    Default Looking for an easy Lone Star Quilt pattern..

    Hi, not been on for awhile. Busy starting new business...more later on that.

    I thought the lone star was 5 points, but finding others that have six points. Arrgh. Which is it? Any thoughts, ideas, help, wine, etc. gratefully accepted.

    Every lone star quilt I've seen had 8 points.

    This one does not have "Y" seams. http://www.modabakeshop.com/2015/04/...tar-quilt.html

    Lone Star - Easy - I think that is an oxymoron. The Texas Lone Star does only have 5 points - but the typical Lone Star Quilt has 8.

    Mine has 8 points. https://www.google.com/search?q=lone...w=1277&bih=712

    I wonder what star you are seeing that has only five points? It's most certainly a different star.

    If you're not interested in sewing "Y" seams here's a tutorial that eliminates them. http://prettylittlequilts.blogspot.c...asic-star.html

    I highly recommend you watch this video at Fat Quarter Shop with Edyta Sitar. She is known for her 8-point stars. It's an excellent beginner video. I'm hoping to make the star she demonstrates in the intermediate lesson. You'll see that one listed to the right of the beginner star video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?annota...&v=qV-LPJpl0JU

    If you purchase the quilts art interfacing you can accomplish the quilt with jelly role strips and no cutting funny angles.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=R1CLjUTJbLE

    I have always wanted to try this. My LQAS has.....so many projects, so little time. Have fun with whatever you decide!
    Blogging ahead.....research in quilting and sewing with a dab of cooking/recipes too.

    We are going to do a small Lone Star at the Fall forum retreat. It is from a pattern in a book called Jelly Rolls. It is very easy to build by strip piecing, and uses a ruler with a 45 degree line. Piece of cake!

    This Texan knows Our Star has 5 points. With that said, I just look at the source and shake my head and admire the beauty of the 8 points and say-- what a pretty star.
    FYI--- I am working on a Lone Star with 8 points
