Lone Star Quilts

fw4

I have two Lone Star quilts to share with you today and they were made by  Florence who will be giving them to her granddaughters for their graduation this June.    The first one is made in pinks and greys and the inner grey border has a very pretty feather print.  Lots of flowing feathers and CC’s in the diamond shapes to give it wonderful texture.

The second one is made in bolder colour palette of blue, green and purple fabrics and quilted very similar to the first one.

  1. Both are stunning and your photo setting is so perfect (although I'm so ready to see green rather than white fluffy(?) cold stuff!!!!!).........

  2. It's really gorgeous. I do really like your feathers...nice and plump. Some I've seen are a little too skinny for me.

  4. The Lone Stars have turned out wonderfully. I believe I have a bit of insight into the personalities of these two young ladies based on the colour palettes! Now the long wait until graduation. Great job, Florence and Kathy.

  7. Photographing these beautiful quilts on the pristine white snow of northern Manitoba makes for a very effective backdrop. Great way to show off the stunning colours and beautiful quilting.
