I am lucky again to be doing a quilt along with the Fat Quarter Shop! The project this time is a new version of the Hunter Star quilt, in the Serie of Classic and Vintage Patterns. Fat Quarter Shop has simplified the pattern. It is so easy to do and beautiful. I made a small quilt for now, but I think that I will add to it to make it bigger… Here is my quilt top:

Hunter Star Quilt (FQS Quiltalong)

The fabrics I used are from my stash – and because they are fat quarters without any info on them, I can’t even tell you the manufacturer… but they are pretty!

Fabrics for Hunter Star Quilt Along with FQS

The block is made in 2 parts, then each part is trimmed to a triangular shape…

Corners of block – Hunter Star Quilt

Trim the wings of each corners off:

Then the 2 triangles are joined together to form a square….

This is the block when the 2 corners are joined together.  

In the next step, 2 new corners are made by adding a square to each corner.  Sorry I don’t have a photo of that step. In the next step, the final square obtained is trimmed down to a 9 ½” square. Don’t forget that step!  I did for one of my blocks in the my quilt in the first picture.  Just realized now looking at the photo… (That’s why I had so much trouble matching my points for that corner…. 🙂

In the next step, we get to join 4 blocks together to form a Hunter Star, then join the 4×4 blocks to make the quilt…  )

6 blocks together!
