I am fairly new to quilting and have used the QuiltSmart method to make the 58" Lone Star quilt top. I have the kit part finished, and want the finished quilt to be a "super" queen size for my son and his fiance. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas how to finish the quilt. I don't want to take away from the star, but feel that the area on the pillow foldover may look awfully blank if the star is on the body of the bed. Any ideas? Thank you for any input. I have been a subscriber for over a year and just logged in last night and am enjoying this so much.
I have seen the lone star finished with friendship stars for the border that are very pretty.
judi, there are so many things you could do. just leave it like it is, and add some matching pillow shams. do a row of small stars. do a row of triangles on point that match your star, applique a spray of flowers that match the colors. i can picture so many things that would look good. hope this helps. gini

Thank you for your input. I am not sure that I know what friendship stars are though.
Thank you Gini for your input. I think I like the idea of triangles on point, but may now have enough material left over to accomplish that. I do plan to make another of the Lone Stars so I will keep that in mind.
