As you may know, I’m doing an Accuquilt GO! Challenge each month in 2014 and I figured I’d show how to design quilts with the hunter star die.
Each section is 6” but finishes at 12” for a star (4 part block)
First if you search for “HUNTER” in EQ blocks
You’ll see these. Add the blue and pink one to the sketchbook, that’s the one that matches the GO! die.
This is what a layout would look like with no colors changed.
(remember to set the block size to 6”)
And the same block with ON POINT setting for the quilt, gives a totally different look.
And this is the Accuquilt version.
Here I’ll just play around with different colors to inspire you
Here, the stars are all black! what a difference!!
Here I used the same colors but flipped every other block twice, quite a different look too!
How about something scrappy?
one that’s totally scrappy and one with the secondary part of the block being white.
A more “planned” layout with white in the background
And one is black and white and grey with ONE 12” section having red!
Now look at how different it is when you color the parts of the blocks differently!
Are you inspired? do you have this die? have you ever designed a hunter star quilt or made a hunter star quilt?
We’d all love to see it!
