New project............



My new project is Hunter Star.  I have the die to cut the pieces and had only made a sample block up to this point.  Turquoise has never been a favorite color and I'm beginning to enjoy it so I'm using my turquoise batiks in this quilt.



I sewed a bunch more quarter blocks last night while watching Netflix.  I'll get them pressed and assembled into blocks today.  I think this will be a small quilt, probably 20 blocks.



Here is my late bloomer.  I bought this bulb at the same time as the one that bloomed in December and planted them at the same time. I had just about given up on this one and then 2 flower stalks started growing.  I have buds forming on my orange cactus.  The cacti aren't blooming as much as last year  I have just one or 2 buds on a couple red ones.

I'm starting to get some new buds on my Christmas cactus. The Hunter Star is a neat looking block. It has crisp angles. Chris

The Hunter Stars are beautiful! I have always wanted to make Hunter Star quilt - I'll have think about buying the Accuquilt die. I've seen it paper pieced and loved how it looks, but I'm not much for paper piecing.

Turquoise is one of my favorite colors, so I know I will love this one.

That is going to be a beautiful quilt!

love the Hunter Star - I have never made it and I'm not sure why - I guess i just always have too many going and then forget about blocks that I said I wanted to make. I have an Amaryllis that I bought for a dollar after Xmas, the bud is on it now and should be blooming in another week or so I bet

I have always liked that block but haven't yet made one for myself. Need to!put that on the list for some day.

I've liked the Hunter Star too, but time is the enemy, so I will enjoy making it vicariously! :-)

Someone was blogging an AccuQuilt Hunter Star tut. Was supposed to start mid January. Any ideas who? I bought the die to be ready, but now can't find anything.

Very pretty, Wanda!

Hunter Star is mesmerizing, keeps drawing me in. I like the design and as usual fabrics are so pretty. Will be looking forward to seeing all 20 blocks.

Your later bloomer sure put on a show for you. It is just beautiful.

Turquoise has recently become a favorite of mine and I have always loved the Hunters Star. It's a win/win in my book.

It may be a late bloomer, but it's spectacular.

Beautiful Hunter Star and the Amaryllis is a wonderful colour.

Hunter Star is looking fabulous !

Sandra said...

Wanda, the Hunter Star is beautiful and exuberantly colorful! Most Hunter Star quilts I have seen are just two colors, a solid and white. Your way is so much more interesting!

I am a new quilter. Your sewing room is wonderful. I love your furniture. The hunter star is on my list to paper piece. I am getting an Accuquilt in Paducah this April at the show. A beautiful Amaryllis. Question; is Stratas the name of the TAW quilt? Barara
