    Red face deb tucker hunter star ruler

    Where in Canada would I be able to purchase this ruler?
    I did try the design site but couldn't get further than the 'add to cart', could not find the checkout or my cart for that matter.
    I have tried a couple of other US sites and the shipping is nearly as expensive as the ruler it's self.
    Thanks for any help.
    I love you gals and this board.
    Shirley.

    Here may be a contact for you. They are a distributor of the Hunter's Star for shops in Canada. There is an area on the site that you can enter your location and shops 'should' be displayed. I did not sign up to find out anything. Good Luck!!

    I'm going to start a Hunter's Star quilt. I have Jan Krentz's book where she describes beautifully the many different ways to make this block/quilt: templates, strip piecing, paper piecing, on fusible foundation , and one other method I forgot. I am not buying any special rulers but using what I have. I have enough rulers already ... except maybe a very large square ruler - over 12 1'/2".

    I have the 20 1/2 in. square ruler. I bought it from Keepsake. I love it and use it all the time.

    I am in the process of making a Hunter's Star quilt using Debs ruler. I have a couple of other patterns that don't use her ruler. I think I will like the outcome of the one using Deb's ruller the best. Good luck finding one.

    I made a Hunter's Star quilt in batiks and used Thangles. Super easy.

    On her website, the cart mysteriously changes to be named "shopping bag". You need to go to shopping bag (upper right, you might need to scroll right to see it) to complete your billing and shipping information and check out.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Have you seen Jenny Doan's Big Block Star Block Quilt? Go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tkm3nCferp4
    It is similar in a way and very, very easy and the big blocks are 25". You can make smaller sizes, of course. I am waiting for the mountain pass to clear so I can take my machine to my dealer to get looked at so I can start it. I prefer this look and method myself. But I like easy.

    I've made a Hunters Star with a paper piece pattern from Quilters Cache web site. No little pieces to deal with!

    The pattern makes a stunning quilt. Nice job ladies.

    I've looked at the special Rapid Fire Ruler/Template several times, but it is kind of pricey. Hoping to get a gift card for Christmas that I can use to buy one. No one seems to be willing to part with a used one. )
