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:
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!
The block is made in 2 parts, then each part is trimmed to a triangular shape…
Trim the wings of each corners off:
Then the 2 triangles are joined together to form a square….
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… )
The Fat quarter Shop has a video on their blog for the whole project. See all the details here: https://blog.fatquartershop.com/2018/02/classic-vintage-hunter-star.html?crl8_id=e0634d3c-1c6e-472c-b614-8ed69e686438
