Flowering Lone Star – ALYoF March Reveal

Flowering Lone Star Front - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comHere is my March finish for A Lovely Year of Finishes!

I have to say that I am so proud of this quilt! I haven’t been able to find another lone star quilt like this on Pinterest so I have named it “Flowering Lone Star” and I will be making a pattern for it!

I did some free motion quilting in the center “flower” of the star. A different design in light blues from the dark blues. Straight line quilting around the outer star and more straight line quilting in the background.

Close Up Flowering Lone Star - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comOn the back I made a small lone star block with my leftover diamonds from the outer star on the front.

Back lone star - Flowering Lone Star - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comI really do love the back of this quilt. I hope the recipient likes it too!

Back - Flowering Lone Star Quilt - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comI am going to make a second one of these quilts in more modern fabrics and use that to write the pattern.  I am so excited!

If you finished your March goal, go link up here and if not yet you have until March 31st so get busy!

This was one of my goals for the Finish-A-Long Q1 with Katy from The Littlest Thistle. You can see my goals here.
