    PLEASE Help find a pattern

    I'm hoping someone can help - last week I ran across a scrappy batik Hunter's Star quilt pattern that uses squares and HST vs the traditional method. The pattern name was Hunter Star (no 's on the Hunter). The pattern was from pastel batiks and black. The first wide border was a darker mauve pink on all 4 sides with the black on the star points extending into the border and then the left and bottom wide border is a darker print and the top and right border was black - as a diagonal at the color changes at the 2 corners. I've looked and looked and searched till I'm near blind. All I can figure is that I wandered to a sight from a blog picture somewhere. I've looked back through the site history, etc. I've even looked at my work since work and home have different internet providers - still no luck.

    I hope this description will jog someone's memory and you can help me. Obviously, if I could post a picture I wouldn't need your help! Thanks so much for any information you can help with.

    The one I made was called Orion Star and was a Thangle pattern. Very easy to do and was all squares and hst.

    Dear Nessie - Yes, yes, yes! Thank you so much - truly - I did open the links in the history. I don't know how you found it, but I'm so happy for your help. Thanks again. Needless to say, I'm ordering it now. :-)

    Lynne, you're very welcome! I found it, by doing a Google Image search, for "Hunter Star."

    It is a very pretty quilt and looks very tedious.

    Lynne, no need to apologize. Folks have been misspelling my name, for years; I'm used to it. I posted the spelling comment because a few folks had sent PMs to "Nessie" and needless to say, they went to some other QB member instead of me.

    I made one with Deb Tucker's Hunter Star tool. Very easy. Goggle her - I love her tools and patterns. Also ck out her gallery for nice ideas. Love the scrappy batik quilt here.

    I looked at the book, but I think that one is made the traditional way. The pattern that uses squares instead of those (difficult to work with) trapezoids is the single pattern linked earlier in the thread. Back up in the thread and you should find it.

    Edit: Here is a link to her pattern that uses squares and half-square triangles (instead of trapezoids).

    This would be my suggestion as well. Deb Tucker's tool and directions are terrific and well worth the expense. She even has videos on her site demonstrating the Hunter Star tool.

    In the picture of the quilt here, it looks like they didn't quilt within any of the stars, or am I just not seeing it? If not, does this help highlight the stars?

    Ladies, thank you so much for your help and the added links of the other Hunter' Star patterns. I look often, and post seldom but know that the kindness and generosity flows freely and this time it came my way. :-)

    The cascade quilts tutorial is one that I plan to incorporate into the pattern I was searching for vs. all the squares. The unique borders of the Bear Paw Productions quilt caught my eye immediately and I've learned that even though most math is fun ... purchase the pattern, support the designer's idea and save myself loads of time - which is always much more expensive than the cost of the pattern. I'm a newbie quilter, but a seasoned needlework designer and time is a precious commodity and therefore try to remember this.

    An early Thanksgiving wish to you all! Lynne

    No, I didn't quilt in the stars and yes, I felt like it helped make the stars "pop".
