    Little Lone Star Quilt

    I have a niece getting married in a couple of weeks, and she loves the color purple. So I made her this little lone star quilt (the finished size is only 12" X 12") as an addition to her real gift (cash). This thing just about did me in. It was done with a paper-piecing technique and I had a horrible time getting the points to match. I ripped out every single point at least once, and a couple of them still did not match up. Grrrrr. But, overall I am satisfied with the outcome. Someone once told me if you stand back 4 feet and you can't see the error, it passes the test!

    My DH made the hanger for me. Isn't it cute?

    I think she will be thrilled.
    I would also like to know more about the hanger. What did he use for the "wire"?
    I have a small wall hanging type thing to use on our door on our next cruise, I want it to be reversible so that might work just great.
    Perhaps he would be happy to make more????

          Purr-fect! Love the quilt and the hanger. What's the hanger made from - it appears to be metal.
          Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
          it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                  Thanks all! My DH says the hanger is made from 16 gauge wire that he twisted before shaping. He then lacquered it with a lacquer spray. You can get the wire from Home Depot or Lowes.

                    I have a template for the Lone Star...no Y seams, just straight seams but I havent tried it yet. Looks easy enough, I just have to find the time. Here is a link...click on the "Watch Demo Video" link

                    You star looks gorgeous, especially with the hanger!! I wish MrWindy knew how to shape wire...i'd have a house full of those hangers!!
