The Sawtooth Star block is a very traditional quilt block that appears often in quilt history books, including in a simple color palette such as this.
I've been focused on making more Sawtooth Star blocks this week, and it was a task that took longer than anticipated. The trickiest part of the block is piecing accurate Flying Geese Units, with each block requiring 4 such units. I ended up making 25 Sawtooth Star Blocks which requilred 100 Flying Geese Units as well as persistence!
And ... I am really liking how this quilt top has turned out. I've joined the blocks together with a relatively wide sashing which spaces out the blocks and balances the colors.
This quilt top is in need of a border. I am down to the last few scraps of the ocean green solid fabric so that is not an option. So I am thinking yellow. A yellow border. We'll see.
As always, thank you for stopping by,Rita
