A Cozy Quilt Shop Original Kit!
Our Scrap Hunter Star kit contains a beautiful collection of jewel toned fabrics for you to use in making a Scrappy Half-square Triangles quilt from Jan Krentz's Hunter Star Quilts & Beyond. Jan designed the quilt using a wide range of colors in lights and darks and our kit has them all picked out for you and ready to go! The book offers very detailed instructions for making the versatile half-square triangles to emphasize the Hunter Star diagonal design with strongly contrasting placement of the lights and dark in our kit. The end result is a colorful, scrappy star!
Our kit includes fabrics needed to complete your quilt top - approximately 44" x 44".
You will need Jan Krentz's Hunter Star Quilts & Beyond for your instructions on making the quilt, found on page 59. In this book, you'll also get 8 other stellar star projects to make later, with helpful techniques and very detailed directions photos to help you along each step of the way!
Cozy Chatter: Betty Alofs, who made the sample quilt in our photo, recommends using Sewline™ Fabric Pencils for smooth fabric marking when Jan's directions call for marking your fabric. You might want two different colors to work with - one for lighter fabrics and one for darker fabrics. These pencils are very comfortable to hold and give clean, clear markings that come off easily with an eraser or a spot of water. The mechanical pencil style is always sharp! Check out all five colors of Sewline™'s Fabric Pencils.
Betty also used the Easy Triangle Tool to get perfect half-square triangles for her Scrappy Half-square Triangles quilt! The tool does all the measuring for you. All you have to do is mark, sew on the marked lines, and cut apart. You don't even have to square up afterwards.
