Hunter Star

I am planning to sew a little tonight but I thought I’d show you the progress Mom made on the Hunter Star we were working on when she was here.

This one started as a lap size quilt that I was making but Mom really wanted a bed size quilt in the same fabrics I was using but was afraid it was too many blocks to make herself so I gave her my finished blocks and helped her make the other blocks before she left. She has it done except for the last border that I told her I’d help her with. One of these days I’ll make some more blocks for a lap size quilt, they’re easy to make with the GO die.


  1. It’s gorgeous! My pink and grey Hunters Star is waiting in line at the long arm quilter. I really do love the pattern.

  2. I don’t blame her for wanting your blocks — as goreous as this is, I’d want a big quilt, too! I love the colors & the border fabric is PERFECT with the blocks! Will you use these same colors in yours?

  3. That quilt is beautiful and love the colors!! I have wanted to make a Hunters Star quilt for a couple of years. One of these days I will get it done. Your mother did a wonderful job!!

  4. Oh that is so pretty. When I saw it before I really admired all the colors you’d used… Hunter Star is such a beautiful pattern… I have made a blue version but I used Thangles which actually seemed like an awful lot of work. Maybe someday I’ll try the pattern again (minus Thangles). How nice to have a GO die.

  5. Hello Mary,

    Unfortunately I can not speak English well and so please excuse mistakes. But now I have to write. I follow your blog via email and admire all the beautiful quilts you do. Even if you are often not feeling well. I myself am chronically ill and often fail and often cannot patchwork. I admire your strength and energy and am always happy about your blog posts. I also thank you for being humble and not making a big fuss and doing business with all of this.

    The Hunter star is particularly beautiful. Too bad that you need a device to imitate it and that there is no manual for the Ruler.

    I also admire her beautiful knitting. I only do patchwork and have given up all other hobbies. Unfortunately, I can’t spend much time on my hobby. But my small family and very close friends love my patchwork.

    I really wish you and your family a blessing from the heart of God and also good health and many good times with the family and with our hobby.

    Kind regards from the heart
