Hunters Star and Klosjes
I have been having a little dig around in the UFO box and came out with this Hunters Star top. It was my test piece when I bought Deb Tuckers Rapid fire Hunters star ruler last year at the Vermont Quilt Festival. You may remember back in May I put a Hunters Star quilt in to Quilts UK , It was Deb's ruler I used for that quilt.
I saw Deb and her husband again this year in Paducah and bought A lot of these rulers home with me ( Boy They were heavy in my luggage). I am going to be teaching this method of Hunters Star at Cowslip Workshops next March. It is really very accurate and fast method and love it. I want to make another at some point and already bought the fabric. Now just have to find the time to fit another quilt in the list that is my head whirling around.
This top just needed a border adding , Funny how something just sits their for ages being ignored and then you can actually finish it in very little time.
It's 9 klosjes this week . Total now 97.
Probably won't be doing much in the way of sewing this week as I have my Mum coming to stay. It's her Birthday on Tuesday so its a big celebration with my son and girlfriend at a local restaurant. I haven't ordered candles for the cake as we would need the fire brigade to distinguish them, but I am happy that she has made it in pretty good health to 86.
