Here is a new star for me, the Hunter Star. A friend made a whole quilt of this block, and I liked the star, so I've written up my own directions for it. I hope you'll like this star for your star sampler.
Check your measurements very carefully. Each block should measure 12 1/2 inches when it is finished. Accuracy from beginning to end will assure that your blocks come out perfectly. Measure carefully, sew carefully, and you will have a perfect block.
from all three fabrics cut four 3 7/8 inch squares
from your background cut four 3 1/2 inch squares
This block is made up of a lot of diagonal half squares. (You can find directions with diagrams for making diagonal half squares
by following this link. .)

and assemble your Hunter Star as shown above.
Your finished star should measure 12 1/2 inches.
