    October Scrappy Hunter's Star swap - Due Oct. 15th

    Scrappy Hunter's Star Block Swap

    Welcome to our Hunter Star block swap. I’ve hosted block swaps in the past and am excited to offer another 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.

    Name:  Hunters Star quilt block.jpg
Views: 701
Size:  51.2 KB

    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 white or off-white background.

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


    We will be making these blocks in sets of six. You may send as many as 6 sets of six blocks (36 blocks) to be swapped.

    The mailing deadline is OCTOBER 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!!

    Let’s get started!!

    Oh and do the six have to be from the same fabric (identical)?

    Yes.

    Since this is a scrappy swap, it's best to send six different blocks. HOWEVER, each Hunter's Star block is to have ONE dark and ONE light fabric. No scrappy within a block.

    A bit of housekeeping for this month: please be sure you square up & trim your quilt blocks. I've had to square up more than a few blocks. Also, be sure to include your return mailing address even if you think I have it, I probably don't. Lastly, LABEL each quilt block please.

    This is not as easy as simply 'dealing out a deck of cards' kind of approach. I put a lot of thought into this and try to be sure, as much as possible, that everyone has at least one quilt block from every other swapper. Sometimes it's not possible, but I try. I can't do that if the blocks aren't labeled.

    Thanks in advance for your help!!

    I would encourage you to look at pictures we have posted on last months' swap. That will give you a good idea.

    If you have any other questions, please ask.

    Hi Jannie, I believe each block needs to be marked. At least, that's what I did last month.

    Hi Jane, I'm in for 5 sets. I just need to label each block and they will be ready to send off.
