This project was an adventure. The order was for a king sized duvet cover. The color palette was to be in golds and browns to pull in some interesting wall art in those colors from the clients bedroom. Having never done a lone star, I designed the cover around that design using the fall colors in batik fabrics.
I think the photos really speak for themselves, but I thank Donna at Jorden Fabrics in Grants Pass, Oregon, for the amazing YouTube of how to put a lone star together.
Auditioning the strips
After auditioning some different batiks for the backgrounds for the star we selled on a golden brown batick with flecks of cream.
For the drop we settled on the rich, dark brown batik with Kokopelli and lizards as the fabric of choice. April at Creekside Quilts Oregon was very helpful in finding the right design.
Then with the bits and scraps from the Duvet Cover. I went on to make a fun wonky star twin quilt. It sits on the guest room bed.
