Lone Star Mini Quilt

My love affair with Lone Star quilts is not over yet - after making the red and white Lone Star and Starimekko last year, I decided to try a Lone Star Mini Quilt. I used strips that were 1 inch wide (!) to strip-piece the eight points of the star. The finished quilt measures 8 inch / 20cm square. To give you a sense of scale I have made a photo of the quilt with my fabric scissors:

The quilt is made up of fabric scraps (the binding fabric and the black and white fabric are leftovers from the Rainbow Floor Cushion) and I used Aurifil threads for piecing and quilting. It's hanging in my sewing room now and I love looking at it!
