Hello and Happy Friday to you! The weekend is almost here! Yay!
I have been sewing this week with the Fat Quarter Shop again! So much fun!
The Fat Quarter Shop is doing a neat series called the “Classic and Vintage Series”. In this series, they take an old classic quilt pattern and make it fresh and new – and much easier to piece together, too! It’s a great series. They worked on the Hunter Star Block this time and they have truly made this block a piece of cake to put together!
For a free Hunter Star Block pattern and video tutorial check out these links:
The Hunter Star block is a super neat quilt block. Although it looks somewhat simple by itself, once you put it together with other blocks you get an amazing star. The pattern is easy to follow and super easy. Definitely beginner friendly.
I chose to use the lovely new Dorset Collection of fabrics by Laura Ashley. I love the pretty greys, whites, and pops of yellow.
I made a total of twelve blocks to create a table runner. Each block measured 9 1/2″ by 9 1/2″. It ended up being a wonderful sized table runner for my table.
I quilted my Hunter Star table runner with 1/4″ straight line quilting and I love the texture it added.
I just love this quilted table runner!! If you’d like to create more than just one Hunter Star Block, you might be interested in the getting the entire Hunter Star Quilt Pattern or the Hunter Star Quilt Kit, featuring the Ombre Confetti Metallic fabrics by V & Co. They are truly stunning!
You can also shop for Laura Ashley fabrics like the ones I used here.
If you create the Hunter Star Block, I’d love to see what you make!
