Are you quilting?

Here is the Lone Star after I finished the corners and triangles yesterday. I don't really think the background is quite this orange, I thought it was a rich tan when I bought it. I finished the top, and started quilting it today.
You can see Smokey approves....I had a hard time laying it out flat as she thought she should help....she will really like it after it is quilted!

I have been quietly lurking in your blog for some time and I just love your work...so creative! You have inspired me to begin quilting myself as I love craft & sewing but have yet to try my hand at quilting...

Jean is this one for a class or for you? Is it a lap or queen size?
You did such a beautiful job. I hope one day I too can conquer one.

It's looking really good! Maybe Smokey wants to help???

Beautiful, Jean. I've not done a Lonestar yet. It's on my GDTOS (gotta do this one someday)list.
Love your choice of colors, too!

The top looks great! I can't wait to see it all quilted!

The striped fabric you were not sure about... Looks great.

Smokey looks very comfortable.

I wish I were quilting. I did get to sew four bibs tonight.

Gorgeous top by the way. Can't wait to see how you quilt it.

Good Job! Lone Stars can be a challenge. Thanks for the tip about not ironing til it's done. I can see her point.
