Lone Star Quilts

I can certainly enjoy a Lone Star quilt and the work it takes to assemble one, but I've never felt the need to make one myself.
I'm sure mine would be waving more then the American flag during a hurricane!!
Have you made a Lone Star quilt? I'd love to see it! Please leave a link in the comment section.

  1. I've always loved lone stars and I guess somewhere in the back of my mind a lone star is a "one day" kind of quilt to me. However, last night for the first time, I had to piece a diamond shape to another piece for a block, and just couldn't figure out how to make it work. Apparently, I not ready -- yet :)

  2. I have an interest in making one but would like to understand first why the Rise Up in the Middle phenomenon happens. I've seen plenty of antique Lone Stars that are just impossibly "risen".

  3. My Lone Star was the first big quilt that I made and had a bit of problem with the center laying flat .... but it worked out for me in the end. Here is a link to my Lone Star http://appliqueandpatches.blogspot.com/2007/03/lone-star.html

  4. I will content myself to enjoying other people's lone star quilts. They are beautiful but I think I'd go nuts with all the bias edges!

  6. Like you, I love the way they look, but have no interest in making one. I think there's just too much piecing for me.

  7. Lone Star is one of my favorite quilt designs. Alas, I believe I'm with you, mine would be very friendly and wave all the time! There are a lot of quick method Lone Star quilts and it will probably be that's the way I'll ever get one made!

  8. I love lone stars and have been working on one by Minick and Simpson. They had developed a pattern in the American Patchwork mag. It is a king size center with mini stars all around.. I had posted starting pics a while ago but will be finishing it this weekend so that I can start quilting it..

  9. I have made a Lone Star - very early in my quilting career . . . before I knew better *s* It's lumpy and bumpy and not all that swell. I can't share a photo *whew* because I have not yet located it in the unpacking. I plan to make another someday. I'd love to see if I've improved any over time.

  11. No no, I'm not dragging out my ufo, I'll feel guilty, lol. I'll probably make another one before I finish that one.

  12. I love Lone Star Quilts but am so scared of Y-seams that I doubt I'll ever make one - until then I'll forever cherish the one my Momma Newt made and gave to my parents when they married.... to take a look click my blog post below.
