Rapid Fire Hunters Star

bw1

This is my guild Black and White Challenge entry for our quilt show in April.  Members were given 3 black and white print fat quarters as well as were asked to pick a marker out of a bag without looking.  The marker colour is our accent colour to add to the quilt.  We could also add solid black, solid white and more black and white print fabrics.   Here is the marker I picked and was happy to have found fabric that matched really well.

There was no size requirements for this challenge so I only made a small wall hanging that is 36” x 36”.  I used the Rapid Fire Hunters Star ruler to cut out the pieces and was really impressed with how it worked.

I stitched in the ditch then added the feather motifs.  I didn’t quilt anything in the black and white print fabrics as the prints are quite bold.  Used white So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

We had about 40 members buy kits for this challenge and I have seen a lot of them being worked on at our retreats and UFO days, even a few done and shown at Show and Tell.  I’m looking forward to seeing them all together at the show, it will be a great display!

  4. Wow! Beautiful quilt! The turquoise really makes a statement. Did you use the petite Rapid Fire Hunter's Star ruler or the large size?
