Hunter's Rainbow

What are you most proud of? That my list of 45 family quilts is down to 12, in just over 18 months! I like how it all came together, with the stars joining up at all corners. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Random really can be random!

You Can Make This

hobbyhorse made Hunter's Rainbow with:

  • Most of the fabric used in this quilt was purchased in 'grab bags' at the annual Tent Sale of one of our town's quilt shops. The black was 'borrowed' from a pending project and the white was left over from another quilt.

Q&A with hobbyhorse

nancy3ols6687977 asked:
I love this scrappy Hunter's Star. How wide are the strips, did you make squares first and cut them diagonally, and how big is the square before all eight get put together???
hobbyhorse answered:
I used a collection of scrappy strips, I think they were about 2 1/2". You can try and see the triangle blocks on the cutting board. Each triangle was made separately, then trimmed down to size. I was going by a picture in a magazine. Truthfully, I don't remember for sure, but think each square was 8" before being turned into a four unit block.
