I made a lone star quilt ages ago in a workshop with Irene Carrig. Mine was in blue, yellow, red, with applique in the corners. A few weeks ago I ran a Big Star Day with Penny, and one of the quilts we did was a lone star. I got intrigued with this quilt all over again, but was thinking of using 8 fabrics instead of 6, and not attempted to blend them at all.
you then have to cut them up, 16 of each set, at 45degree angle. this is the tricky part - keeping then straight.
I find they are more stable if turned face down. Use the cutting board and ruler angle to get them right.
Now, I have to decide what to put in the corners. Do I do some excellent applique? Or stunning hand quilting? The squares will be about 23", so a lot of space to fill in. First I have to work out what fabric to use, and I was kind of thinking of a toile, or a tone on tone, then I could do either the applique or quilting, depends on how I feel about it once completed.
