    This was a fun retreat. I like brights so used fabric that I already had and cut my own 2.5 inch strips. Others used a jelly roll and each of their stars came out different and were lovely.

    I have not been on many retreats, but the woman who has organized these two makes it a lot of fun and relaxing.

    Surprisingly it wasn't hard to do. I was pretty tenuous when I started, but it made sense shortly and then they went together more quickly. I would encourage you go try one. It was actually quite fun.

    Thank you all for the encouraging comments. The colors are actually brighter and richer in tone, but pics don't always post true to color (smile). I appreciate your looking.

    Really, really nice. I have never attempted one because I was told that when you make one, you will never make another one, that is why it is called 'the lone star'. Maybe
    I will put it on my to do list since you didn't think it was that hard.
