Starting the Hunter Star........

Yesterday I cut 8 more Australian fabrics for my Hunter Star.  I paired the fabrics, 12 sets of them and started sewing the pieces.  After I sew all of these I will decide what other fabrics I want to add or which ones I want to repeat.  I didn't want to turn on the iron yet with so few pieces sewn so the large triangle isn't sewn onto the other piece yet.  I can cut GO dies on my Studio cutter with an adapter.  The GO dies come with a sewing diagram which I needed for this block.

I didn't realize that the star is a secondary pattern.

Well, I sure didn't expect the block to look like this. I'm like Gene, didn't know the star was a secondary block. Waiting to see more Wanda.

I can see how you need high contrast between the fabrics.

Looks good so far. I am taking your cue for my next project....make a few, see what works, and be prepared to cut more:) Thanks.

Love love love AccuQuilt. I made a red and white Hunters Star recently with the GO! die. It went together like butter.

This has always been one of my favorite patterns. I can't wait to see yours.

The Studio dies are on sale, BOGO, but not the the GO. I would love the Flowering snowball one. Can't wait to see the sewn block.

I'm looking forward to watching the Hunter Star develop, the fabrics look good together.
