    Just finished piecing this Hunter Star Table Topper. I loved the piecing process but I am stuck as to how to quilt it. For all you Hunter Star pros....do you have a favorite quilting design for this block......my fmq skills are very limited and I don't want to mess this up :)

    Thats really pretty! I haven't done this pattern either. It lends itself to quilting around the red stars and then a swirly type design in the creme and green.....or you could QID ....or you could even cross hatch it after quilting around the red stars....thats how I might do it if I was looking for quick, easy and pretty. Whatever you decide will be really pretty though. Good job!

    well I have a black and white that I haven't quilted yet because I'm waiting to be struck with an idea. Did you paper piece or just cut the shapes and piece?

    You've done a beautiful job with this! I haven't done this pattern yet but my sister has. She stitched the stars 1/4" on the inside and the she SID for the rest and it turn out beautiful. I think it will be beautiful no matter how you quilt it. :)

    Your table topper is beautiful. I love the colors and that pattern is on my to do list. I'll have to live to be 250 to finish my list if I don't add any to it.

    Kathy....it isn't paper pieced...I made it using Deb Tucker's Rapid Fire ruler. I love the ruler....it is so easy to use.


    Thank you everyone for all your wonderful comments...much appreciated. I have to decided to outline the stars and I found a stencil I am going to use on the green and cream.....hopefully it will all work out.

    Thanks Again.
