It is done and delivered!  Kathy loves is and I think I’ve convinced her that she should enter it in the Ky state fair. It is stunning in person.

She made this for her daughter in Florida and it will have matching shams on her bed. Kathy knew her daughter wanted fall color and quilting that was a bit more contemporary in design. Traditionally a lone star will have feathered wreaths and feathered setting triangles.

The batting is a Quilter’s Dream Poly/Cotton blend that is snuggly all by itself. I’d love to get a roll of this stuff. It is really supple and drapes beautifully.

I used a green thread that would stand out against that background in order to draw attention to it. It looks like embroidery, doesn’t it?  Love it!

I told Kathy that this was one quilt that was hard to give back to her. I know I’ll never make a lone star of my own and her’s is gorgeous!  Do you think she should enter it in a show?  Let me hear you in the comments!

  1. Very pretty, I like the way the strip diamonds are at the top and the bottom was this strip pieced and those were some of the extra strips?

  2. Yes! That is exactly right.
