Once again this was a ruler I had to learn how to use it BEFORE I fell in love with it! At a glance it is not obvious as to how it can make this star turn out so perfect. But once you get to know Deb Tucker of Studio 180 Design the designer of this ruler, you will also realize why she uses the phrase “RAPID FIRE” with her rulers. It is because her technique is FAST, FUN and PERFECT every time you use it!

The Lemoyne Star ruler can cut stars as small as 3″ up to 12″. I noticed that my 3″ star turned out more perfect than my 9″ star shown below. Might be because that was my second try! As you can see I was very impressed!

Lemoyne Star step by step directions

If you are curious where the name “Lemoyne Star” originated from, you first learn it is a traditional quilt design published somewhere in the early 1900’s. This star is known to have eight points using 45 degree diamonds as the star points. The only record I could find for where “Lemoyne” came from was that there were two LeMoyne brothers who helped settle Louisiana in 1699.
