Here is my newest table runner made with the Hunter Star block.
It is a good thing I took these photos a couple days ago because right now my yard is muddy slush as we have had some warmer weather and some rain. What a different 2 days can make!
The snow was very, very wet…..perfect snowball weather!
I used my AccuQuilt Hunter Star 12 inch block die which can be used with the GO Baby or GO to make this table runner. I usually write on my dies so I know what size to cut my fabrics. My measurements are a little bigger than the actual size of the die I will cut.
There is a right way and a wrong way to line up your blocks pieces. Take a look at this photo to see how to correctly align the pieces. This is one of the things I love about the AccuQuilt dies.
The sections are very easy to put together.
I made 3 blocks and I used a pink batik I had in my stash and some of the Marblehead fabric that I used to make this quilt. I just have a little bit left of it.
I used 2 1/2 inch strips for my binding and sewed it on by machine on my 15-91 vintage Singer.
Closeups are always fun to see.
I’m using my new Photo Shoot Quilt for the background in this photo.
A post isn’t complete without a peek at the back. This fabric is another of my oldies but I love the soft, delicate flowers……it works for me! The colors are very good in this photo.
I have to say that this has really been a fun block to make and I’ve been playing in Electric Quilt 7 to come up with some other projects.
I will be linking this up with Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014 for the last Saturday of pink for February.
I am adding a couple photos of Mississippi river, the wind is so strong those are white caps on the river. The wind is also really breaking up the ice.
Same photo just a little close and you can see eagles.
