Workshop, One Tool Patterns (The Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star from Studio 180 Design), with Phyllis Fay at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church (7211 Oakland Dr / Portage) /Registration Required: Click here for printable form OR Click here for online registration and payment.

Learn how to use the Studio 180 Design tool, the Rapid Fire® Lemoyne Star (Philliis’ favorite!) to make perfect Leymoyne stars without Y-seams or having to cut several odd shapes. You will be making a 9″ block during the workshop. The purpose of this course is to learn something new and then use your new skills on a specific project. The purchase of your tool comes with a free pattern.
Here are some features of the Rapid Fire® Lemoyne Star tool:

  • Use one tool to make blocks in ten (10) different sizes.
  • Each block will be made slightly oversized and then trimmed to exact precision so that all points are preserved!
  • Both Left- and Right-handed instructions will be provided.
  • There are 5 different variations of the Lemoyne star available; we will be doing a basic Lemoyne star during the workshop.

Rapid Fire® Lemoyne Star $40.50 plus tax
Fabric Requirements: (for 1 block—bring additional fabrics if you are a fast piecer)
