Giant Hunters Star Quilt {A New Pattern}

A few months ago I experimented with making a Giant Hunter’s Star quilt.  My idea was to make the Hunter’s Star pattern work with a larger scale print.

I had two yards of a cheerful ocean-themed fabric covered in crabs, anchors, seaweed and shells.  It needed to be used and I wanted a quick finish.  I found a coordinating blue solid and started cutting.  To my surprise, I had a finished quilt top in just over two hours!

Making four large blocks created another star in the very center of the quilt.  With two yards of my feature fabric and two yards of a coordinating one I made a 64″ square lap quilt.  Two more yards for backing and 5/8 yards for binding and I had a finished quilt!

I had fun quilting this.  I gave myself permission to practice free motion quilting so I followed the outlines of the designs in the printed fabric, did an orange peel in all the stars, and organic straight lines in the blue background.

This seashell print is a fun one so I combined it with a blue stripe for a happy quilt back.

The other happy thing I did was write the Giant Hunter’s Star quilt pattern , which is now available in my Etsy shop .

It’s nice to have a pattern that can be made quickly, especially when you need to make a quilt to gift on short notice.

It gets even better, though:  I increased the size again and made a one block Supergiant Hunter’s Star quilt , too.  The fabric requirements are the same for both so you get two quilt patterns for the price of one.
