Lone Star Quilt { free quilt pattern link}

The Lone Star Quilt has been a long time dream of mine to make. I tried once about two years ago and, for whatever reason, it just didn't click.  Wrapping my head around the seam placement was not working out for me.

Fast forward to last week...

Shari Butler asked me a few weeks ago if I would make something with her new fabric line In the Meadow. I adore Shari, so, of course, I said YES!

One of my son's teachers is having a new baby and these fabrics are PERFECT for a baby quilt! I decided it was time to have a go at a Lone Star quilt again.


The pattern is FREE on Moda Bake Shop. It is Jellied Lone Star by Terri Ann Swallow.  It took a few tries and some time unsewing but I finally figured out a way that made complete sense to me for how to make the seams line up properly!

I am a complete visual learner and had to figure out for myself how to conquer my visual block. And I DID IT!


Once I could get the seams right, it was super fast to get the pieces together! I will be making a video today for how to do this technique!




For the piecing I used Aurifil 2405 which is a white but with a hint of pink.  The quilting was Aurifil 2887. It is more of an olive green but melted perfectly in the Robert Kaufman green background!



The in house 11 year old helped me out with photos! We took these at Rose Mount Farm. It is a lovely equestrian center just around the corner from us and their drive is a place of beauty!



The quilting was simple. The quilt is for a baby so I wanted to keep it huggable not dense.

I love your blog. This is the first Lone Star quilt I have ever liked (and pinned) in my 20 years of quilting! Bravo on the color selection, and your piecing is wonderful.
