Lone Star day - whoops...

When I got up this morning, there was an email waiting for me from Jayne, my co-host of the Lone Star days.  Jayne is obviously far more efficient than me, as she had remembered something that I had completely forgotten.  Today is Lone Star day.

Now for my other confession.  I have done nothing to my quilt this month.  Actually, that's not quite true.  I have spent some time on the computer deciding on a pieced border, which is what will come next.

Only trouble is, I like them both, and don't know which one to choose.

My final confession for the day is that I will not be doing anything on the quilt today.  I'll try and post something relevant a bit later though.


  1. They say confession is good for the soul. Do you feel better now? If it's up for a vote, I vote for the border on the left. I think it complements the star, while the other border draws myeye away from the star to follow the pattern, like a maze.

  2. Looks a nice one hard but nice
    Hugs Janice

  3. Although I like both borders I think they take away from the main attraction. The star is truly the "star" of the quilt so I would do solid borders and let the center shine.

  4. I love them both. I have never used a computer program to help design a quilt but I think it sure helps in deciding what to do without cutting fabric and trying something without seeing the outcome first.

  5. I'm leaning to the one on the left since the pieced blocks look like mini stars which then carry the Lone Star motif.

    Sue at least you thought about your Lone Star project. I won't be participating this month since I'm working on a quilted wall hanging that I need to get finished for the weekend of Aug 18th. Then I have another project for a retirement present in Sept. I think my Lone Star project will come back up for the fall.

  6. I think the one on the left seems to stay with the same style.. while the one on the right seems to swerve away..

  7. I like the "ball change" look of the one on the right. :-) Glad you joined us.

  8. I;m with Jacqueline - The Lone Star quilt is the 'shine' of the star, not the border. Traditionally - usually none, but a single 1.5"-2" is seen on some of the 1860-1900.

  9. Hello Sue, I was delighted with his words thank you for your visit, I'm following you. Beautiful things here, good work , congratulations
    Did you see my other blog : just for cats friends?? Send me a photo of your beautiful cat that I put there.
    Good Wednesday

  10. I can't wait to see how this journey progresses! I love Lone Star quilts... I know yours is going to be fantastic.
