Friday & Lone Star progress!!!

I know it is pretty sad to get so excited to see Friday come, but oh well, that is how it is these days. I got the Lone Star about half quilted, so hopefully will be able to finish it this weekend. I like this panto, but sort of wish I had a larger span so that I could do some kind of fabulous free motion design in those big squares and triangles, but I think this will look good too. Sometimes these quilts have applique in those spots, but I didn't want that with this one.
The back is a chocolate brown, & the thread is a gold variegated, so the quilting will show up well.

I got a new camera last weekend, so these are my first pix on it. I think I am going to like it.

I am getting together with friends tonight for our stitch and chat so that will be fun. I am going to work on a fall runner I started this week. We also have cottage blocks to exchange.

BTW, that is not a mess in the back corner, but a storage area....that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

This is gorgeous!!! As for the mess, I didn't see anything and had to scroll back and look when you mentioned your "storage" area!!! Guess that's because I have several areas like that myself!!! :)

Lovely work Jean. One day I will be able to do that too ( I have my fingers crossed, and I have been practicing)

Quilter Kathy said...

Wow...your lone star is fabulous!
I'd like to try one, but just know that the bias and I would end up in a fight!

Gorgeous! I'm working on a (sort of) Lone Star too, and I was so excited to find your post in my feedreader. As always, your work is impeccable.

Jean - Another beautiful quilt. Your color choices are always so beautiful. P.S. I looked twice - I didn't see any mess anywhere!
