Rapid Fire® Lemoyne Star

Make your Lemoyne stars twinkle by using the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool from Studio 180 Design. Stop cutting out odd shapes with angles that never quite match up and eliminate those bulky center spots where multiple seams intersect. You will be able to make a block as small as 3” with the same precision as a 12” block.
