Simplified Construction Uses a No-Waste Method!
Sawtooth Star blocks (or eight-pointed stars) are used in so many quilt patterns and they’re extremely versatile. Depending on how many fabrics are used, and how they’re arranged, the blocks can take on several looks.
The blocks are simple to make but Amy Smart from Diary of a Quilter has made them even simpler. She uses Flying Geese units for the star points and makes four at a time with a no-waste method.
Whether you’re making Sawtooth Star blocks or simply need Flying Geese units for something else, be sure to give this technique a try.
Amy also provides two charts for blocks in various sizes. One is for Flying Geese units and the other is for Sawtooth Star blocks from 4″ to 20″ square.
You’ll find them both in her tutorial, linked to below.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
