{Not Quite a Sawtooth Star Block} Tutorial

Not Quite a Sawtooth Star

This month is our last month in the Be Purposeful Bee and it is my mom’s turn to be the quilter and block/fabric picker-outer.

Almost Sawtooth

After much debate, she has settled on having our quilter’s make an “almost” Sawtooth Star Block. ┬áThe quilt block is assembled in the same manner as a traditional Sawtooth star however the star points do not go out to the edge as in the traditional block.

It’s a fun, quick little block to make and because it’s got a built in border the star really becomes the focal point of the block.

Have a happy sewing day!

    Cute! And I’m just loving that checkerboard cornerstone border you’re doing. I usually avoid sashing like the plague but now I’m starting to like it because of this particular style. Thanks!

    I’m so glad you contributed to SMS today. I leapt over to your blog and now you’re in my morning list of favorites to share my coffee with each day. In the “queue” of my quilting projects is a Crown Royal quilt. A co-worker asked me to do it and for months I’ve had a large reusable shopping bag of purple flannel bags under the sewing table. I knew I wanted something like this star but not real sure how to go about it. I needed a block to show off the Crown Royal logo in the center and I found a perfect gold batik to match the embroidery but I wasn’t sure about how to put it all together. This block gives me the solution! I’ll find a dark purple batik for the star points and use the gold batik for the background. Yay! Thank you!
