Lonestar Eagle Quilts with Pattern

This quilt design was taught to me by my grandmother and we worked on this quilt together over a period of three years because it kept having to be put on hold when I had to go back to grad school. But it is finally finished and I gave it to my brother as his Christmas present last year.

This is my quilt top but I still haven't managed to get around to actually putting the front together with the back and the batting (laziness). Sadly the edges puckered allot more than my brothers quilt that I made but since this one is mine I guess I can live with it if I ever bother to finish it.

The quilt is based off of a standard Lonestar quilt pattern with varying color placements to form the eagles. The pattern was drafted by my grandmother. She saw a picture of a similar quilt in a magazine at the hospital the day we found out my grandfather was dying and this pattern has had allot of significance to us ever since. My grandmother spent allot of time figuring out the pattern pieces afterwards and I then made her sketch into a computer diagram which is available below so that anyone else who is interested in this beautiful quilt pattern doesnt have to go through all the trouble trying to figure out the placement of colors.

I have a nice PDF of the quilt pattern so if you are interested its available on Deviant art at the link listed below


Hope you enjoy!

Your quilt is beatiful and so is your story! I wish soo much that I had've done things like this with my grandmother. You're very generous for sharing all your grandmothers and your hard work. Thank you! You've done a wonderful job on both quilts!

Very cool.  I love how it is just an alteration of a lone star - such cool things you can do with that!

beautiful!  I love the colors in the brown one, the same pattern in two different color schemes really changes the feeling. 
thanks for sharing the pattern  Grin
