    I'll have to look up that interfacing. I've always wanted to do a Lonestar. I love all the room you have for quilting on yours!

    So how does the quilt smart interfacing make a lonestar easier?? wish I had seen this a long time ago, lol. I'm currently working on an all hand pieced lonestar that I have been working on for a very long time.

    Thank you for this info on Quiltsmart, I do have a question after watching the video. When/how do you sew the rows together? The video didn't show that; I assume that maybe you sew the rows after you have the first two rows completed? and then after each row is finished you sew it to the previous? It looks neat and I will be looking for the product. So smart!

    Now THAT is slick! I, too, watched the video, and had the same question as sandyl- I assume at some point you'd pinch the 1/4" seams together on the back and sew 'em up? I've got a Lone Star PIW, and this would make the process SO easy!

    I have another question: How much bulk do you have in those first sections where she DIDN'T cut off the triangle piece underneath? Why did she not clip off that one where she clipped out the bulk from under the others in the row?

    Is your quilt "stiff" with that extra layer of interfacing underneath?

    the quilt is not very stiff......I clipped the triangles after sewing the next one on........I did all the diamonds then sewed the squares and triangles on each diamond............the best part there were no Y SEAMS.......then u just line up like u normally would with diamonds

    WHAT VIDEO ARE YOU PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT? I've been scared of triangles since my first (and only) experience with them. Is there hope for me.......?

    @ Sierra: You can find other vids directly at their site, but here's one specific to the Lone Star using the product: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1CLjUTJbLE
