Glowing Lone Star #2 + TGIFF

Friday, July 5, 2019

I'm so excited to be able to share my second Glowing Lone Star quilt with you!


Glowing Lone Star quilt for Bluprint

The first one was made with blues and greens and is available on Bluprint as a kit here.

This quilt is exactly the same design, except it has completely different fabric colors! (The kit is available on Bluprint here.) I absolutely love seeing the same quilt made out of different fabrics!! This one is so striking in both the warm and cool colorways!

Strip piecing makes this quilt quick to put together.

This is one of those quilts that looks WAY more complicated than it is!

If you remember from my post about the first quilt, it was the primary reason I decided to buy a longarm!

When it came time to quilt this one, I knew exactly how I wanted to quilt it!


Aurifil thread for my Glowing Lone Star Quilt

I loaded the quilt on my longarm (a 1989 Gammill) with Warm & Natural batting and chose four coordinating 50wt Aurifil threads: #2783 Medium Delft Blue, #1154 Dusty Orange, #2455 Medium Carmine Red, and #1240 Very Dark Eggplant.

I used the Eggplant to quilt swirls in the background, and I used the Carmine Red to quilt figure eights in the sashing.

I used Dorie Hruska's One Start One Stop method to quilt the center star using the Blue and Orange threads.

I really enjoyed quilting this one!

There were several months (and many quilts!) in-between the first and second Glowing Lone Star quilts, so I felt much more confident in my machine and my quilting abilities too.

Bluprint took some really great photos of the quilt!

  3. Both of your star quilts are beautiful! I also love how you used your longarm frame to organize your strips... :-). Do you know whether this type of star is considered a Star of Bethlehem or a Lone Star, or are those names interchangeable? I've always been smitten by these giant star quilts, since I first saw them in quilting magazines when I was still struggling to sew two strips together straight. Would love to make one someday!

  5. Wow! That star positively glows! I think it is the gradual variation of the centre that does this!
