    February Scrappy Hunters Star block swap

    Welcome to our Hunter Star block swap. We will be making scrappy Hunter Star blocks 8 ” unfinished using the easier piecing method pictured below. This is an example only to show the pattern. You do not need to use a ‘gold’ or yellow print for half of the Hunter’s Star block.

    Please use one print for half of the block shown in ‘gold’ and a neutral light-colored fabric for the other half of the quilt block. The goal is a good light/dark contrast. Please check the internet for examples of Scrappy Hunter’s Star quilts for ideas and inspiration!

    Print fabric: (same print per block)
    4 ” square

    Light colored fabric: (same print per block)
    4 ” square

    There are lots of choices available for the light side of our Hunter’s Star blocks! Think: neutrals or small prints with a lighter background.


    8 Half Square Triangles (HST’s) 2 ” unfinished from the same print/light background fabric.


    We will be making these blocks in sets of six. You may send as many as 4 sets of six blocks (24 blocks) to be swapped. Please PM me with:

    Your screen name
    Your real name
    Address/city/state/zip


    The mailing deadline is FEBRUARY 15TH. Please include $6.80 In postage for a return Padded Flat Rate Envelope. Please label your quilt blocks. Any blocks not labeled will be returned unswapped.

    BE SURE to include your full mailing address. As long as we have at least 8 swappers we will be making and swapping Hunter Star blocks each month so we all will have a great scrappy assortment for our quilts!!

    What colors do you wish us to use in lieu of the gold? Are there any colors that you specifically do want? I'm really interested in joining in.
    Housework is for those who don't quilt!

    I am thrilled to say that NWBusymom and I pooled our blocks together to get this wedding quilt completed. NWBusymom will be quilting with a Baptist Fan. I had the fun of piecing it. It is 80 x 80 but could not get the whole thing in the photo

    If we don't have at least 8 swappers by Jan 27th then I'll cancel the swap and return all received blocks.

    Since we don't have enough swappers, I'm calling this swap a wrap. Thanks to everyone who participated. We saw many wonderful Hunter's Star blocks and some really cool fabrics and color combinations. I appreciate all the enthusiasm and encouragement among everyone on the threads over the past several months.

    What a great group! I hope to see some more amazing pictures of your great scrappy Hunter's Star quilts.

    Thanks again!

    I'm sorry, too, to see it end, but I got some amazing blocks from many board members. They are not yet assembled, but waiting in a project box. I've counted and have enough for a queen size quilt. I will get around to assembling and posting in the future. Thanks to all the swappers that participated, and to Jane especially for all her hard work. This quilt will provide special memories......Jane Q
