Another way is to have all 8 of the triangles that make a star block of the same 2 fabrics. This is the first Hunter Star quilt top that I made in 2015.
The third way was the layout of my most recent Hunter Star quilt top. In this one the quarter square blocks are 2 triangles from the same fabric combination sewn together and placed diagonally across from each other and a second combination is in the other 2 corners. In this quilt each fabric pair is in 2 blocks rather than all in the same block as in the photo above. That makes this one look a little more scrappy but not as random as the first photo.
You can see that a little more clearly in the shot of one block.
I hope this gives you more ideas for playing with the blocks if you make a Hunter Star quilt.
I'm going to add this notice to the bottom of every post for a few days. I realize that cellphone readers don't see my sidebar unless they click on "view web version" so they would miss the opportunity to sign up.
Take a look at the new sign up form on the right side bar of my blog (or click on the link). I'll be opening a new online store soon and will be offering quilts, quilt tops, fabric kits and more. I'd love for you to be first in line when the store opens.
