    Star quilt 2 of 4 done and in the mail!

    For those of you who struggle with star quilts I promise soon to do a tutorial - they are really easy. This is the second of 4 I am doing on a commission. The first quilt A ever purchased she was way to involved in the choosing of colors, which matched all of the same tone. This time she said I want these basic colors and I will mind my own business, I think she will love it, it is her and it has movement. There was no one around to hold it up for me so please forgive the lack of a good pic. I love star quilts - each and every one some better then others.

    I have several star quilts my mother's friend did for me in the 80s. I keep saying someday I will do one. There are so many patterns I want to try. Great job

    Perhaps you can experiment with the above tutorial until the lone star is done?
    Easy as pie, well maybe easier.

    This is just breathless. I would love to see a tutorial that makes it easier (smile). The quilting is superb. What a lucky recipient. I would love to create and or own something like this. Amazing work. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Wink Absolutely Stunningly Beautiful!

    I would love to have you do a tutorial on this!!! I did one lone star quilt; it turned out alright, but nothing to do a happy dance about...except for the fact that I actually completed it. LOL.
