    Hunter's Star and Adventures with my new phone

    Name:  20190502_183222_resized.jpg
Views: 2340
Size:  353.7 KBHere is as far as I have sew up on the two color Hunter's Star. It is all cut on the Accuquilt, and I think that thing paid for itself on this quilt alone. There is no way I could have been this accurate. It is going together very well. Most of the rest is cut out. We will see if I have enough.

    On the phone front you can see that I have posted a picture with this thread. Yeeahh! I was using my new Samsung 10 e and it was taking too big a picture to upload to QB. But I was sending it to my computer using Gmail. So the Verizon lady said try the regular email icon. Sure enough there was my opportunity to resize the picture into small (10%) or medium (30%) or large. The pictures when I take them are over 3 MB and sometimes up to 4 MB. Way too big for the acceptance of 1.9MB on QB. But this works and I am thrilled to see all of you again.

    Beautiful Hunters Star. I used MSQC pattern/tutorial and it went together very well, but I'm sure the Accuquilt will be a good investment down the road. Can't comment on the phone situation however as I still have a flip phone, however was having trouble with our Canon camera taking too large pics for the board. My hubbie figured out there is a setting on the camera that still takes clear pictures but has fewer MB, so that worked.........yippee.

    Beautiful color of your quilt. And I’m glad to hear you used the Accuquilt. I have the die but haven’t used it - yet! This is one of my favorite patterns - I love them in two colors and I also like ones using many colors. Hard to chose which I like more. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Your HS is wonderful! This pattern is on my 'quilting bucket list' too I really like your 2-color option and have always been curious if there's a noticeable improvement when using the Accuquilt to cut fabric - glad you're having such success with it! Can't wait to see your quilt finished!

    I love your quilt. I think you have just sold the Accu Quilt dies for this quilt. I was waiting until I saw some dies that I thought I would use more than 1 or 2 times, and I am too thrifty to just buy the strips or blocks dies.

    No Bonnie Hunter did not come up with this design. It is a very old one. But Harriet has quilted my Bonnie Hunters and knows I am going to be in the show and tell in Shipshewana in November.

    I'm fairly happy with the die, but it does hold some threads. I'm not sure why. I have not told Accuquilt this yet. I've been meaning to, but have been fairly busy.

    At least I've got the phone down pat.

    This is my first HS. I wanted to get the pattern down before I ventured into multicolored ones. My inspiration is one that was put on this board for a granddaughter. It is navy around the edge and ivory, pale coral and grey in the body. I bought Deb Tucker's book on HS and have several I want to attempt. They can all be cut with the Accuquilt. When I get this one done, I'll make a tute on what I did complete with pictures. My ways might not be the best, so take it with a grain of salt.

    Of course cutting with the Accuquilt uses up slightly more fabric than cutting it from strips. So I had to scour the internet for another yard. I'm still not sure if I have enough. To make matters worse, I used scissors to open the package of the last yard I received today and snipped the fabric. Good Grief! I can't believe I did that.
