Souix Star

bcskyeDecember 29, 2013

Hi, everyone! I'm new to this forum. I usually hang out in the Harvest, Cooking and several forums devoted to veggie gardening. However, I am looking for a pattern for the Sioux Star quilt for a friend and myself and hoped someone on here could help me. TIA for any responses from you.

If you are talking of what I think you are, then Sharon's link should help. I am linking to a more informal site, with more informal intructions for making the Sioux stars, in general. If you have a quilting background, you should be able to take it and run with it, if you don't I think it's still easy enough to guide you. http://starquilts.com/starborn.htm I don't know why, but the window would not let me link to it

Looks like Sioux star is another name for the Lone Star pattern. I was familiar with the Sioux tradition, but not the lone star pattern. IOW if you can make a bargello, you can make a Lone star. Here's a video you might enjoy. I am cranked.......I could DO THIS!

I'm sorry, this is the link I meant to post. I am still drinking my morning cafeine and not awake yet. It's one of our fav quilters in a video.

Thanks geezerfolks and calliope for the websites you posted. Both will be a great help in creating the Sioux Star Quilt.
