This all-day class will show you how to use the large Rapid Fire Ruler to make beautiful Hunter’s Stars, with single-piece star points. During class, we will make 16 blocks 10-inch blocks. However, the ruler can be used for various sized blocks, down to 7½ inches. There are many combinations of fabric that you can use to make your blocks. We have shown you a couple of them in the store. The class is taught by Kathleen Bassi.
For each set of 8 blocks, you will need 1½ yards of fabric, a total of 3 yards for the 16 blocks planned for the class, in one of the combinations described below:
- For a quilt with one main color and stars of a contrasting color, you need 1 2/3 yard of the main color and 5/8 yard of the star color.
- For a quilt split between two contrasting colors equally, you need 1½ yards of each color
