Lone Star Quilt (with video tutorial)


So this year, I’ve dubbed the year of the quilt, which means I’m going to be making a whole bunch. Yaaaaaaay for quilts!!!!! And this Lone Star quilt was a result of two partnerships: Electric Quilt and my new LQS My Quilting Loft.

First up, Electric Quilt. If you don’t know about this program, it’s actually pretty neato. I’ve had it for a hot minute and never really played with it until they reached out asking if I’d help them with a three month promo thingy. They gave me a coupon code (EQ8MATHEW) for y’all for 3 months if you wanna get it and I’m pretty confident y’all know I wouldn’t even mention it unless I really dug the program. See… Look what I made…

Like my ability to import swatches from my fabrics and play around with them in the program was super neato mosquito and I never would’ve thought to make this had I not had the program. The 11 fabrics in this quilt design are the fabrics that My Quilting Loft ordered from my first two collections, so I thought it was be swell to make for them to have in their shop. Here I am holding the quilt top being a goober in my trunk show from this past weekend.

And of course after I made this, I had to totally create a video tutorial and a pattern. Click on the images below to get to each.

And then here are a couple photos of the quilt top so you can post them on Pinterest and make me Pinterest-famous. That’s how it works right?

I hope y’all enjoy making your own Lone Star Quilt. Keep it positive y’all!

    Thank you! I LOVE your video tutorial on this one and have shown it to all my quilty friends, even my Grandma loved it! I want to make this for our bedspread and add sashing and a border. Your tutorial makes it seem within reach! I love how you break things down so they are manageable and easy without becoming dull and cumbersome. It is a gift.

    Thank you for the free pattern.

    How long are the actual strips? Are they the width or the length of the fat quarter?
    Can’t wait to start on this!


    Just looked at your video and did not see the pattern.

    Mercy, I wish I had seen your tutorial first! I’m in the middle of trying to salvage the Lone star mess I’ve made based on a poorly written pattern I purchased! I can’t go back, but some of your tips will definitely help me move forward! Thank you!
