Several months ago....I do mean several
I came upon the idea of reinventing the Hunters Star using the Accuquilt Go die. I love seeing how I can make something different from these dies, it gives a person several ways to use one die. By the way Accuquilt has nothing to do with this post, it is my own post. If you have been a follower for a while, I have many project using the Accquilt dies in different ways than intended.
Here is the quilt....a horrible picture I might add.... I have been taking pictures of this quilt for months and get the same results.
Here is the picture today...much better
Here it is up close
Here it is closer...see those beautiful fabrics??? Feline Fine by Jackie Kunkle, Island Batik
Here is a blue and white version. I just love this. Making this one into a table topper. Island Batiks fabrics.
What you need to make just this one block is one strip of the blue and one strip of the white 4 1/2" the length of the fabric.
Fold each fabric to where you get four layers. From the four layers you will make two cuts giving you eight sections each of the Hunters Star die.
So you would have eight of each of these sections.
Here is the beginnings of the hunters star. You put two blue halves together and two white halves together.
You will need eight of these.
Sew the white to the blue. Do this eight times.
Sew the segments together as shown above with the white square opposite the white square, you are just flip flopping the segments.
Now you have four squares, hopefully, they look like the one above.
Place the remaining 4 squares together with the white going inward with the blue making the star.
Don't you just love it? This is 24 1/2" square
Here is my table topper with a 1 1/2" border
I have this little topper in a hoop, I plan to hand quilt it...hummmm maybe???
