Last month I happened to watch a video showing a neat way to make a easy Hunter’s Star block that seemed like a perfect project for my leftover batik pieces. Many of the batiks are from past Island Batik projects that I have done.
The blocks finish at 9 inches but it would be easy to change the size. If you have a bunch of 5 inch squares in your stash you might enjoy making this. I also have a 6 inch Hunter’s Star die from AccuQuilt that I have used before and I may try it with this scrappy look.
Last night I started joining all the blocks and now I am trying to decide if I want to make one large quilt or two quilts for twin beds….what do you think? Hmmmm…..I wonder what this would look like with 12 inch or 18 inch blocks. If you are interested in larger sizes and would like to see a post let me know.

Tomorrow the Island Batik ambassadors will take part in a blog hop for Wendy Sheppard’s new book Creative New Quilts & Projects from precuts or stash that has all kinds of beautiful quilts in it. We will be making her quilts in Island Batik fabrics and sharing them with you and each ambassador will be giving away a free copy of her book! I’ll post the schedule on my blog tomorrow.
