    Easy peasy hunter star and variations.

    I was going to paper piece a hunters star. Cut fabric ready and realised I needed no paper. These pictures show what I found. You may need to do a little juggling yourself to find triangle size and widths.

    First time doing this so be gentle been a while since I was here.

    I believe there is a mistake in the third picture regarding the pencil line drawn on the white strip on the left. It should go the other way right?

    Sizes and a little tutorial of what you have done. Yours is beautiful. I have steered away from this block for quite a while, maybe you can help steer me back.

    This pattern was designed by Patty Paddock (c) 1993. I believe it is still available at "The Fabric Cupboard" in Moncton, NB, Canada. Here is a link to their blog - http://thefabriccupboard.blogspot.ca...&by-date=false (scroll down to September 10, 2013). She still teaches this class once or twice a year. It really is a very easy technique!

    May I just add to http://www.quiltingboard.com/members/roxanneleblanc-u39693.html this came from my own head. I don't know or have seen her work.
    I was using the paper pieced method when I realised the paper was not necessary.
    For sizes is you look at my carefully placed pieces .

    Sorry I don't understand the directions, but wish I did. Hunter Star is very close to the top of my list.

    This is a wonderful way to create this block! Thanks so much for posting this.
    Only comment is that I agree with a previous poster that I think the patch on the left side has a line drawn in the wrong direction in photo 3. Actually, I think you can ignore photo 3 same info as photo2

    I think what might be confusing some is the order of the last two pictures are reversed. In other words the finished block is shown before the sub-block being squared up. The finished block is four squared up sub-blocks. The sub-blocks are made up of two pieced strips plus 2 triangle pieces. The other thing that initially confused me was the red fabric. Apparently the grayish red fabric is the wrong side of the red fabric. I also agree that the line drawn on the one square should be going the other way.

    The size of pieces used would help clarify it but with a little bit of thought you could get things sized.

    The one link listed (the one listed on quilt board) it appears broken. I don't know if anyone else is having this problem. If this is a copy-write protected technique then perhaps that is why the link has been removed.

    Here is a site that uses templates that are a free download. This should give an idea as to what sizes to make your pieces using the mentioned method.

    I looked at the squares on the cutting board, and it looks like the strips are 2" x 5" . . . I'm going to go try it and see if it works :-)

    From the pictures, it looks like each white rectangle and each red rectangle is 2" x 5". I think the triangles are 6"? Then it looks like she trims these blocks down to 6 1/2", and once 4 are sewn together, it forms a 12 1/2" unfinished (12" finished) block.

    Sorry I used these as pictures in a workshop. I ask what they see in the picture , a wrong line would b e for them to find as all quilters can do the diagonal join.
    I also try to not say this is the correct and only way
    Widths 2" by 6 " for rectangles
    The large triangle was a square halved .
    I did make al. Pieces much larger for mistakes and to change sizes.

    Look at the cutting board and the inch marking lines.
    Thank you all for the comments.

    That looks a lot like Deb Tucker's method, without her ruler. Which I have and have never used.
