New Lone Star

I just realized recently that I have been working on a series for years, a series I did not even know I had started. It is something I have had in mind for decades and it seems to circle around and whack me in the head every once in a while. After I took this Lone Star out of the frame last week, I realized I was building up a group of quilts based on the idea that I could take the name of a traditional quilt pattern and come up with my own image for it. Years ago I made this Grandmother's Flower garden:

All its flowers are in the quilting. Just last fall I finished this New York Beauty:

And a couple of days ago I got this Job's Tears off my design wall and onto the Handi Quilter frame for quilting. 

I have some ideas about the next few in the series. But now I have to quilt this new one. I better get to work.
