Americana Lone Star

The Antique Americana collection from RJR Fabrics steals the show in this Lone Star wall hanging. A two-color collage of vintage postcards provides an unexpected background in the LeMoyne Star blocks and setting units. Abrupt changes from light prints to dark prints make this small Lone Star radiate. A trio of borders visually contains the star.

Assemble Quilt Center

1. Stitching from dot to dot, sew together two diamond points to make an angled unit. Press seam open. Set a LeMoyne Star setting unit into angled unit to make a diamond pair; the setting unit will extend slightly beyond edges. Repeat to make four diamond pairs total.
2. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out diamond pairs and LeMoyne Star blocks. Join diamond pairs into star halves and set in LeMoyne Star blocks;
press seams toward LeMoyne Star blocks.

3. Sew together star halves and set in LeMoyne Star blocks to make quilt center; press seams toward LeMoyne Star blocks. If necessary, trim quilt center to 34-1/2" square including seam allowances. (The Lone Star might "float" slightly within the quilt center.)
