3403: Sharing Traditions


To Y-seam or not to Y-seam? How to construct a LeMoyne Star quilt block can be a matter of choice. Sara Gallegos shows you the classic set-in construction and a simplified, triangle-based technique that eliminates the Y-seam.


The original table runner, called Cosmic Stars, was designed by Deborah Kalenty, and appeared in Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting July/August 2015 which is also featured in the 3400 series pattern eBooklet. Sara selected Deborah’s pattern in order to showcase different techniques for constructing Y-seams (also called “in-set seams”). The fabric she used was from Silk Road Fusion collection by Art Gallery Fabrics.


The original design for this project is called Cosmic Stars and is by Deborah Kalenty.
