Lotsa Lemoynes!

I taught another Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star Ruler class again this week and I remembered to take a few photos....
There were a couple stars made in patriotic colors......

perfect for Lemoyne Stars.

Two gals were working on this Laura Ingalls Wilder quilt using the new Little House on the Prairie fabrics from Andover. They decided to use their Lemoyne Stars from the class to replace one of the blocks in the quilt. They get their fabrics by mail each month from a shop in New Ulm, MN.

These are my Clue Four blocks from the ThimbleCreek mystery
I had a "V8" revelation about half way through sewing these--
Wow! I could have used the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star ruler....duh!!

Last Friday's Temecula Circa 2016 blocks--new ones posted today!!

And another week of 365 blocks--I used up some stray half square triangles to fill my basket block.
The instructions come through to my email about 8 am every morning. Some days I make the block right away, but occasionally I end up "collecting" the patterns and make 3 or 4 at a time . I'm still pretty excited about this project--no "quilt fatigue" yet on this project! 
I have more to show, but it will have to wait for another day--happy sewing!!


  1. Lots of lovely LeMoyne stars (couldn't resist the alliteration).
    Those tiny "T"s are so cute.
    I am loving your blue and brown blocks for the 365 challenge. So tempted to join in--I do download the patterns. But I am staying strong this year--so far. : )

  2. Beautiful blocks Karen! I love them all! Hope you have a lovely weekend! Christine x

  3. Beautiful Lemoyne--going to make a beautiful quilt

  4. Always interesting to see all the blocks you have made. I have read so much about the rapid fire ruler and never have purchased one. Maybe I should put that on a wish list.

  5. I had to look twice to see if you had used the rapid fire ruler for the Thimble Creek BOM. Oh well. Your students did a great job and now have another technique available. You've been busy again keeping up with all the wonderful sew alongs. Yea!

  6. I love seeing the different fabrics used in these lovely LeMoynes.I love the rich browns and blues you are using in your 365 blocks.

  7. I just LOVE your Lemoyne stars. I do have the Rapid fire ruler now. I am going to have to move this up to the top of my "must make" list. 😍

  8. You must be getting lots of colour ccombo ideas from each of the classes. They look great.

  9. I love your Thimblecreek mystery blocks - cool background fabrics :0) I sure would like to take your Rapid fire LeMoyne star class - the star blocks are wonderful. Your 365 blocks look great- I love that you are keeping up with it - Im so impressed!
