The Lone Star quilt pattern is rumored to have emerged just before the fall of the Alamo in 1836, and became an important symbol of the state. It is likely one of the most recognizable quilt patterns in the America’s. The design is also known by many other names, but Texans call it the Lone Star quilt after their state nickname. The star has traditionally been made with muted colors that symbolize the southwest, but has been shown in bright or dark colors as well. Many Texans proudly display their Texas Star quilts that have been passed down through family history.
