    Am I seeing this correctly? Did you not have any set-in seams because you split the background fabric? The first Lone Star I made would have been appropriate for Madonna's bra in her "pointy boob" video. The second was very frustrating with more unsewing than sewing but more successful. However, I hated the set-in seam part of it. If I am understanding what you did, then I might actually try it again. Could you give more detail about the background pieces as they seem to be of various size and shapes. How do you cut them and how do you determine the size, shape? Thanks for sharing.

    I also have drawn a picture.....as you can see, no set in seams.there are always 2 triangles going on top (green line) and 2 underneat (blue line).set in the trinagles by using the numbers in right order.The pink line shows where to place the ruler.This is just an option, you can cut 1/4 inch away of the starpiece or even go a few inches away....depends really the size you like to have.

    drawing,set in triangles

    Been wanting to make a lone star for a long time and bought a plastic template for individual cutouts. This is far faster. Looking forward to this one.

    You did a nice job on the Lone Star pattern and giving us the tutorial. For some reason I can only save the download and when I pull it up, I don't see any icon for printing from Microsoft. Since I am not working any more, I have lost the updates on Microsoft.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to post this. My Mom made several lone star and broken star quilts. She offered to make one for me, but I never got around to picking out the fabric and now she is gone. Maybe I'll tackle one using this pattern. You make it look simple!
