Gail Heller, certified Instructor with Deb Tucker and Studio 180 Designs will guide us through a monthly journey to learn to create all the various Lemoyne Star Designs using the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star Ruler. Each month we will create 2 different 12” blocks and the last class they will be put together to create the Loco for Lemoyne Stars Quilt, which finishes at 72” x 72”. You aren’t required to make the quilt, you can create the blocks every month and make them into table runners, placemats, totes whatever your heart desires.
