What's Up - 7/8/13

Today and probably the rest of the month will be my tiny Lemoyne stars up on my wall. This is one of my Git-R-Done for this month

They are small


Finish size will be 3 inches.


They are not that hard because I am using Deb Tucker's Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star Tool.
Here is a link to a YOUTube video of this tool
Once you try this you realize how easy it is to do such a difficult block.


Neat thing about it is that you use strips instead of templete of diamonds and squares. And there is no Y-seams.


Which is a good thing because I want to make a reproduction of this antique quilt. Now my stars will be 3" but on this antique quilt which was probably sewn by hand, the stars if I remember correctly were around 2 or 2 1/2 finished stars and there are 275 stars.
Now see why I'm loving this tool.

Now an update on my Love Entwined 


I have the compass made and need to add the inter center circle plus the outside ring. The fabric in the background will be the ring and I'm auditioning colors for the small circles that go on the ring, 32 of them. Not sure if I'll go with blue (which is my favorite color) or another color. I'll stare and play with it for day or two.

  2. I have used the Rapid Fire Hunters Star ruler and loved it. I'll have to check this one out. Your compass is beautiful and I can't wait to see what you choose to go with it.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
