Lone Star Love
My Lone Star quilt is complete! I am so happy to check this one off the list. It is my interpretation of an antique quilt I saw in a Fons and Porter magazine years ago. The original was also on display in Boston this year, you may have seen it all over blogland.
It was machine quilted by Barbara Persing. She has quilted a few quilts for me and I like how she understood what I wanted. I even drew quilt lines on paper and gave them to her, so she had a map to work from.
This is a very traditional quilt and I wanted traditional quilting.
I wasn't able to see how the original was quilted in the picture but I knew I wanted feather type quilting around the applique.
I am also happy with the quilting on the trees, it looks like bark.
Yep, I like it!
So does my husband, he always comments on how it pulsates when you look at it. I think it may be called Psychedelic Lone Star.
Have a great weekend!
