Lone Star Quilt


These are the pictures of my first quilt. Of course I would chose an extremely hard quilt pattern like the Lone Star Quilt for my first quilt! All of the diamond pieces were traced & cut out one by one & the majority was hand pieced because I couldn't quite get the hang of it with the machine at first. After I finished this quilt I learned about a wonderful little tool called a Rotary Cutter & the time saving trick of strip cutting. I got the hang of machine piecing and the last 2 or 3 points were machine pieced. Whew! This quilt was all hand quilted in a hoop and was given to my mother for her birthday. I used outline quilting around the diamonds and stencil designs for the blank corner squares & border.
