This month the Island Batik Ambassadors were challenged to make a Lone Star quilt. I remember making a miniature Lone Star quilt when I was in middle school (I had no idea they were hard LOL), but I've never made a big one.
The first thing I did was head over to Accuquilt's website to see what dies they had I could use to make a Lone Star. I chose the Carpenter's Wheel die as the diamond was larger than the Prairie Star die which finish at just 1 inch.
I then started to think about what I could put in the corners that would be interesting and different. I looked at a bunch of pictures online and I love the ones with complicated applique, but I didn't want to do a bunch of applique. Then I started looking at other Accuquilt Block on Board dies and came upon the Pickle Dish Die which is one of my favorites. It makes the quilt look like it has a circle around it!
