Lone Star explosion!

I've been super busy making Lone Star models for a class I'm teaching in a few weeks at a quilting retreat.
I can hardly wait to get there!
It's in beautiful McCall, ID.
My friends at Craft Taffy are hosting it.
I can't even begin to tell you how much fun it will be!
There is always lots of laughter, surprises, goodies, fabulous food and meeting new friends.
What could be more fun?
It's September 20th - 23rd.
Here are a couple of samples I've made for the class:
I made this one from my stash - 11 different prints.
It measures about 70" square.
The backing is a piece I've had for a long time - I'm happy to finally find a home for it.
I made this one from a Kona solid jelly roll.
This beauty belongs to Corrie - of Quilt Taffy - she's hosting this retreat.
She will have kits available if you want to make one like hers.
She chose this adorable orange flannel for the backing.
These two quilts are friends now. 
They're packed & ready to head to the retreat!
You could make a new friend at the retreat, too!
My chestnut neighbors wanted to help with the photography.
(sorry about the haziness - it's super smoky outside here in Montana with all the wild fires surrounding us....)
Aw - she wants to come to the retreat, too.
There are still a couple of openings for the first session  - Sept. 20th - 23rd.
Contact Corrie here if you want to snag one of those spots!
I would LOVE to see you there!


  1. Wow - those are both so great. I love the grey background for the jelly roll one - very pretty. Hope the smoke moves out ... we haven;t see our mountains in days. Poor people close to it.

  2. Oooh wish I could go...those are beautiful!

    1. Thanks, my friend, I wish you could go, too! But - I wish I could go on your cruise next year! hugs & love.....

  3. Oooh wish I could go...those are beautiful!

  4. Since I can't make it to the Quilt Taffy retreat, maybe I'll block off those dates and work on mine right along with you! LOVE the pictures!!

    1. Sounds like a great plan! Wish you could be there - another time!

  5. So pretty. I would love to go to the retreat. It sounds like so much fun!

    1. Thank you, my friend - the retreat would be SO fun together! one day.....

  6. These are beautiful Kathy! Wish I could go to the retreat. Do you sell the pattern? :)
