Default Rapid Fire Hunter's Star ruler ?

Has anyone used this to make a Hunter's Star quilt? I am going to make 1 for my niece as a wedding gift. Have printed a tute from Cascade Quilts that uses 3-4 charm packs that I was going to use, then saw the video on this ruler & am rethinking how to make the quilt. Looks like there will be fewer seams to quilt over & just wonder what you thought of the ruler if you used it. Thank you. Vickie

I have used this ruler to make two quilts. The things I don't like are that there is some waste of fabric and the process can be tedious. The things I like are that the seams "nest" and the finished product is PERFECT! This is a quilt I made for QOV using fat quarters. Good Luck!

I have an old PP pattern that I have never used. I haven't seen the ruler. LOVE your quilt luana. Some service person is going to adore this quilt!

I am in the process of making a quilt using this ruler. Mostly I like the result. I think the process is rather demanding. The You-tube video was a bit confusing to me and I had to watch it several times along the way.

I used the ruler to make a 96" square quilt for my brother, then a couple of pillow shams. I had to refer back to the instructions a couple of times, but everything lined up perfectly. hunters-star.jpg

I also used the ruler to make this one for my sister. A really fun ruler. I first saw it on u tube and had to try it.

I'm getting ready to put one together for my oldest son who is an avid hunter (he eats what he harvests). I have a pp pattern and couple others. Just can't justify the cost of the ruler. All of the above quilts are beautiful but the cost holds me back because of one quilt.

I the bought the Rapid Fire ruler and it's great for piecing the block but a little tedious. I used it to make one quilt. I bought the Hunter Star Die for my Go and that is the best way for me. I've made many of the Hunter star blocks using the die cuts.
