STUDIO 180 - LEMOYNE STAR
OPTIONAL - CONSTELLATION LEMOYNE STAR   37" X 37"

Have you always wanted to make perfect Lemoyne Stars?


In this class, learn how to easily and accurately piece traditional Lemoyne Star blocks.  The block unites are strip pieced, and assembled without using any "Y" seams, pieced so that the blocks themselves are slightly oversized so at the end each can be trimmed to an exact size.  The Rapid Fire Lemoyne Tool used in class makes Stars ranging from 3" to 12".

Come to practice making Lemoyne stars as stand alone units or prepare and precut fabrioc to make this lovely wall hanging which showcases all the 10 sizes this one ruler can make.

At the end of the class, you will be comfortable making perfect Lemoyne Stars.  Maria will also show you 7 gorgeous Lemoyne Stars variations that can be made using the same ruler and the Studio 180 technique sheets.




SUPPLY LIST and PRE CUTTING INSTRUCTIONS

The sampler pictured above was made with a scrappy background of light creams, it also works well using just one fabric for your background, and is also fantastic with a dark background with bright stars.
