I'll show the next quilts in matching order of the way I posted our kids' quilt. First was our son's Lone Star, and here is his wife, Jamie's Red Lone Star. This one was interesting to make, at the time the reds that were available were the murky, dusty colors and I wanted bright bright bright - so it took some time to hunt up enough colors - but I'm determined.
Lovely reds, the strips are sewn together. . .
And points of the star appear (how nice it would be if this were how fast it goes). . .
All the points make a star!
After many tries and previewing borders, I came up with this simple slanting scrappy border, which suits the red star perfectly.
