    Scrappy Hunter Star Block Swap - Due Sept 15th

    SCRAPPY HUNTER 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 method pictured below.

    Name:  Hunters Star quilt block.jpg

Size:  51.2 KB

    Please use any one print for the units shown in ‘gold’ and a white, off-white or other light-colored fabric for the other half of the quilt block.

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

    Light colored fabric: (same print per block) A small print is okay.
    4 ” square

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

    We will be making these blocks in sets of six. You may make/send as many as 6 sets of six blocks (36 blocks) to be swapped.
    The mailing deadline is SEPTEMBER 15TH. Please include $6.80 IN POSTAGE for a return Padded Flat Rate Envelope.
    BE SURE to include your full mailing address. 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!!

    Yeah!!! I forgot to include something in the posting instructions. Please label your quilt blocks. It helps me immensely. I labeled the blocks for the August swap this morning so I'd know who sent what.

    Thanks in advance - - -

    I am in again for six sets. They should be right on target this time. Life has its moments, then it is me.

    Here's who we have so far:

    Glasqlts
    Jannie (2 or 3 sets)
    Rosemary Attaway (1 or 2 sets)
    Chasezzz (2 or 3 sets)
    Judith1005
    QuilterMomma (6 sets)

    I humbly ask that, especially for those making 6 sets, please make as many different blocks, using different fabrics for each block as possible. Otherwise, the other swappers end up receiving multiples/duplicates of the same block.

    Hi All!
    I'll join in with some sets. I'm not sure how many yet. I have a couple of other commitments, so I need to be more tentative at this point in time.

    Great to have you both. The ### of sets isn't as important as knowing you're participating.

    JaneQuilter, the more sets you send Jane, the happier she'll be. lol If you tell her you're sending 1 set and she gets 6 from you, whoopee! :-p :-) Right, Jane? The more sets she gets from everyone, the easier it is to trade them out to everyone. The fewer sets, the more possibility of getting duplicate blocks or your own blocks back. That's why the more people that sign up, the better. :-)

    Since many of us have fabrics we consider to be in the medium range (and, yes it all depends what you pair it with to get contrast) how about we do some swapping?? ((I love swapping fabric!!))

    We're probably making our HST's using different techniques which would call for differenct sizes of fabric. Me? I'm using a 6" square of each light/dark. What is everyone else doing? That would make a difference.

    Thoughts??

    Are you sewing your HST with this method?

    Yes, Givio, that's the technique I use except I rounded my math up to 6" to give me a little more room for error.

    How's everyone doing? Judith - I saw your HST's on the other post. Looks good!!

    Everyone please keep in mind a couple things:

    * good, strong light/dark contrast is important in the success of these blocks ((please avoid a light print paired with a white background fabric))
    * there are lots of choices available for the light side of our HS blocks in addition to the white, white tone-on-tone, or off-white mentioned in the instructions. Think: neutrals or small prints with a white or off-white background.

    I'm a huge Bonnie Hunter fan and she has a wonderful article on Neutrals.

    http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2013/...-neutrals.html

    I encourage you to consider using the types of prints shown in the first image in her article. However, I'm not so sure the Winney the Pooh print further down in her article would work in our blocks. LOL - - -

    Thanks JClinganrey. This opens us up to using some very interesting fabrics in our scrap quilt. Thanks for choosing such a great design. I made a 2-fabric Hunters star once and it was rather boring. This has been anything but boring. I am spending a lot of time hovering over my fat qtrs trying to choose great matches for my swap group. I got a wonderful pkg in the mail from my swapper and I keep dreaming of what mine will look like when it is done. Thanks for your hard work and for doing this several months in a row. Your dedicated member, Jane

    Laid out the blocks from August (two sets or 12 blocks) with some I made that I will keep. Finished my two sets for September but am headed out of town for most of the week, so they will go in the mail when I return. I want to play with the layout up until the end, so I will not do blocks of 4 as you did, Jane. Name:  IMG_1809.JPG
