It seems pretty clear from your comments last time that you like getting a sneak peek!
We get sneakier and peekier today.
Then I have to get back to work, so this bit of fun doesn’t delay the day you can actually download Hunter’s Star and start printing on your fabric!
Ooops! First Things First
Before I go any further, I must address one important issue.
The glaze on Russ’s Apple Pie is 2 egg yolks mixed with 1 tablespoon of sugar. He brushes it on before it goes in the oven.
Whew. Now we can get back to Hunter’s Star.
3 Sizes of Hunter’s Star
The covers for the Inklingo website are ready.
There are 3 inch, 4.5 inch, and 6 inch units to make 6, 9, and 12 inch blocks.
Some of my quilt layouts use two sizes! Be still my heart!
(There were examples of Hunter’s Star Quilts yesterday.)
The images for the Inklingo website showing the shapes are prepared too.
There are 3 shapes in a Hunter’s Star block, but we added another one “for good measure.”
(Monkey thinks that is a pun because you don’t have to measure these odd sizes when you print the shapes on fabric.)
The square is an added bonus. It is used for some very cool design variations.
All of these shapes are versatile, especially the diamonds and triangles. They can be used for many designs other than Hunter’s Star.
Inklingo quilters love combo layouts—for good reason!
Combo layouts allow you to print different shapes at the same time. They use fabric very efficiently and make the printing go even faster than when you print the shapes separately.
There are 3 different Combos in each Hunter’s Star shape collection. The example above prints all of the shapes for two 4.5 inch units for a 9-inch Hunter’s Star block. (Fabric is 8.25 x 11.25.)
We think the Combos will make you happy whether your design uses 2 or 3 fabrics—or dozens of scraps!
(Of course, you can also print the shapes separately, as usual.)

You can enter your email address (right sidebar), so you will be the first to know when the Inklingo Hunter’s Star is ready for you to download. You can also subscribe to YouTube, to see our Inklingo movies.
Monkey says you should have enough info now to start thinking about your design.
For example, we googled Hunter’s Star and clicked on images. There are some fabulous Hunter’s Star Quilt designs to inspire you!
Your enthusiasm and your GREAT comments yesterday re-energize me to finish (Thank you!), so I am not writing individually in reply to everyone, okay? I am assuming that unless you asked a question, I should work on getting the shape collections finished instead.
The sooner I get back to work, the sooner these three shape collections will be ready for you, so that’s all for today.
Head down. Back to work. . .
