I’ve always like Lemoyne stars, but I never liked having to cut the diamonds to make them. So when I found a template to make them, the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star Template, I had to buy it. Of course, my obsessions with gadgets and rulers helped me decide, too.
I found it pretty easy to use, and set out to make one of every size. I didn’t quite get there. I made them in the following sizes: 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7 and 6 inch sizes. Then I put them together in a top with a “scattered” look. I am considering adding a border of small half star points–kind of like a crown all around. I used a variety of reds and backgrounds for the project, making no two stars alike.
I liked the accuracy of the ruler and even used the fussy cut end–not to fussy cut, but instead, to use up scraps! Tell me what you think!
