Giant Hunter's Star Quilt Pattern
Digital file type(s): 1 PDF
The Giant Hunter's Star quilt pattern contains TWO patterns in one. The first, a Supergiant Hunter's Star, makes one large block quilt that measures 68" square. The second, a Giant Hunter's Star, uses four 32" blocks to make a 64" square throw quilt.
Both quilt tops can be made with just 4 yards of fabric: two yards of a focal fabric, and two yards of a complimentary fabric.
The Giant Hunter's star can also be made with 2 yards of a background fabric and 8 co-ordinating fat quarters.
Both patterns use 4 yards of fabric for the backing and 5/8 yards binding.
This pattern does NOT use half square triangles to make the blocks.

The inspiration for this quilt came from my original Hunter's Star pattern, on a day when I wanted to make a quilt top but had only a couple of hours to do it. I was able to cut and piece my Supergiant quilt top in less than two hours. It's a classic design made modern by the oversized block size, and makes a great gift.

This pattern was well-written and easy to follow. My goal was to make a queen-sized quilt, and this pattern is easily adjustable by simply adding more of the same blocks. I am very happy with the end result and recommend this pattern!
I love this pattern. I did the hunter star with the 2 3/4” squares and found it very tedious. This simplifies the process with the same great results in the look.
Update: I had a lovely conversation with HopefulHomemaker who helped me understand that Hunter's star pattern is traditionally pieced with multiple shapes (I had no idea)! I also wanted to be clear that the pattern is written very well with helpful diagrams. The extra information/details on block construction would have helped me plan better for construction time. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ This pattern looks great, but I really, REALLY, wish it disclosed that it's made using more than just half-square triangles. It's a different mindset when the pattern has diamonds and trapezoids as well. This means lots of bias sewing and more time so as to not stretch the fabric. We'll see how it goes, but I generally don't like to sew with these types of shapes.
This is one of my all time favorite patterns. I am making three quilts for family member’s Christmas across The country. So cool! Love it.
