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.
I added onne 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.
Use the combo layouts to save fabric and save time.

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!

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.

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