Blogger's Quilt Festival

I have a quilt that I more love too. It's my first Lone Star and it's perfect to show at the quilt-festival-fall-2009.


I was attracted to the Lone star old quilts and I had looked for a class to learn how to do for a long time but I didn't find any where I live...


... so I decided to tray to make it from my self with the help of a great great book of Eleanore Burns.


Here I found clear explications and all the tips to make easily my quilt. I chose modern and colorful fabrics and now I love as it is turned out.

Around the star I added some appliquè blocks as I had seen on the pics of old Lone Star quilts.


Maybe this isn't my nicer work but it's which I'm proudest of.
