    Sun-Burnt Lonestar

    I completed a very cheery Lonestar quilt the other day. I just love it. This is my second Lonestar (the first was much larger) and I made it a wall hanging size.

    I took it to work and hung it on my wall above my desk. It was the perfect day for it too as we just got dumped with about 8 inches of snow and everyone was feeling the cold...it just brightened the place up.

    I'm very pleased with the effect of the striping in the centre star...looks a bit spiral-y.

    Thanks for looking!

    oooooooohh how nice, YukViv!!
    Your centre stripe is nice, just as the outer wavy gold/brown/rust is ... gives the sun ray effect.

    Perfect colours/frabrics. And so nice you can have it at work for you and others to enjoy it's warmth year round, and especially amidst your latest snow dump!

    (BTW I have the final BCS Clue!)

    that is sure beautiful, and bet you live in a beautiful place. We do also (Crescent City, CA) but it is a 'different beauty' then where you are. Thanks for sharing the wonderful job you did on the star.

    I too love the spiral effect your stripe in the center created. You did a great job with all of your fabric selections on this. I would have been afraid to try what you did but it works so well I am tempted to do another lonestar myself with selections like you have used. They are modern and vibrant and really add motion to your star. Great job!!

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Very pretty lone star. That's too bad you are getting snow, as it is spring.

    Well Lady this is one AWESOME Star. The fabric you used goes together so well and the effect it leaves is just great. Would love to see the first Lone Star you did. I have been wanting to make one but life has gotten in the way. Did you PP this? Was it hard? Might have to get back to you for help when I make mine. Can't say enough about how much I like this. Thank you so much for sharing. Bet the folks at the office love it also. BrendaK
