templates for LeMoyne Star 6 inch

The LeMoyne Star 6-inch shape collection includes 45° diamonds, Quarter Square Triangles (QST), and squares. These 8-pointed stars are usually called LeMoyne Stars but there are other names. The bonus shapes (HST, half diamond, square) increase your design options.

April 2014 

I added one layout for the half diamond at the request of a long-time Inklingo quilter. If you downloaded this shape collection before then, you can log into your Inklingo account on the website to get the expanded version for free.

To see all of the sizes of diamonds, triangles, and squares, please see the Index of Shapes.

You have a choice of sizes including the 4.5-inch star in the FREE Diamond Triangle Square shape collection.

Perfect for Beginners

The shapes are a perfect introduction for beginners. Make 9-patches, Sawtooth Squares, Hour Glass, and other blocks with these shapes if you aren’t ready for an 8-pointed star.

Everything is easier with Inklingo—no measuring, no templates, no worries about straight grain, a line to cut on, a line to sew on—and there are detailed instructions for sewing and pressing on the All About Inklingo blog, so jump in! It’s fun!

The shapes are larger than the ones in the free Inklingo Shape Collection, but the ideas and worksheets in that downloadable shape collection are perfect for this too.

Love the lines. Quilt more!

Mary’s Inklingo Quilts

Connie Boulay quilts Connie B/CA is using Inklingo to sew blocks designed by Jennifer Chiaverini. I especially like the way she is not afraid to mix a few non-Inklingo shapes with the Inklingo ones.

I think I have a couple of these fabrics in my stash, but I never used them this well. Beautiful.

Connie wrote: “My sister, who never hand pieces, had no problem with this one because she could just sew on the line. We each did part of it (we were in a waiting room, and she forgot to bring something to work on), and it all fit together with no problem.”

Can you imagine two piecers working together and getting this level of precision? Impressive!

Love the lines. Quilt more!

    Inklingo is brilliant for Star applications. The points come together perfectly and the shapes are easy to piece by machine or by hand or a combination of both. The star collections give you lots of other shapes to do Lily blocks, multiple star applications, partial star blocks and so on. Stars/8 pointed diamonds are one of my favorite shapes and Inklingo has gotten me excited about quilting again.

    The LeMoyne Star is one of the most versatile shapes and the possibilities are endless. Linda has covered every printing arrangement that you would want and all the shapes are there for many different patterns such as the Peony block, Broken star and so on. Inklingo makes them all possible in minutes and you are sewing right away. So easy to have the points match whether by machine or by hand. Quilting has become exciting to me again.

    Stars are versatile and fun to piece..Inklingo makes it easy now to get perfect results every time whether by machine or by hand. I am excited about quilting again thanks to Linda’s brilliant ideas.

    Stars are one of my favorite things to make but until Inklingo they never quite came together in the center. Inklingo is so precise that my stars now come out great with perfect points. Inklingo is the best way to make. This collection is wonderful with lots of suggestions for quilts. I love Inklingo and I think you will too.

    I used this to make an 8-point star and it came out beautifully! No problem matching points and no knocked off points. An essential helping hand to the precision of quilting!
