Cabbage and Roses Lone Star

This has been one of my favorite quilts ever ever. The collection was chocolat by 3 sisters.
Yummy, rich fabrics that were good enough to eat. Get it the name of the group-Chocolat
The quilt pattern was named, Truffles.
Debbi Duckworth made the quilt and no picture can do it justice. 


I got to thinking
about this quilt
 and this fabric.




This line has yummy linen/cotton solids in it. I wish blogs would let you touch the fabric but until then you will just have to believe me.So I set forth to use the denim linen as my background. I love how it turned out!
Did I tell you that I don't do the "A" word? Applique.

So here is my version of the quilt above.




I have included a link to the chocolat pattern if you want to give this project a try.
Northcote Range by Cabbages and Roses will be in stores September.

  3. OH! Gorgeous!!! I have loved the 'Lone Star' since I looked at my very first quilt book 3 years ago. I haven't worked up the courage to try one yet, but some day...definitely someday. I love the Northcott fabrics you used Lissa.

  6. Love this fabric line! I have a question for you about writing up a tutorial on my blog for this free Moda pattern http://www.unitednotions.com/my-pattern_cabbages-roses.pdf . I just posted about making one today and there seems to be quite a bit of interest from my readers in me writing up a "how to" post for this pattern. Is it ok for me to do so? I'll be using Moda fabrics, of course. :) Let me know. Thanks!
