I made a Lone Star quilt ONCE back in 1982. I took a class back then from the wonderful Blanche Young -- she was a great teacher and a pioneer in strip piecing techniques. Unfortunately, my quilt did not measure up to her beautiful class samples. My piecing was OK; but, oh! my fabric choices were so bad.

When my grandmother saw this quilt, she said, "That's the ugliest quilt I've ever seen." She was never at a loss for words! I have to agree with her sentiment.
This is not a very good photo. The quilt is still around here somewhere hidden in my stacks. So I could dig it out and take a better photo, but I don't think it is worth the effort. Let sleeping dogs lie.
