Wowzah! Majesty Lemoyne is Clue #8
Wowzah! Majesty Lemoyne is Clue #8! This is one of the tougher blocks, but totally worth it!
There are going to be a few areas that you really need to be careful; fabric selection, fabric placement, accurate strip cutting, good 1/4" seam and safe pressing. All of these are critical for this block.
Let's start with Fabric Selection:
If you are selecting your own fabric, I'd highly recommend selecting that fabrics that are almost tone-on-tone but with some texture.
You will want to think through the placement as well. I went back an forth one which fabric I wanted to use where. You have to make the decision before you cut, since they are different sizes based on their placement.
I highly recommend taking your time to cut them properly, with your best cutting skills. Additionally, I think you should label them, with pins, or stickies.
Make sure to check the strips when you have them sewn and pressed to make sure they are the proper width.
From here on, you are going through the normal Lemoyne Star steps, but you have to be careful.
Check to make sure everything is straight before sub cutting.
You are going to treat the strip sets the same way you treat the single strips through the setting the angle, and your first and second cuts.
Then prepare to stitch.
