Lone Star Quilt Number 4 - Jamie

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.

So pretty. Are you still giving up quilting? Did you get all your kids and grands covered? I'm going to be in Whatcom Co, the first weekend of February. I'd love to see you if it fits in my schedule. Will KIT.

I think that red and white are my favourite colours for a quilt - this one is beautiful, and I agree with you about the border - perfect!

How in the world will I ever pick a favorite!!!???

Of course red and white is always fun! I am most impressed with the slanted border you decided on!
How clever you are JoAnn!!
