Another February Friday Finish!

In December, I needed to make a Lone Star Quilt for my Island Batik challenge. I made this pink Lone Star using Baby Bloomers (a signature collection by Kathy Engle for Karen Overton). You can read more about it HERE.

I LOVED this quilt SEW much, I went to my Island Batik pre-cuts and found a strip pack of Naturescape (by Jerry Khiev) which came with a 2 yard cut of “Large Netting – Pineneedle” (a dark green). It was the PERFECT fabric for my centre star and to radiate out to the star points.

Enter EQ8, to plan it! I downloaded the Naturescape fabrics and the dark green into the program. Paired it with the solid grey.

It’s a totally different look than the pink one, but I like it! Here are some pictures of the quilt in progress. I’m not a great pinner, but for this quilt, I measured and pinned EVERY. SINGLE. INTERSECTION. And, for the most part, the seams were pretty good. But I’d be lying if I told you that everyone was perfect!

And here’s a picture of it finished! I quilted it with Aurifil #2615

I quilted it the same as the previous lone star – with small arcs in the diamonds and fake feathers on the grey!

Quilt Stats

  • Fabric: Island Batik Naturescape strip pack, solid grey and Large Netting – Pineneedle
  • Size: 62″ x 62″
  • Hobbs 80/20 on the inside
  • I quilted it with Aurifil #2615 (Aluminium) on my Domestic Machine (Janome M7)
  • Bound with Large Netting – Pineneedle

Will I make another Lone Star Quilt? Probably, but not for awhile! LOL!!! You know … pinning all the intersections … (grin)

And, just for the record, this is my 2nd UFO finish for February! WooHoo!!

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  2. Hi Gail, what a gorgeous quilt. The Lone Star is my favourite quilt pattern (and the first one I made, before I knew better lol). One day I will definitely make another, possibly following the rules this time! Thanks so much for linking up to Free Motion Mavericks. I love your FMQ!
