Maureen will provide patterns for all blocks. You will work on the Lemoyne Star first. Once you learn how to inset a seam, the main difference in patterns will be sequence and pressing directions. Some blocks use a square inset and some use a triangle inset. The Lemoyne Star requires both. Maureen will cover both the square and the triangle inset seam.
