Hey-Hey for Lone Stars!


Hey, can you believe we are winding our way to the first Saturday of May - and a 5th installment of the Lone Star Quilt Along? It will be Sue of the blog Quilt Times' turn to perform hostessing duties. Are you getting ready, Sue?



I have to admit that I have not spent very much time working on mine in the last month. I had it all laid out on the guest bed, then Easter approached, and with Easter came guests, so the bedroom had to be readied for DD's boyfriend.

Alas, the folded Lone Star stilll sits where I left it before Easter.

Sigh.

Well, don't despair! Even though I haven't been working on it, I have had Lone Stars on my mind since our April quilt along date. I have gathered lots of pictures and have a variety of Lone Stars to share. Some have been internet finds, while others I saw at the quilt show I attended in Cincinnati.


This Lone Star was one displayed at the Cinci show. I am particularly taken with it, as it, too, looks to be a Bursting Star, like the one I am making. I wish I had read the information on this quilt. My version is from an old Better Homes and Gardens book, and this is remarkably similar. Very pretty. It inspires me to get the lead out and get to work on mine! I am so close to having the top completely constructed!!

Stop back tomorrow, quilters! I will have more Lone Stars to share!

Happy Quilting!

Lone stars give me a fit! I can't seem to get the hang of them. I used them a little in my center medallion on my most recent quilt top finish, and it was a painful experience! :-)

Lovely show quilt. Someone really put a lot into that one didn't they. the quilting is inspiring too. Sounds like no time like the present to get everything back out.
