Blocks, strata.............

I have 14 Hunter Star blocks sewn and fabrics chosen for 6 more.

I also inventoried all of my quilt tops waiting in line for quilting.  I needed to measure some and staple a little note with the size written on it on the corner of the quilt top.  That saves a lot of time when I'm ready to look for backing and batting pieces.






I sewed two more stratas for this TAW quilt and then decided what my center is so I can unpick more loops.  I won't do too much more on this one until my February class starts.

Labeling the quilt tops for needed fabric amounts is very smart. I then need to add it to a notepad to find the pieces at the store. Chris

I have all these quilt tops hanging in the closet and never thoughtto pin the measurements on them. What a brilliant, simple idea!

I don't think I have ever made a Hunter Star pattern, it actually looks like an easy pattern to make once you get the color picked out!

Just love your Hunter Star blocks, what is the measurement of each block ? They look large on my screen. But then you stated yesterday that it is going to be a small quilt.

I have a quilt started like this one except my pieces were cut separately by me, many years ago before there were the cutters available now. A question - how do you choose the middle fabric for your "trip" quilts? Thanks.
