Max, what do you mean "stay out of trouble"?   Isn't that what most of us are on line here for?  That we got ourself in trouble and want to share it or get advise about it.   Stay out of trouble, you say?-----No way.  Lol     Ginny

Eva are you using nice new fabric with perfectly planned colors or are you using scraps like I am.  will you be hand quilting it?  I just hope my hall wall will be big enough to hold all my arcs when i get them all sewn.  I'm not certain how well I can put all my pieces to gether when I'm done it may be a major headache. .  someone has a beautiful one on here somewhere.  I hope I can find it again.

Mary, I've never made a Lemoyne Star but would like to. I've been looking online and see there is a technique called the Rapid Fire LeMoyne Star.  But it needs a specialized ruler. 

Does anyone have any suggestions for making one that doesn't use the ruler? For example, here is a block from EQ7.  Love EQ but it doesn't give piecing instructions. I can print the templates but that doesn't help me in constructing the block.

Judy, there are two ways to get this effect without the special ruler.  One is to shorten the look and just do this in half square triangles.  The other is to use an regular rotary cutting ruler and the 30 or 60 degree lines (I believe this will work).  or print out the picture and make a little template.  It looks to me like the lighter purple could be done as solid pieces as well. 

Good luck.  Maggie.

Judy,  looking at this longer, you can use strips and the 45degree line on your ruler (or fold a piece of paper to get that angle).

I don't have a suggestion for without the ruler, but can totally recommend any of Deb Hunter's rulers.  She also has good free tutorials on her web site.   The LeMoyne Star and Hunter Star rulers helped make very accurate blocks.  www.studio180design.net/videos/

Thanks MaggieNae.  I do have the templates from EQ7. My problem is putting them together without having to do the dreaded Y seams. Deb Tucker has a Rapid Fire method but it requires her ruler. I watched her video and it does make making the star look fairly easy. Just cut strips, sew them together and use her ruler for cutting. No Y seams. But I'm trying to avoid yet another ruler that I rarely use.

I could make the star and simply applique it down to a backing. Kind of the cowards way out. LOL

Agnes:
Now, when needed this same space can accommodate my design board. When not in use it stores easily, rod in the closet and flannel tablecloth on shelf. Currently it is displaying the leftover blocks from my Flower Windows quilt.

Pretty quilts Agnes. I also like what you have on the design wall.

Y-seams really aren't that difficult, Judy.

But they are tedious and not fun..... Plus it requires me to be careful! LOL OK Kris, I'll make one block using the Y seam method, see how it goes.
