The Holiday Star that was almost a Lone Star, but back to a Holiday Star.

The pattern is called The Holiday Star by Carol Doak . I was just scrolling through some patterns and thought I just had to try it out. I have been working on it for several months now.

It’s one of the patterns that looked at for a while, but never really committed. Plus I really wanted to try and make it into a lone star quilt, and I have always struggled with that pattern.

I have made several lone stars over the years, but the only successful ones have been paper pieced and English paper piecing. Lone Stars are by far my all time favorite quilts, but also the most stressful. I always forget just to enjoy the process. As usual my expectations completely exceeded my skills.
