love your version of the lone Star. I don't think I've ever seen that. The quilting is amazing and impressive.

    I echo these sentiments and I'm asking do you quilt professionally?

    Oh wow! Not at all what I expected to see when I opened the thread. Doing the star in only two colors gives it a completely different look and I love your setting. Left lots of negative space for some beautiful quilting. Very inspiring.
