I've long admired Lone Star quilts, but it wasn't until I saw the beautiful one that Lynne (Lily's Quilts) designed for Make It, Take It that I felt I was up to the challenge.
The pattern uses strip piecing to make this pattern really accessible. I scaled it down slightly, choosing to cut my initial strips at 2½". The finished quilt is about 35" square - a great wallhanging or baby quilt size.
I don't know what inspired the colour story here - I started with that Anna Maria Horner echinacea print and added complementary colours. The background is Essex Linen in Black, one of my all-time favourites.
Simple wavy lines for the quilting were done in an organic design for a quick finish. This was a 2015 Finish Along project that I didn't properly blog because the photo I took in my sewing room really wasn't up to snuff. Not that this one is much better. We moved and I lost my lovely arbour hanging spot that I could use without help. Now I need quilt holders and that is a whole new challenge, never mind finding a suitable backdrop. Consider it a work in progress, I suppose. *grin*
