Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star

I finally had some time yesterday to play with the new Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star Ruler by Deb Tucker of Studio 180. How fun! Made a 4" Lemoyne Star that turned out perfectly. The ruler makes stars in 10 sizes ranging from 3" up to 12". Pieces are cut oversized and then trimmed. Blocks are made with split corners--so no Y-seams! I made a demo board to show the steps. The instructions with the ruler are great. I plan to make the wallhanging that comes with the ruler. It has all 10 sizes of stars in it and is really fun. I will be demonstrating the Deb Tucker rulers at the upcoming Minnesota Quilters Show in St. Paul. We also have a demo day coming up at the shop on Wednesday, June 8th. It will run from 1:00-4:00. I'll be showing lots of the new things we picked up at Spring Market.

I love this new method, no more 'y' seams. Your demo board is great! I've referred to it a few times. Thanks!
