    Rapid Fire Hunter's Star

    Went to a class on Deb Tucker's Rapid Fire Hunter's Star today. AWESOME. The instructor was wonderful, there were only 6 students so we received a lot of attention. I loved it. This system really makes short work of the Hunter's Star.

    Stars are exciting to sew and to quilt. Thanks for sharing your experience with us.

    Am curious on how her 'rapid fire' Hunter's Star works. A bit of explanation would be most helpful, so, I found this on YouTube:

    That was an interesting video to watch but I didn't recognize the pattern because she ends up with a solid star in the center whereas the others I've seen use alternate colours in the middle. Have fun with your new toy, but think if I were to make one I'd just stay with the old fashioned templates or the pp. version http://quilterscache.com/H/HuntersStarBlock.html

    Oh, that's fantastic! And it's beautifully pieced, too - you did a GREAT job of keeping those points lined up! Way to go!

    One of the great things about this "system" is that the points almost line themselves up. Makes the piecer look better than they are. LOL

    I met Deb Tucker at Quilt Market - what a wonderful tool! A Hunter's Star quilt has been on my WHIMM list (Work Hidden In My Mind) for some time, even made a block for a swap here on the board! That one was paper-pieced; so time consuming! So I couldn't help myself and just ordered a ruler online. (Thanks, Santa) Maybe when things slow down after Christmas I'll have a little time to quilt for myself. Love your blocks, Sunnie!!

    GORGEOUS Sunni - I tried to make the pattern with pp and gave up - How would I adjust the measurements if I wanted to make a 12" block instead of a 6? Did you have the special ruler? I was hoping to use all the gazillion rulers I have already!

    THANKS!

    I have the Petite Star Template. It will make 5", 6", 7" and 8" blocks. The Large star ruler makes blocks finishing to 7", 8", 9" and 10". A block is only 1/4 of the star so my 6" blocks ended up to be a 12 1/4" star block. Hope this isn't too confusing.

    I have been trying to find the rapid fire tool to purchase in the 12 1/2 inch size. Can you help me? I saw it demo'd at the Des Moines quilt show but should have bought it then and didn't.

    See post #18 in this thread. The small ruler is for several sizes and make blocks that are 1/4 of the star.
