LeMoyne Star Instructions
After cutting the fabric pieces for this block and cutting the eight foundation pieces apart, set a fabric piece #1 for Part A with the wrong side facing up.

Set the foundation Part A on top of the fabric as shown.  When the foundation fabric is in this position, you should be able to read the printing on the foundation fabric.  You want to make sure that the fabric edge extends about 1/4" past the line between space #1 and #2.  You also want to make sure that it covers all of space #1 to at least the broken line.

Pin the foundation and fabric together to hold in place.
Turn the foundation unit over so the right side of fabric #1 is facing up.

Set fabric piece #2 even with the edge of fabric piece #1 where it extends the 1/4" past the line underneath.

Be sure to set the fabric so the right top corner of the fabric piece #2 is even with the broken line on the right so that after it is sewn and flipped open, it will cover all of space #2.

You can pin the fabrics to the foundation if you so desire to hold them in place.
Turn the foundation unit over so the foundation fabric is facing up.  Stitch on the line between space #1 and #2.

Remember to use a regular stitch length.  You do not need to backstitch. 
Turn the foundation unit over so the fabrics are facing up.  Open fabric piece #2 and press.  It is important to press the seams nice and flat. 
Turn the foundation unit over so the foundation fabric is facing up.

Set a straight edge even with the line between space #2 and #3 as shown.
Fold the foundation fabric back over the straight edge.
Snugly fit an Add-A-Quarter ruler against the straight edge.

If you do not have an Add-A-Quarter ruler, you can use an acrylic ruler, lining up the 1/4" line even with the edge of the fold of the foundation where it folds back over the straight edge.  Be careful that it does not slip.
Use the rotary cutter to trim away the excess fabric.  This will give you a nice 1/4" seam allowance for placing the next piece.
Turn the foundation unit over so the right side of the fabrics are facing up.

Set a fabric piece #3 even with this just-trimmed edge, right sides together.

Set a Part A and Part B together with the right sides facing each other.  Match the seam in the center and pin.  Match the end points and pin.  Stitch on the solid line.

Repeat to join the other Part A and Part B's to make four sets.

Press the seams open.


Join two units to make a half unit.  Press the seams open.

Repeat to make the other half.
Join the two halves together, matching the center seams and the seams on the sides.  Stitch on the solid line.

Press all seams open.
Trim any "dog ears" and your block is done.  It should measure 6 1/2" square.

These make great pot holders or single framed artwork.
