Inspired by the pattern Scrappy Hunter's Star in the book A Baker's Dozen. I was intrigued with the idea presented n the book that you could make the hunters star block from a jelly roll and a layer cake without foundation piecing. I tried it, and it work very well. I added another row, and what I call my stained glass border treatment.

Hunter's Star is on my bucket list!  You have made it seem like a doable project!  I love your colors and that you don't have to use foundation piecing.

Thanks for all the kind comments. I see on amazon.com that there are two books now called A Bakers Dozen. It is the book from The Patchwork Patch. You will see their version of the quilt on the front cover. It has instructions on how to make the quilt from a jellyroll and a layer cake. If you want to replicate my stain glass border treatment the inner most white border finishes at 1", the spacers between the colored peices finish at 1", the color peices in border 2 proceeding outwards finish at 2" x 6.5" (cut down from the 7" left over peice of the layer cake, the next white border out finshes at 1.25", the colored peices in the next border out finish at 2.25" x 9.5" (cut down from the 10" left over peice of the layer cake), and the final white outer border finishes at 1.5". Happy quilting.
