    WOW, Thank you for this tut. When I looked at your pictures, I thought, Now why didn't I think of that. Again thank you. I can't wait to get started with this block.

    I am brand new to this site. LOVE your approach! I have been drooling over the hunter star for a long time, but haven't mastered the bias edge or scant 1/4" enough to try. Taking apart a quilt now that was supposed to be a wedding gift. The blocks came out different sizes from 15"-17" (kind impossible to make that work). Anyway, this really short circuts bias issues from the look of it. I could not tell what size your finished squares (which became triangles) were, as that pic was a little distorted. I'm also kicking around some thoughts to cut down on waste a little bit, because I LOVE your concept.

    Here's written instructions I personally authored for those who didn't understand the photos from the original post.

    Hunters Star Block Construction


    • Calculate desired finished block size + 1.25” to define Measurement A: _______ = block trim size.
    • Divide Measurement A by 2 to define Measure B: _______ = cut strip length & sub-block trim size.
    • Divide Measure B by 3 to define Measurement C: _______ = cut strip width size.
    • Multiply Measurement C by 2.25 to define Measurement D: _______ = square cut size of corner triangles.


    • For each sub-block, cut 3 strips of 2 light/dark fabric colors using measurements B & C.
    • Pair 2 light strips with 1 dark strip,
      & pair 2 dark strips with 1 light strip.
    • With right-sides-together, mark & sew corners as shown.
    • Trims seam allowances and press towards dark fabric.
    • With right-sides-together, pair up and sew two strips facing opposite directions.
    • Cut squares of each fabric color using Measurement D, then cut each square diagonally to obtain corner triangles.
    • Pair and sew two triangles of opposite fabric colors to sides of each strip length as shown with centers aligned.
    • Press seam allowances open & trim to Measurement B.
    • For each finished block, arrange and sew four sub-blocks together as shown.
    • Sew blocks into desired number of rows, then rows into a completed quilt top.

    Great job, if you study the photos and follow the pictures as if you are assembling the 4 squares and the sewing the 4 squares into the one makes it so easy! Thanks
    Beautiful.

    God bless you!

    There are a lot of Hunter's Star techniques on YouTube.

    Looks great! Isn't it funny how you come up with different ways of doing things and then find that somebody else thought of it too and put it in print. Thanks for sharing.

    It is easy to see the size of each block since you laid it all out on the mat. Thanks.

    I just finished up a Hunters Star --two colored--using te rapid fire ruler By Deb, It was the best investment I did. It goes so fast and everything turns out perfect. It took me 2 days to get the quilt top cut and pieced. It will fit a double bed easily. Just have to get it quilted now. I did it in grey and hot pink for my dgd for Christmas. When I get a few more ufo,s done I want to do another one 3 colored.
    I have the 7 to 10 inch ruler.
