Sue Reigh and Dianne Caudell are returning for another fun weekend of Quilting, Friendship and Fellowship. The Quilt pattern for this retreat is Hunter’s Star, which gets its name for the Star block and the 4 patch block that, when combined, form an Arrowhead. Careful placement of the star corners and the colored parts of the four patch will form arrowheads in the colors as well as the arrowhead made with the light background. If a more random and less controlled approach is preferred then only the light colored background will form an arrowhead. The possibilities are endless. You can use as many colors as you want with a lighter background color or create a more striking two color design.
