This Old Quilt


Remember this design? It's the Lone Star which is usually made from single 45 degree diamond shape. Later methods call for strip piecing which these Lone Stars were made.
The New Lone Star Quilt Handbook by Blanche Young & Helen Young Frost, published by C&T Publishing in Lafayette, California is the book that I used. It's an old one but can be found on eBay or other methods.
