Spring Location: Tucker University - 1-601 Lemoyne Star



Volcanoes don't belong in the center of an eight-point star and they won't happen to you when you use the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool.  And, by the way, there will be no y-seams!  Be thoroughly stunned when you learn how to make a Lemoyne Star using a strip method.  You will be able to make blocks as small as 3" all the way to 12" with the same level of accuracy.



* Required tools: Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star and Tucker Trimmer III (if you have this Tucker Trimmer III tool, bring it.  If not it is available at Cupcake Quilts.
*Required Technique Sheet:  none
*Required Design Sheet:  Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star
NOTE:  the design sheet will be available for purchase on class days

Basic Quilting Supplies:
Rotary cutter with a sharp blade
Marking Pencil - I recommend the Sewline mechanical pencil or the micron pigma marker  size .01
Small cutting mat
Straight edge ruler approx. 6" x 12" - I really recommend the 8 1/2" x 24 as you will be cutting WOF  
Invisigrip

Fabric Requirements:
Fabrics will be cut during class.  Therefore, the fabric requirements are healthy amounts so that you can make your own design choices during class.

For course 1-601, we recommend the following yardage:

fabric requirements:

There should be a strong contrast between your star point fabric and your background fabric.   Preferably have two fabrics for your star points and two fabrics for your background.

(2) 2 1/2" strips WOF for the star points
(2) 3 3/4" strips WOF for the background

OR what I prefer - you can cut these prior to class if you are confident on your fabric choices.  If not, Cyn will help you choose. 

Set 1 for A block:
(1) 2 1/2" strip WOF for the star points for one A block
(1) 3 3/4" strip WOF for the background
