Scrap Basket Sunday - Week 6

34 Lemoyne star blocks finished! Only a few more to go.

 
I've been using the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star ruler from Studio 180 Design to make my blocks.  It is bewildering looking at first but I've found it very easy to use once I gave it try.
 
Now the originator, Deb Tucker, has added instructions for using the ruler to make more complicated looking versions of the Lemoyne star block, including a banded version and a striped version she calls Liberty Star. See photos below. 



Instructions and video demonstrations for both versions, plus a couple of other variations are at the Studio 180 website.   I plan to try one of these variations sometime.

Kim has been hosting Scrap Basket Sundays.  Visit her blog for links to the other scrappers and see what they are up to.

Since I've been following your progress, I saw the rapid fire ruler in a quilt shop, but I didn't get it. Now, I'm rethinking! I like the variations. Sigh, if only there weren't so many projects on my current list.

Your Lemoyne stars are coming along beautifully! Those advanced banded and striped versions look wonderful too!

The stars are beautiful and the ruler looks to be a great tool!

I've never seen the ruler, but I love what you've shown it can do. Your stars are coming along well--I can hardly wait to see them all!

These are so pretty! The banded and striped versions are really interesting.
