#nonquiltcon

I cant resist a challenge but did not have a lot of time this week to sew another project. I had the idea of a star in the back of my mind. I kept seeing a star for Texas the Lonestar state showing up in Quiltcon posts. I pulled out my scraps bins and fished out large scale florals in greens and blues and yellows, mostly roses. I decided to paper piece a freehand drawn star red. Then pieced randomly. then I printed an outline of Texas, pinned it to the basted layers and quilted it. Last I did straight line quilting to frame out the Texas. It now covers my winter pillows so I can use them year round on my sofa. The title is the hashtag I used the past 5 days becasue I did ot go to Quiltcon.
