    Lone Star Project

    It's me again...another quick question. One of the mini classes is for a Lone Star table topper and it says 9 JR strips are needed. Should these be solids, batiks, tonals, or anything I want? Does there need to be a certain number of strips of light-medium-dark? Thanks again.

      I used a gradient selection of strips. I can't post a picture here, but I will post it in the regular section under tutorials. I used one dark 2 color 1, 3 color 2, 2 color 3 and one light. The lone star works out best to have a gradient of colors from light to darling. You can use solids, batiks, small prints, but remember the color values go from dark to light. You will need about 1/2 yard of background fabric to complete the top of the project ( not including the backing and binding.)

        Thanks so much, Jean. I am very excited to try this. I have a pixie strip from Jinny Beyer that I think will work well. I'll just bring the roll and pick out the strips there. Is a template needed?

          No template, just a longer ruler with a 45 degree angle line printed on it. And the Jinny Beyer Pixie Strip will probably work fine. Just make sure the strips have enough contrast in value.

            Thanks so much, Jean. This makes this a little clearer to my "peanut" brain!!

                I posted a picture of the unfinished star, it is 29" when all the segments are put together. You could finish it as it stands or put borders on it to make it a little bit bigger. If done in pastels, and with a border added, it could be a bright and cute baby quilt. Otherwise, it will make a nice table topper or wall hanging. The original pattern calls for making 4 of the stars, sashing and bordering them to make a very generous size lap quilt, 76" square. I found the pattern in " Jelly Roll Quilts" by Pam and Nicky Lintott, D&C Publishing
