When You Wish Upon a Lone Star

Sewing as fast as I can to get you some 
good instructions on the Lone Star quilt. 

I'm working on a name for our little sew-along. 

While researching, I was blown away by all the famous people who have talked about Lone Stars through the years........

Lone Star, Lone Star 
wherefore art thou Lone Star? 

You may say I'm a Lone Star, 
but I'm not the only one. 
John Lennon

Ask not what a Lone Star can do for you, 
but what YOU can do for a Lone Star

Hitch your wagon to a Lone Star

I haven't failed.  
I've just found 1000 ways to make a Lone Star. 
Thomas Edison

Star...Lone Star.
James Bond

Life is like a Lone Star.  
You never know what you're going to get.

Frankly, my dear, I don't give a Lone Star

 Maybe I should get back to sewing.
