    Purple Scrappy Hunter's Star

    I found out last week that my sister in law was in hospital, so last Sunday night I cut out the quilt, and I finished it today. I will mail it to her tomorrow. I used all the leftover purple fabric I had from another quilt plus a couple of extras. Her grandson's name is Hunter so I thought the pattern was very appropriate To save time I thought I would attach the binding both front and back by machine,using a decorative stitch, I'm really not thrilled with the way it turned out, it seaems to have made the binding feel stiff. I think I will stick to sewing it on by hand from now on.

    Wow you are amazingly fast and accurate. Beautiful quilt and wonderful sister! Did you use Deb Tucker's rulers or anything special tools for the star?

    I love your quilt!!! The colors are wonderful. I must try this pattern & I agree....bindings need to be done by hand.

    Wow! I love the hunter star and the fabric you used are great. The binding will ease up after washing so don't stress over that. She'll love it.
