Lemoyne Stars

I realized I've never blogged about my 4" Lemoyne Stars. It's been a UFO so long I'm not sure when I started it. It must be over 12 years ago because my sons were still in HS.

I pulled it out the other day to show the mini group ladies and that led to talking about piecing 8 pointed stars without 'Y' seams. I can sew a Y seam if I have to but it's not my favorite thing.

 I call it Fruit Basket

At the next mini group meeting, Wilma showed us a new technique called Rapid Fire Lemoyne Stars. Now I'm sewing stars easily and accurately. Watch the video, it's amazing.

I'm back in action; another UFO comes out of deep hibernation. Thank you Wilma!
