Lone Star Style

In this throw the orange and red prints in the Lone Star draw attention while the blue tone-on-tone background recedes, resulting in a quilt center that makes the eye dance. Fabrics are from the Autumn Harvest collection by Jason Yenter for In The Beginning Fabrics.

To use freezer paper for cutting appliqué pieces, complete the following steps.

1. Lay freezer paper, shiny side down, over Arc Pattern. Use a pencil to trace the pattern four times. Cut out freezer-paper shapes on drawn lines.

2. Using a hot dry iron, press freezer-paper shapes, shiny sides down, onto wrong side of orange fan print, leaving at least 1⁄2" between shapes; let cool.

3. Cut out each appliqué shape, adding a 1⁄4" seam allowance to curved edge only. Clip curves.

4. On curved edge of each appliqué shape, run glue along wrong side of seam allowance. Fold seam allowance to back of freezer paper and finger-press; let dry.
