This fantastic quilt is made using a collection of forty 2½” strips. It’s the perfect project for all those Jelly Rolls you’ve collected! With an additional light, medium and dark fabric, you’ll have all the fabric you need to make this beauty. All these difficult looking blocks and border triangles are made with Deb’s streamlined strip piecing techniques and foolproof precision trimming with her Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool. It’s much simpler to make than you might imagine. Give this stunning quilt a try and you’ll be thrilled at how easily it goes together!
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.
This is a knockout quilt well worth the effort. Banded Lemoyne Stars alternate with simple chain blocks to give the center of this quilt a checkerboard effect. More stars are clustered in the corners of the borders to add extra polish. This quilt is certain to be a prized possession for any lucky recipient.
This difficult looking pattern is a cinch using the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool and construction process. The units are strip pieced and assembled with no “Y” seams. Pieced units are trimmed for high precision so matching seams and keeping points becomes a snap! A fast and easy project with the right tool!
