Arkansas Here I Come!!
The orange one I think is one of my favorites....I call it Orange-a-licious....thanks to Stephie for the name.
I will be teaching at the Village Quilting in Bentonville where we will be creating beautiful lone star quilts my fast and easy method.
I have taught lone stars many times, and even total beginners make beautiful lone stars! One of the gals in my guild just brought the one she made in my class a few months ago. It was a beauty. Sadly, I did not have my camera for a picture. I will post some lonestars of mine, and a few of Freddy Moran's that I quilted for her. I am totally addicted to lone star quilts, but mine are usually not very traditional in fabric selection and colors. I hope many of you will join me and Barb Hamernik for the Lone Star class. The shop has the details and supply list. Just bring some great fabric, and don't forget the chocolate! We will have a great time making lone star quilts. They really are easy to make. Most classes several gals will get the star done and often the entire background.
Don't let this quilt scare you off.
I am also working on a couple lone stars in the modern quilt style. Will post the parts as I progress. I think I will save them for class as sample to show you how they go together.
See you in early September. Judy Irish
By the way, I started with one, got going on some more, and thought 6 is a good number, then a dozen, and why not a baker's dozen...now I am nearing 20....maybe I should go for 50....that is a good number!
