    Default Spiral Lone Star

    Karen found this Lone Star picture on Pintrest. No pattern available, taught through a workshop at some LQS. It looked overwhelming at first, then I figured out how to make the strips and sew the points to make the colors spin. Once I figured it out, I had to make it! So, instead of sleeping, I built my star. Finished it off with borders today. Thinking I want to enlarge it to make it a bed quilt, if I can find more of this fabric or something compatible. It's Patrick Lose Sunstreaks, his other lines (Basically Patrick) will probably work, and I have lots of that collection.

    Thinking I'm now in love with Lone Star quilts!

    Absolutely stunning!

    Which method are you using for your lone stars? I love them, but have been intimidated with Y seams, etc.

    I have been looking at the one on Moda's site for strip piecing, sort of similar to a bargello. http://www.modabakeshop.com/2015/04/...tar-quilt.html

    I'm not just buying fabric, I am supporting the economy...

    A bad day in the sewing room is better than a good day at the office.

    It is strip pieced. Took 2-1/2 hours from piecing the strips to building the 8 points. No Y seams. I used that same method as the Moda one, just used 4 basic pieces, not 5.

    Turned out great and the black really makes that star stand out well.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?
