”Lone Star Done and Hung”

I wrote this post back on September 25th, when I finished the Lone Star that I thought worked best outside my quilt room.

Then I fell in love…

Here’s what I wrote in September:

“Yes!

This version works exactly as I wanted on the wall outside my quilt room.

That luscious background color is Kona’s “Nightfall.”  I’ve fallen in love with it.

I had to patch nail holes and do some touch up painting on this wall.  Didn’t it come out nicely?

 

HEre’s the view into my quilt room.

THEN, I finished quilting the patchwork version that I just thought would be fun.  And, I fell in love with it.

Here’s what exists now, in mid-October:

 

 

And here’s the quilt room now with the other Lone Star moved in and the little piece I did in a Timna Tarr workshop relocated—on the far left.

Now I’m happy!

And I’ve moved on to finish up working on the Radiating Log Cabin blocks I had wanted to make from Season 1 of the Color Collective—more on that to come.

AND, I’m itching to start Season 2.  Look at the quilt Tara Faughnan made from the first block of Season 2:

It’s another freezer paper method!  I loved learning that method in Season 1.

    • No, you don’t have to start The Color Collective with season 1. But, I think there may be a deadline, so if you are thinking of doing season 2, email immediately.
