Lone Star quilt tutorial coming soon is here, ideas

Star quilts were once the only thing I ever made, maybe because I had no idea how to do squares and triangles. Here are a few pictures to pique your interest in the new tutorial. Star quilts really are a piece of cake.


more choices
this one could go oh so many different ways.

4 stars begin
which one to do first

quilted and ready for its new home
close up 

Quilted ready for binding
This is the one from the lower left in the 4 layed out on the floor pic.
This is like the one on page 72 of my book.
A customer called and said I want the quilt on page 72 in these colors.
I had to really look at the picture to figure it out. She likes it because it looks like spokes. 

Why these colors I have no idea, all I can say is the day I choose them I loved them.
It is a great example of diamond arrangement.

I am new to the blogasphere and I just can't wait for your tut and this. I started paper piecing this star a couple of years ago and just put it all away. All of my diamonds are ready to be sewn together. :-)
I thought about it yesterday and then this morning, I found your blog. Maybe something is telling me to finish it.
Now I am wondering if you are going to paper piece or what. OOHH I just can't wait to see.

The tutorial will be for ordinary piecing, you will find it quite easy.
