I finished embroidering my dinosaurs. Aren't they cute? The designs are by Anita Goodesign.
While these cute designs were sewing out I was busy making the Lone Star Quilt.
Lone Star Quilt
Never having made a Lone Star Quilt before I was kind of at a loss. So I went on You Tube and found a wonderful video. I was kind of hesitant at first, because it was a paid lesson. It was GREAT!
The name of the DVD / Video lesson was Jan Krentz Teaches You to Make a Lone Star Quilt. It was a 72 hour rental... only for $3.99. Well worth the price. Its about a hour and half long. You can find it here at:
I used Jan's method through the whole process.
I cut my strips and sewed the strip set pieces together.
Each set was cut into individual strips.
Then sewn into a diamond shape.
Following Jan Krentz's instructions, I made a smaller diamond shape to use as a guide. I cut out small diamonds out of scraps and used a glue stick to make the template. I then numbered each strip so I wouldn't make a mistake while sewing the diamonds together. The smaller piece is used to help line up proper placement while pinning the strip sets.
Here is my completed diamond. Perfect points!!!
I then blocked each diamond set.
And here is the center block! All I can say is Wow... It was very easy. Great instructions. Can't wait till its finished.
