Lone Stars bursting with color!

 I met with the quilters for the second session of the Lone Star quilt today. I was excited to see how far they had gotten since the first class 2 weeks ago.  Becky had her center all sewn together, and got her set in corners all sewn in during class. She chose vibrant batiks for the center and another batik with blues and pinks for the background.
 Pat also chose batiks in her favorite colors of browns and teals. She cut and got two of her set in sections sewn in.

 Betty used eleven shades of blue. So rich and beautiful. She had  most of her set in sections sewn in when she got there, finished that and then worked on her first border. I had used the background so that the star would look like it was floating.
 Dianne used bright solids and prints to make this sparkling version. If you notice, her colors rotate from red to purple and back to red.

 Cheri used blacks, grays and yellow for this beauty...someone asked her who was getting this quilt and she said ME! We all smiled.

Julie had gotten most of her strip sets sewn together during the first class, but then was worried about cutting it alone, so worked on cutting the strips and sewing diamonds together during this second class. She used 1930's reproduction prints for a soft, antique look. She finished four diamonds today! 
It was a very productive morning and these Lone Stars are well on their way to being finished quilts! I can't wait to finish my working model now!
