    My quilt guild is doing the Rapid Fire Hunter's Star (by Deb Tucker) at retreat this summer. Can't wait to use the rulers I bought last summer.

    Hunter Star. Besides all the patterns available, there is a ruler for making this quilt easier than cutting all the half sq traingles. Have fun what ever way you make this quilt.

    This company has a the hunters Star pattern using half square triangles and it is sooooo much easier than the traditional way. I saw this at my LQS and was instantly hooked. It is simple to do with the Thangles pack but can also be done with just some hst. Just graph it out and break it down into triangles within the block. I have even made a miniature of the pattern this way. I have always loved this pattern but until I tried it with the triangles I thought it was too complex.
    Also here is the book I have on this pattern and I find it very easy to use.

It was in an old magazine, but they still sell the pattern online. The half square triangle pattern was super easy because you can use the thangles type paper. I'm already in my quilting room sorting through my fat quarters! Can't wait to start sewing.
    This was my first impression, too, from looking at your beautiful quilt. HSTs. (Although they are not my friends!). But they are probably more work than using the trapezoids. The tutorial posted by the woman in Russia makes it look super easy....once you get those trapezoids cut, which may not be as easy as they look, although she said she did not use a special ruler, just a triangle.

    Either way, your quilt is really gorgeous and striking, and has inspired me, like many others, apparently. This one goes on my list.

    Thanks for the photo and the inspiration!

    I love this pattern but have not had the time to make it. I now have a lot of FQ and could make a scrappy.

    I've never seen a scrappy Hunter's Star. sigh. Another one for my bucket list, too. I hope mine turns out as pretty as yours.

    I made one using Roolen's method and it absolutely ROCKS. Am getting ready to teach this method to a guild and am using 2" strips and cutting the trapezpids between the 1.25 and 3.25 marks on the Companion Ruler, and the triangles are cut from 5.75" squares cut once diagonally. The first time I made this quilt I cut the strips too small (1.5") and it was more trouble than I wanted, even though the quilt turned out beautifully. After the units are sewn I still have to square them up but this method sure beats paper piecing, using templates, or any other method I have seen.

    There is a new ruler out that does the Hunter's Star, if interested in it.
    I saw a Hunter Star quilt in the retreat house we were staying and thought
    it was really pretty, come to find out, it was a preprinted piece and the
    owner wanted to learn hand quilting and it looks like it was pieced!
    We were amazed at the neat work, it fooled us.

    Your scrappy hunter's star is gorgeous. My MIL made this pattern in navy and white. It is so nice. I really hope I inherit it!

    bossross your quilt is so pretty, I found the Fons and Porter Magazine in the book shelf and probably one of the reasons I bought it was to make Hunters Star... I even had it bookmarked with a paper.... enjoy making your next HS quilt!! and thanks for the beutiful picture too..

    Hunter Star! This was the first pattern I made as a new quilter. Ignorance is bliss, was tols after the fact that a beginner should start with four patch...oops. It is stunning in 2 colors.
