More Stars

 You see before you 92 Lemoyne Stars- (80)- 4" and (12)- 12"
that were made useing the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star ruler, which makes this task VERY easy.
Angela from Quilts With a Heart had the annual summer retreat at the
 Cimarron Ranch in Marble Falls,Texas.
What fun we had sewing, laughing, eating and staying up too late.
Many, many stars were made during the weekend.... 
You could possibly be seeing more of them from me in other projects.
  I love them !
I got some great fabric in the quilt shop, there on the ranch..
I had to walk through it on my way to bed every night  morning...
Boy oh boy, that was just terrible  ;0)  wink

 Isn't this sweet ! Kim Diehl's, Vintage Farmhouse.

 I found this pretty little bunch of fat quarters all tied up in twine, Shenandoah Valley by Nancy Gere
Why I bought purple..... not a clue ! BuT I LIKE it !

And Mill Brook Series Circa 1852 by Howard Marcus
I bought this with the Farmers Wife blocks in mind.

We'll be back to blog hopping soon....I have certainly missed the hops. 
I'm excited to see what everyone has made ! ...How about you ?
Have a very blessed day today.

Mmmmm, what lovely fabric, and I think you've got a skyful of stars going on there. How cool is that! Sounds like you had a blast, nicely energized for the start of the hops. Yay!

Wow that is a lot of stars. I have that ruler. I just haven't made anything with it yet. I taught my mom how to make stars with it and she was the queen of the turning 20 quilts all squares and rectangles.

Vickie, I Love your Stars! and such pretty fabric you found! I have found collections of Purple and just drool over them, but I just don't know at the time I see them what I would do with them either. Thanks for sharing your ruler I am going to search it out!!
Huggs, Nancy

Oh, I would have SO loved to have taken that class! The Lemoyne Star is one of my favorite patterns. Your stars are lovely - and you made 92?! I am smitten with the fabric you selected as well - good thing I don't live closer to that shop!
