QUILT BLOCK OF THE MONTH- MARCH
SAWTOOTH STAR QUILT BLOCK
Welcome Quilter’s! I am so excited to be doing the Block of the Month this year. Each month we we’ll be making a quilt block that will be put into a quilt sampler at the end of the year. There will be 12 blocks in total and some will be easy and some will be difficult. I will teach you how to make each one via video instruction. Make sure that you are following me on YouTube and are Subscribed so that you can be notified each time I upload a new video.
I am using a fat quarter bundle that I have had laying around for a couple of years. You can use whatever you have in your stash. I recommend having a half yard of each fabric color so that you have enough fabric on hand and in case you make an error, you will still be able to make the block. It is always better to have more fabric on hand than to not. Also, I recommend having a variety of lights, darks and mediums.
About the Quilt Block:
This month we are making the Sawtooth Star Quilt Pattern. You can make several designs and variations with the Star Pattern.
Below is a photo of the Sawtooth Star Quilt Block that I made for our sampler quilt.
This has always been one of my favorite patterns and I am so excited to be putting it into our sampler quilt. I would like for you to note that the measurements I will be giving you are for a 10” block. Please DO NOT be alarmed by that as we will be doing doing a variation of things with your Sampler and the measurements are smaller on purpose and I have a reason for it. I just want to give you that heads up because once you finish the block you are going to visibly notice that it is smaller than the others that we have made so far.
Fabric Measurements for Cutting:
1- 5 1/2” Square
4- 3” Squares (Corners) I suggest a darker fabric
4- 3 1/2” Squares (These are for the 1/2 Square Triangles) Dark Color
4- 3 1/2” Squares (These are for the 1/2 Square Triangles) Light Color
That is all you need for cutting. :). Remember, it will finish at 10” not 12”. I hope you enjoy making this block as much as I did. It really was a lot of fun! Happy Quilting!
