This Hunter's Star block is made with squares and half square triangles and uses 2 fabrics. To do the calculations, javascript must be enabled. While every effort is made to be sure of accuracy, I am unable to test every variation. Before you cut up large amounts of fabric, cut and sew a test block or two. If you find any errors, please email me at "jeannethro2 at yahoo dot com".
