    Default Hunter's Star? Suggestions please. :)

    This is one of those patterns that is so on my bucket list.

    I have watched Jenny's tutorial, and no offense, (love her tutorials and she is a GREAT teacher) but I am not sure I like the layout of her hunter's star. She did simplify it for sure, but I really love the original hunter's star pattern, especially the two color ones. I have also viewed other tutorials for the hunter's star, and some seem confusing to me.

    Have you made a quilt using a different technique or template? What would you recommend to some one who is scared to try this pattern? I so want to do this quilt. But fear has gripped me to even try this one. I do have two quilts to complete before attempting this. So I am trying to be proactive and tackle the fear and ask you wonderful folks if you have some suggestions, or links, or a favorite template.

    Thank you all in advance. I look forward to your replies.

    Just try one block. Out of scraps. Tell yourself you are just playing. Nothing to lose.
    Anytime I try something new, I practice on odd and end scraps. I will have enough odd practice blocks to make a quilt out of one of these days! (Not a pretty one, granted. Haha)

    Just took a quick peek at the tutorial again because I had forgotten how she did it. I would do what Snip said with two colors of 5" squares. Wherever Jenny has a white block put one color and wherever she has a print put color 2. You should end up with a HS of just 2 colors.

    I just cut one out with my Accuquilt and have it on my to-do list.

    That's the same tutorial I planned to use if I ever make this quilt pattern. I printed those directions off & have them in my notebook. However, I think I want more than just 2 colors. Making a sample block is a good idea.

    I, too, would like to make a Hunter's Star one of these days. Quite some time ago I saved this tutorial:

    It seems straight forward enough.

    I actually like Cascade Quilt's block better if you are only using 2 colors. She incorporates the 4 patch with the star. Jenny does them as 2 separate blocks and you have to make different amounts of the A and B block. I would probably make a block each way to see which worked better for me.

    I bookmarked this tutorial, it's layer cake friendly. Haven't tried it myself but it seems straightforward.

    I made the Hunter's Star quilt using Deb Turner's Rapid Fire Ruler several years ago. I liked the way it went together.
