    Lemoyne Star and Sunflower

    They have nothing to do with each other but thought I would show you the wall hanging that was included with the Lemoyne star ruler. I finished it up this afternoon and wouldn't have had a problem if my machine didn't have the hickups.

    The second picture is something I found in my UFO when cleaning this spring. It is a sunflower that I saw on HGTV many years ago. I printed some of it out but only have page 4 and 5 of the directions. It was from HGTV article 3302-4225965.

    I like the colors you chose for the star quilt. You did a great job. The sunflower one looks nice too. Here is a link to a video of a sunflower pattern that looks similar: http://www.hgtv.com/video/sunflower-...deo/index.html. Could it be the same?

    pinkcastle,
    That website was exactly the one that I used so long ago. I looked at it again and I remember how to do the first part. Do you know how I would be able to see the rest of the video to see how she finishes it up? I might like to try this again.

    Love your star quilt colors (they are my colors). I have not seen a sun flower pattern like yours. It is interesting and unusual. Was it hard to make?

    I love those colors/fabrics in your stars, too! That's a beautiful quilt! And being from KS, you KNOW I love the sunflower! What are you going to use it for? Please post again when you decide, OK?

    I have the Lemoyne Star ruler, too, and I LOVE it! I've done some table runners and a wall hanging , though not the one that comes with the ruler. I have all of Deb Tucker's rulers, and I like them because I do so much better with her " trim down" method. It's so much more accurate for me to make a square and trim it down. I know some quilters would think that's wasteful, or too time intensive, but it works for me.

    Your "Sunflower" is a Jennie Rayment pattern. Love it. I did this as a poinsettia for a Christmas quilt. Jennie's e-mail is: [email protected] and her website is: www:jennierayment.com. If you are ever lucky enough be be anywhere close to where she is teaching or giving a trunk show - don't miss it. She is a fantastic and funny teacher/speaker.

    You don't have much to do to finish your sunflower. You appear to have already tacked the petal close to the center. Next is to go up a little way and fold towards the center the outside part of the petal and tack it down. Then you need to applique the entire flower onto your background, add borders if you choose to, sandwich, quilt, and bind. That's it.
