Lone Star Quilt

It has taken me several days to finish quilting this Lone Star (and only a year to get it on the quilting frame).  I did steaming cups of coffee in the corners and the solid squares.



and as you can see, curls and cc in the Lone Star.  Arabica bean plants with the “cherries.”  I learned that each “cherry” contains 2 coffee beans.  Who knew?


Since I used matching thread in the gold border, it was difficult to get a picture of the quilting.  I quilted hooked feathers with occassional loops (to tie it in with the loops in the steam of the coffee cups).  They were really easy and fast.


The dark brown border in the picture above has double piano keys with curls inbetween.  It is really hard to see.  But I experimented and found a really easy way to incorporate straight lines and solve a problem I sometimes have with piano keys.  When I take the quilt off the frame, I’ll take picture of the back and explain what I’m talking about.

Hang in there Brian.  It’s almost done!!!!

Thanks for visiting with me.  I am very grateful you stopped by.

  1. Mostly true on the 2 beans per cherry. You can have peaberries which occur in about 5% of the cherries. A peaberry is one bean as the 2nd one is not fertilized. Some claim that peaberry coffee is better tasting for a number of reasons.

    Looks great mom! Thanks so much!
