Welcome to my day of It's Cool to be Square!
I'm excited to share with you, that I got to spend a week with the fabulous
Well ok, with the Covid quarantine, I didn't really spend a week "with"
her per say...but I did spend a week with her book.
That counts doesn't it?
A "Lone Star" quilt has been on my to-do list for a very long time.
I must admit, I was a little scared to tackle it,
but what better time, being stuck at home and all.
"Sew" I pieced and I pieced...
...and I trimmed and I trimmed...
...til I had piles and piles of star points!

...that were stitching into 8 blades of 25 star points each.
I'm not sure just why Lone Star quilts terrified me so much???
It may have been the fact that they were basically paper pieced,
but stitching them together was way easier than I thought it would be.
This is my "Covid Craziness" versions of Bonnie Hunters
"Santa Fe String" Quilt.
It's wild and crazy, much like...
well, you know who!
This guy is a biggie...
it measures 76"x 76"
If you've got scraps this is a great way to use them.
It takes a "LOT" but for some reason, my scraps drawers are still full!
Just how does this happen?

Yikes, that's an image even I don't want to see.
Maybe I'll just sit and admire the newly planted toilet planters!
A big thanks to Carol at "Just Let Me Quilt" for your valiant attempt
in helping me with my scrap problem!
It just might just take another few blog hops though, it seams!
We have lots of wonderful bloggers participating in the hop this week.
Make sure you visit them all.
You can find the full schedule
til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
