Lemoyne Star at QBL

     The three day class with Victoria Findlay Wolfe held lots of challenges and new techniques such as Y seams.
    I started with having to make fabric. Some people had quilt tops they hated and cut them up. Some had orphan blocks. I sewed 6" squares and 6" x 12" rectangles together to make it big enough to cut out the star pattern.

The initial blocks
The cut out shapes, these are extra for now
Assembly started with settings, polka dot added to settings
Trial border with black against star
Trial border with red against star
Laying out the HSTs
Border laid on floor with numbers to match up
All sewn, need backing now but what?

Wow, you really relaxed and had a good time on this one. I like the way the triangles are turned on the edge and the border is great. Choose your backing fabric to match the thread color you are going to use on top.
