Twilight Chic Week

The fabrics featured in this post were given to me by Island Batik and Studio 180 Design.

Welcome to Studio 180 Design’s “Twilight Chic Blog Hop”.  I have been lucky enough to make 4 quilts from Twilight Chic line of batiks by Island Batik for Deb Tucker.

For this challenge I chose to make a hunter star quilt from Deb Tucker’s book “Hidden Treasures” using the Rapid Fire Hunter Star Petite tool.  Hidden Treasures offers you 29 different lap size quilt patterns and 7 bed runner patterns for the hunter star.

The same pieces can make very different quilts.  There are just 3 different block configurations used in these patterns.

The pattern I chose used the first two blocks.

I made 24 of each.

With these blocks I could choose from 16 different quilts or 3 bed runners.

These two are Curveball page 30 and Checkmate page 32.

Strawberry Fields page 40 and Spring Fling page 48.

La Belle page 50 and Pele page 74.  These 6 quilts are just a sample of what you can make with these blocks.  So what did I choose………

I chose to make Autumn Twilight on page 66.  But, I call mine Twilight Treasure!

This book is definitely a treasure!

Royal Treasures is here at last!

After three long years of labor, Deb Tucker’s newest book, Hunter’s Star Royal Treasures, has finally arrived!

Royal Treasures is a follow up to Deb Tucker’s Hunter’s Star Hidden Treasures book.  After publishing Hidden Treasures, which focused exclusively on throw sized Hunter Star quilts, Deb began getting requests and questions about bigger, bed-sized projects.  Hunter’s Star Royal Treasures has over 40 brand new quilt designs, all made exclusively with Studio 180 Design’s Large Hunter’s Star Tool.

The quilts in Royal Treasures were created by Deb Tucker and dozens of Certified Instructors, including ME!  With that many different creators there is something for everybody in this book.

Waves of Joy

I am over the moon proud to have my quilt “Waves of Joy” included in Royal Treasures!  Waves of Joy is a King Size quilt made with fabric from V and Co., Simply Colorful II by Moda.  I chose 4 basic colors with varying prints in each color.  But you could choose to use a simple two color format of lights and darks.

Using Deb Tucker’s Rapid Fire Hunter Star process, you will increase your productivity and decrease your stress.  Each Hunter Star block consists of 2 triangles. 2 trapezoids, plus 4 star points.  It’s all about the color play.

I offer Hunter Star workshops where you will make a “Basic Recipe Wall Quilt” using the Hunter Star tool. When you are done you will understand and have the skills to make any Hunter Star quilt.  Contact me for workshop information or find a Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor near you.
