A class in Stars

     Over 3 years ago, I booked the teacher, Debbie Thomas- a cerified Studio 180 instructor, to teach at our guild. I chose the Tucker Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star, because I thought the stars could be used in a myriad of ways in all kinds of sizes instead of a one project workshop. Before the workshop, we had to cut all the strips. There were a lot of strips in lots of sizes. We had strips for stars 3" through 12". There was plenty to do in the all day workshop that there is no time to cut strips. Debbie was an excellent teacher and helped us all get those stars made.
All packed up

I highly recommend this tool if you want exact star points easily with strip and chain piecing and NO paper piecing. These are the 3", 6" and 12" stars. Love the colors, love the batik I chose. Now to finish all the other strips. I even bought a sheet on how to fussy cut the stars.
Our guild class

Deb Tucker lives in the next town over from me. One of her certified instructors belongs to our Guild. Everyone who has taken that class swears by the method!

Those are pretty stars. I have a Deb Tucker trimmer ruler, but I've never used it. I'd like to learn how to make the Lemoyne Stars one day.
