Now that you’ve become familiar with making Rapid Fire Lemoyne Stars, it’s time to have even more fun. Fussy cutting the star points can give you lots of really beautiful, interesting and unexpected looks. In this Technique Sheet, learn how to really use the blunt end of your ruler and get your creativity flowing with many variations for fussy cutting. Online video available (see below, also on YouTube).
Finally, a tool and technique that will allow any quilter to quickly, easily and accurately piece traditional Lemoyne Star blocks in 10 different sizes! The block units are strip pieced, 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. You can check out the process in our free online video demonstration. Deb’s step by step directions and Constellation bonus quilt project will have you turning Lemoyne Star blocks out by the dozens. A truly addicting ruler and process.
Don't forget to consider the Tucker Trimmer 3 for the final trimdown. It's the perfect companion ruler to your Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star - it'll easily handle the final trim for all 10 block sizes. Check it out here!
The third in the Tucker Trimmer series of rulers, this version of our Tucker Trimmer is used for any block or unit that is larger than a 6” finished block size. It has all of the sizes of the Tucker Trimmer 1 plus thirteen additional size options up to and including trimming blocks to 13” (that will finish to 12 ½” when sewn). I love to use this tool to trim down my Lemoyne Star blocks made with my Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool and any type of block that needs to be trimmed and squared to a specific size. A terrific tool with all the same benefits as the original Tucker Trimmer.
