Rapid-Fire Hunter's Star Workshop
with Marilyn Wimmergren,  October 2012

Back to Workshops Index

Marilyn Wimmergren introduced us to a totally new way to construct Hunterís Star quilts created by Deb Tucker.  
Cut some simple strips, do a little chain piecing, and you can create this beautiful quilt, too!  Fabrics are easy to select because you only need to choose one light and one dark.  Come learn the basic technique then go on to create other quilts with optional colorways.  

Marilyn patiently shows Vivian how to trim the trapezoids
