Hunter's star

Hi friends!
Sunday was beautiful!
I layered out my' Hunter's star' blocks .
I have completed 14 and i need 16 more at least. May need more then that because you don't put sashing 
a round these blocks because the pattern is where the blocks meet as well as the middle.

I cut out a whole lot more to try to get ahead.  This amount may make 4 or 5!!!
It takes 4 blocks joined together to make a 11 1/2 inch block.....I cut out a bunch of paper templates and just cut them out with that.  The ruler is 25$ and i would rather buy 25$ worth of fabric.
Hubby and i eat this box in about 12 hours!! It was 'pot of gold' and it was good, all of them.. We have had to throw out some  that neither one of us could eat before . But he did good this time!!!
Of course it's not much more candy in it then a candy bar.  You mostly pay for the pretty box that will end up with sewing stuff inside it. I put them all to good use!!
Back to washing the dishes again.!!!! hahaha
He hates to wash dishes but he did it to show he love me.
Have a great sewing day friends and new follower, i love you every one!!
Quilt happy

Lovely blocks. I agree there are times that I would rather buy fabric than a tool.

It was a great choice to make the paper templates. Like most quilters, I have many rulers that I have used once or not at all.
My favorite thing about getting candy is using the box for sewing items. Glad you enjoyed the candy inside.
