More Layouts

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to share with you a few more examples of the Hunter's Star. These are some photos that I took while at class at QBTY.


This first photo is a 3 color or 3 fabric version of a Hunter's Star. Laura (our teacher) made this table runner to demonstrate using the 3 colors for this pattern. It looks much different than a 2 color or 2 fabric version. Just lovely!


Here is my friend Maria modeling one of her completed blocks. She chose to make a 2 fabric version. If you click on the picture to enlarge you will see that the fabrics she chose are tone on tone. She is making a lap size version for her son in law to be! Lucky guy!


Yet another 2 color version from another student in the class. Beautiful in blue and white.


So Maria worked hard in class and was able to get all these blocks completed and up on the wall. Doesn't it look fantastic! I am telling you this ruler is the best!


Here is another student's red and white version. Just gorgeous! So I know that you all would like the link again for the ruler. Just click here to go to the site for the Petite Rapid Fire Hunter's Star ruler. Don't forget to look at Deb Tucker's gallery while you are there.

Also, don't forget to check out the NEW Kaffe, Philip, Brandon, and Martha fabrics that I just added to my online shop. I know you will just love them!

Until Next Time...

I always enjoy seeing blocks or projects made up in different colors. They seem to have a whole new look about them. Thanks for sharing.

Those blocks look amazing, and the quilt store is HUGE!

Wow, all are wonderful.Blocks in two colors are awesome and also in three.

A question about the ruler: Are the instructions clear enough that a person can figure it out without having taken the class? I bought the Square in a Square ruler one time and can't figure it out at all nor can the quilt shop where I got it, so I am stuck with that and not able to use is. I vowed not to let that happen again with any other tool I purchased! These blocks surely look great!!!

Heather said...

what a wonderful looking block. I really like it in the two colours when there is a big contrast.

Anina said...

These are stunning! Maybe I need another project...

My Mom made (or should I say, started) the Hunter's Star, w/o the ruler but was put off by all the pieces involved...that was enough to stop me though I love that pattern...I will definitely be investing in a ruler! I'd also love to take her Carolina Lily class

Barb said...

That works up to be an amazing block, runner and quilt....thanks for showing but look right out of my league.

Jean said...

This is very pretty. I haven't tried this block, but if you can strip piece it, that sounds great!

Annemariesquilt said...

I love your new prosjekt and I would love to have the pattern and the ruler ....
The tabelrunner is stunning. I always love to make another tabelrunner and they are great for gifts!

Rae Ann said...

The tablerunner and blocks are gorgeous...everyone of them. I know I am going to have to buy that ruler and make some for myself. Thanks Jackie!

Wonderful pattern and lovely table runner!
I'm not good in 'reading' pattern so I always admire people who works on it.

Nedra said...

All turned out wonderful, but Maria's is my favorite. Soemthing about Red and White as a two color quilt just call to me.

It has been fun seeing all the different variations and colors in the block. I love working with pieces and color and trying them in different ways.

I've never met a Hunter's Star I didn't like, and these are no exception. They're all lovely.

Kathy said...

Gorgeous!!!!!

Thimbleanna said...

Wow -- that three color version does make a difference, doesn't it? I LOVE the two color versions -- VERY pretty!

Kim Walus said...

The quilt pattern is really great and I loved both versions. I love scrappy quilts so I'd have to try out the 3 color version first. It's so hard to pick though because I love both.

Cathi said...

Gorgeous! I love the three-colour version and all the two-colour ones! I think this is a pattern I have to make!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

I really enjoy seeing an idea put to cloth in different colors.

pratima said...

These remind me of tile flooring in very old buildings. They are all very pretty!

Selvage Quilter said...

The Hunter's Star is beautiful. I really like the 2 color version. Amazing!
