Irondequoit Quilt Club met last night. The usual agenda took place - Pledge of Allegiance, announcements, upcoming club quilt show information, Wounded Warrior quilts information, fat quarter exchange, raffle and of course show and tell. We were also treated to a wonderful presentation by quilt club member Deb Thomas.
Deb's presentation was all about rapid fire tools made by Deb Tucker. She highlighted two rulers in particular, the Hunter's Star and the Lemoyne Star.
This pattern is call SueNami and was designed by a member of Deb Tucker's family, her sister-in-law Sue Tucker. The bases of this quilt pattern uses the Hunter Star ruler and the Wing Clipper I ruler.

Merrilee and Nick look at the similarities between using the larger Hunter Star ruler and the smaller Hunter Star ruler. Both are dramatic.

Next Deb spoke about the Lemoyne Star ruler and showed a few samples of quilts made with it. This quilt has all the different size stars that you can make with the ruler.

The last quilt that Deb showed was Pop Stars. This quilt is made using 40 - 2 1/2" wide strips, with the addition of a light, a medium and a dark fabric. This quilt as well as the other quilts shown are all made using a strip piecing method with no y-seams. How cool is that?

Until next time…
Happy Quilting, Kathy
