This Lone Star Quilt hangs in the front foyer of our home. This is another one of my vintage quilts that was made by a family member from a past generation.
Other names for this quilt include Star of Bethlehem, Morning Star and Lone Star. Lone Star Quilts are made with a magnificent mosaic of little diamonds radiating out from the center of the star.
This particular Lone Star Quilt is interesting as it has
added radiating points off from each of the main points.The making of this quilt was not for the faint of heart. Long hours of cutting, deciding on placement of each diamond and piecing was required. Careful, accurate work had to be done to make sure the stitching was accurate to get all the points to line up correctly.
I just can't even imagine the hours that were spent
hand quilting this gorgeous piece of art!
