I hadn't planned on writing a post today until one of my followers asked how I planned to quilt the Lone Star. As a general rule I keep the quilting simple on all the Lone Stars I make. Only one of them has custom quilt it death and that's because it's mine.
I've found that non quilters don't really care for quilt it to death quilts. They want a quilt that feels like what Grandma used to make...cuddly, cozy, and comforting.
Even though the quilting is simple, it took me 4 hrs to get the lines drawn for quilting on the domestic machine. Not because it was a hard design, it was because I kept changing my mind....Imagine that....me...fickle? Surely not!
The corners and triangles will all have 7 quilted lines, those were easy to draw.
I'll stitch in the ditch on both sides of the dark blue frame border. And the star will be straight lines that follow the seams. Simple and as quick as possible.
