Lone Star Party! {a finished quilt}


Who wants to party alone?  In this quilt, the lone star officially has friends, and I love the way they look together.  Like a sky full of stars, the lone star party is an improv collection of seven different sized lone star blocks.

With a white background, the quilting is difficult to photograph but I love how Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting interpreted my request for movement between the stars.

She also quilted each star beautifully.

It’s gorgeous and I’m grateful for such beautiful quilting.


I used a Melody Miller print for the backing and another Cotton and Steel print for the binding.

As I mentioned when I shared the quilt top, this idea had been in my head for a long time.  It is so gratifying to bring a mental picture to life and have it work the way you hoped.  This quilt is a new favorite for sure!
