February goal - achieved


My February goal was to piece Lone star. It was more a wish than a goal and somehow I made it happen :-)
I couldn't resist the morning sun.


I used this tut for Scrappy Lone Star and it is second one I made. It might not be the last one since there are many possibilities.


I know you wouldn't even guess but my original idea was to have that dark brown fabric in the middle to create the main feature but I had the stripy kind of fabric next to each other and that was not looking good. Unpicking was not an option for me so I went with the flow and created this one instead. What a fabulous accident since I really love this final layout :-)


The only part I'm unsure is attaching the background fabric. Not sure if I do it right way but I guess there is no right or wrong as long as it works :-)


Isn't that cool to compare the same pattern in different fabrics. Our Cherry Christmas is still on the wall and the new one was hanging on my design wall before I packed it away. It is gift for a friend but she has to baste and quilt it herself :-)

  18. both of your Lone Stars are fabulous; i have that on my "want to make" list. it is a great pattern for flea market fancy. One of my favorite things about the sewing community is seeing the different fabrics people use and how they can make the same project look different. Your Pantone challenge is very striking!! i can see differnt patterns depending how i look at it. i am looking forward to seeing what your final piece will look like!
