Rapid Fire Hunter's Star Class

Update ...

So another quilting class is finished. I want to thank all the ladies who took the Rapid Fire Hunter's Star class with Deb and I. We appreciate all we learned from you, but we REALLY appreciate you putting up with our irreverence and silliness. Kim Morrison (our instructor) was fabulous and helped us create some lovely quilt tops. Thank you to Along Came Quilting for holding the class.

Today, I feature the tops from that class for your enjoyment. Pardon the fuzzy pictures. I forgot my camera and had to use my phone. (A dunking in the toilet and tub have caused spotting inside the lens.) Sadly, I did not get pictures of all the quilts under production. One classmate's quilt didn't make the wall. She was working with shades of navy and it promised to be very elegant.
My finished quilt.
The binding is machine sewn to the front, but as yet is not
hand sewn down on the back.
The crazy back of my quilt.
I wanted to use up some of the scraps.
(I have four big bins of blue scraps already.)
 I like the way the back resembles a modern art painting.

The small top made with my left over blocks.
I like the star points jutting into the border.
Next time I will use a variety of fabrics for the extra
star points.

Love the pattern here. It is just waiting for borders.

Two different border options under consideration.
I think the layered borders will be incredible with
mitered corners.

A layout variation.

Elegance from only two fabrics.

I like the diagonal effect on this one.
It will have another border when complete.

I like how the flying geese print flows around the quilt.
I need to practise mitering corners!
Thank you for letting me post pictures of your work.

Hope you enjoyed the show.
