Sawtooth Stars Are Great for This Project!
Small quilt blocks are perfect for coasters, whether you’re starting from scratch or with orphan blocks. In this case, cute Sawtooth Star blocks are made up in fun fabrics for a charming set of summer coasters or mug rugs.
This block gives you a chance to show off an interesting motif in the center, such as the campers used here (from the I’d Rather be Glamping fabric line, available here while supplies last).
It’s easy to imagine coasters made for any season and with many different color themes and fabric styles.
In fact, this is a great project for precious scraps from fabrics you love. Have fun going through your stash as you design your own version.
Diary of a Quilter provides a tutorial created by Stephanie from Swoodson Says. While it’s specifically for Sawtooth Star blocks, it will also work with any small block.
First, you’ll need instructions for the 5″ Sawtooth Star block from Diary of a Quilter. You’ll find those here.
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!
