Pattern Description:

When I got ready to make my first quilt, I knew I wanted to make a Lemoyne Star. I had no idea it was a difficult pattern and I'd had no quilting lessons so I just dug in! I sketched a block and figured out what pieces I would need. Along the way, I realized I could do this with strips of any size. I suggest a jelly roll for this one but you could actually cut full-length strips in any width you desire. It will, of course, change the size of the block. But that's what I love about this pattern! You can make it virtually any size you want depending on the size of the strips. You can make one block and add setting squares (as I did for my table topper) or 12 blocks for a nice sized lap quilt. You can make it scrappy with each star point in a different fabric, or planned with any combination you like! I hope you enjoy the flexibility of this design as much as I have.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Your choice depending on how many blocks you make!

Materials:

  • Sewing machine and accompanying supplies
  • Rotary cutter and a 6" x 12" ruler
  • Jelly roll strips for the stars and fat quarters for the backgrouds

You Will Also Need:

  • Since I drafted this originally, Clover has come out with a "Trace 'n Create Quilt Template (Lone Star Collection". It would've been handy for me!

I just didn't realize the value of them as each new ...
