I’ve always admired the Lone Star quilt (also known as Radiant Star, Star of Bethlehem and Texas Star) but it looked really difficult to do.  I ordered the Quilt in a Day book for Radiant Star by Eleanor Burns, hoping her very good instructions would carry me through.  I’m afraid even Eleanor Burns can’t make this a fool-proof quilt to sew. 

I did complete the quilt in the full size and it’s being used on one of my beds, but it’s not as good as I had hoped.  Some day, after some more experience, I’m going to try it again.
