All-Star Quilts: 10 Strip-Pieced Lone Star Sparklers
Based on the 8-pointed LeMoyne star, these quilt projects use the tried-and-true strip-piecing method that Blanche originally developed in 1979. Blanche and her daughter Helen have been exploring this historical star ever since, playing with different configurations and sizes, to captivate generations of quilters to come.
