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.

Assemble Star Points

1. Using an acrylic ruler, cut one end of each green print 3×42" strip at a 45° angle (Diagram 1). Measuring parallel to trimmed edges, cut trimmed strips into thirty-two 3"-wide diamonds. If desired, mark a dot on each corner of diamond where 1⁄4" seam allowances intersect.

2. Using orange fan print 3×42" strips, gold print 3×42" strip, and orange print 3×42" strip, repeat Step 1 to make:
16 orange fan print 3"-wide diamonds
8 gold print 3"-wide diamonds
8 orange print 3"-wide diamonds

3. Trim each blue print 5-1⁄2×42" strip at a 45° angle as done in Step 1. Measuring 5-1⁄2" from trimmed edges, cut 16 blue print 5-1⁄2"-wide diamonds (Diagram 2).

4. Referring to Diagram 3, sew together two green print 3"-wide diamonds, one orange fan print 3"-wide diamond, and one gold print 3"-wide diamond in pairs. Press seams away from green print diamonds. Join pairs to make Diamond Unit A. Press seam in one direction. Repeat to make eight A diamond units total.

5. Using two green print 3"-wide diamonds, one orange fan print 3"-wide diamond, and one orange print 3"-wide diamond, repeat Step 4 to make eight B diamond units (Diagram 4).

6. Referring to Diagram 5, sew together two blue print 5-1⁄2"-wide diamonds, one Diamond Unit A, and one Diamond Unit B in pairs. Press seams toward blue print diamonds. Join pairs to make a star point. Press seam in one direction. Repeat to make eight star points total.
