Lonestar Day August!

Happy Lonestar Quilting Day! 

Queen Lone Star Top with DD
I am happy to say that my Lonestar Quilt Top is all together as one nice giant square.   It is a queen at this point though I do not have exact measurements yet, as I'm not quite certain how to square it in my tiny house...  I added the background pieces a week or so ago. 

In one amazingly peaceful morning with my sister I sat down with a some of Bonefish's Press Pot Coffee and came up with these rather extensive quilting plans.  With only a midarm I knew I needed a section by section plan.  I was also concerned that without a detailed images at the very least in my minds eye, I would inadvertently change quilting designs going instead for those that are more comfortable as I moved through the quilt, thereby loosing continuity. 
Quilting Notes for Lone Star
On the blog front things have been very quiet and I have missed stopping by and seeing how everyone is doing, but never fear we have just been enjoying the last strains of summer with DD which I will share with you later.  Have a nice evening.

What a beautiful quilt! I absolutely love the color combination. It is stunning. I love your doodles, too. How neat to have your thought process on paper!

That looks great. I love your quilting doodles too. I guess that the next stage is to get it on the frame and then just go for it?

Wow, having DD in the picture really puts the size of that quilt in perspective, it's huge and gorgeous!

Amazing and your choice of border fabric just complements the look of the Lone Star. Good luck squaring the quilt.
