Lone Star Quilt-another UFO completed


Finally completed my Lone Star quilt! I pieced this top months ago and put off quilting it until I got some commissioned pieces done. This is the first pieced diamond star quilt I completed. It is based on the Starlight Express quilt in Jelly Roll Quilts book by Pam and Nicky Lintott. The finished measurement is 92″ x 92″ and it fits my queen size bed nicely.



I am a retired grandmother living in hot and sunny Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. I have a couple books on Lone Star quilts, I so want to make one someday if it that special diamond strata cutting looks scary. Congrats on finishing your lovely Lone Star!


    1. Go for it. You will be pleasantly surprised that they are not as difficult as they look. The cutting is not bad and the instructions were easy to follow. Of course, I changed the pattern a little to make the star bigger. I had the most trouble matching the seams and did not do the best in that area but it is done and I will enjoy it. Hope to see you posting one soon. 🙂
