My First Lone Star Quilt




Not too long ago I posted a progress shot of this quilt on my design wall.  Now it is finished!  I just sewed down the last bit of the binding this morning.  I made this as a trial of some of the Quiltsmart products that I ordered in to sell.  Wow!  All I can say is that the Quiltsmart made a somewhat difficult quilt very easy to put together.  The joins came together neatly with the iron on interfacing technique used by the Quiltsmart products.  My only concern originally was that the extra interfacing would create a thickness/bulk in the quilt that I might not like or have trouble quilting through.  No, not a problem!  I don't really notice any extra bulk and of course on the long arm, not a problem to sew!   The only difference was that my long arm needle got dull a little faster than normal.  I will definitely make this quilt again!! 

I am very tempted to hang this quilt on the wall somewhere.  The question is, do I have wall space big enough somewhere to hang it?

LOVE this against the grey and the bright pop of binding. Is there a name for that quilting pattern? It really makes the quilt! Beautiful work.

I'm not usually a fan of the lone star design (no idea why - I don't think it is rational) but this is a beauty. Love the grey background, and your fabric choices for the piecing. Seriously nice quilting. Jill (Sydney)
