    Very pretty. No quilting suggestions. I always get stumped on the quilting.

    Lovely blocks! I would plan a big design for the 4 large triangles that make a square, maybe another star. I would SITD the other formed stars and echo the v shapes between the star tips.

    Hazel B (my mom who just passed in November) Always wanted a red and white quilt and she wanted a hunter's star too. She loved quilts but didn't do much because of living in El Paso, TX.

    That is really pretty. I like that it is all red and white, but the reds are different. A hunter star is on my bucket list, but not for a while, I already have too many projects going. However you quilt it, it will be beautiful.

    I love your piecing so far! I can't help with a quilting idea but you're wise to be thinking ahead. Please show us what you finally come up with.

    No quilting suggestions but love your quilt.
    In my dream world, fabric is free and sewing makes you thin.

    I, too, have made a very large red and cream Hunters Star Quilt. It is one of my favorites. I sent my quilt to be long-arm quilted. I just chose an overall pattern and it looks fantastic! Good luck!

    I like this idea! I have no specific suggestions for the 4 large triangles though. I also wanted to tell you how much I love your quilt so far. Can't wait to see it finished!

    That's already gorgeous and going to be really spectacular when you're done!

    This blog post inspired me to make my first HS - she has this and a couple of other HS showing the quilting she chose http://mmmquilts.blogspot.com/2013/0...for-paula.html

    I am super new to quilting but my first thought was circles in the diamond sections and SITD on the rest. Beautiful quilt!

    I love your quilt, it is really beautiful. What method did you use to piece it? I hope to make one soon.

    no help from me, but i just want you to know how beautiful it is.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Your quilt is amazing... I love the 2 color choices. I made MSQC's version of hunter's star last year in scrappy colors with tans. I quilted it FMQ allover with leaves and berries. I chose this quilting design because it reminded me of nature and added some curves to the very straight lines of the hunter star.
    I quilted using a tan colored thread, which might work well for your colors. Perhaps something a little darker than your tan fabrics, (Khaki maybe?) so it doesn't show up looking white on your reds.

    Your Hunter's start is beautiful...I usually google to get ideas from other quilts of similar patterns to see what might fit best...sometimes it's helpful, sometimes not. We will definitely want to see photos when you've finished it.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I love your quilt! The varying shades of red add so much interest. I would google that pattern to see what others have done.
