Lemoyne Star

I’ve been debating a new project with this die, so I took a little time out from the leader/ender project to give it a go.

My thought was to use repro 30s fabrics for the Star points and different solids for the background.

I decided to make a block to try it out. There are no set in seams with this block. You make 4 of each triangle as shown below.

Sew 4 units like this.

Rotate and sew together to form the Star.

Very easy. But I could have had my center come together better if I had paid more attention to pressing.

It’s okay, but I’m not in love with it. Maybe because the version in my mind was scrappier. It will get set aside for now.

Have a great day!
