I am teaching a Zoom class for Beginner Hunter Star on May 28, 2022. As an introduction to I wanted to talk about Deb Tucker’s book Hidden Treasures. This book offers quilters over 30 projects to choose from. Finished quilts are a generous lap size. All the projects in this book are made using the Rapid Fire Hunter Star Petite tool.
Hidden Treasures is intended to be a design play book. All the quilts are made using the 7” block size option, and the simplest two color variation where half the pieces are dark value and half are light value pieces. Students can use the one of the following options: 8 dark fat quarters + 8 light fat quarters Or 8 dark fat quarters + 2 yards of a single light fabric Or 8 light fat quarters + 2 yards of a single dark fabric.
There are just 3 block configurations used in these patterns from Hidden Treasures.
The Hunter Star layouts above were all made from the same 48 blocks! This is why you want to learn the Deb Tucker way of making Hunter Stars!
In the Hunter Star Peite Zoom Class you will make the quilt project on page 2 of the Hunter Star Petite Tool Instructions.
In class you will make 16 blocks, but we won’t stitch the block halves together. This will give you an opportunity to try many different design options. Download the supply list here:
