The Sawtooth Star Quilt Block

grouping of 4 sawtooth star quilt blocks

The Sawtooth Star quilt block is another quilt block that you will make again and again. It has many variations.  Some of the variations put another block in the center square, and others build the star out bigger or break up the patches in other ways.

the grids of the Sawtooth Star Quilt BlockThis Sawtooth Star is a 4-patch quilt block, further divided into 16 patches. The center block is composed of 4 of the 16 patches.  Your patch size will determine the size of the block.  A 2-inch finished patch will make the block 8 inches finished.

The points on each side of the Sawtooth quilt block are usually made from the flying geese quilt block, as opposed to making them from half square triangles.

Follow the directions on the flying geese  page to make the four units, one for each side,  with the star points.  Cut your center square to cover 2 patch units across and 2 patch units down, and cut the single patches. 

When you sew the block together, be sure and press the flying geese units toward the center to reduce bulk.

Here are are few blocks done in different styles, from feminine and vintage, to a more light and playful design.  Notice how the blocks with pattern have more personality.
