Now your inner star is done. Wasn’t that sooooo much easier than last week?
There are 4 flying geese units in this block. To make them, cut (4) 3.5×6.5″ rectangles from background fabric and (8) 3.5″ squares for star points. Follow flying geese directions from this post. You will also need (4) 3.5″ squares for your corners in background fabric as well.
Layout your block like the picture above. Note the direction of all the flying geese that make the sawtooth stars points.
Time to Sew
Sew each row together using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Then press. I pressed my 1st and 3rd row to the outside of the block, and my center row to the center of my block.
I know this block is much simpler than last week, but I just loooooovvve this one! Should measure 12.5″ at this point. Repeat for your second block.
If you are new to quilting and this is one of the first quilts you might be making maybe your points are off or your measurements are not coming out right, never fear. This is fun, don’t make it not fun by worrying too much about it. However, if you do want to improve your accuracy, I did a series on that earlier this year. Find it here.
Don’t forget to share your block on Instagram using the #LittleMissSawtoothQAL for a chance to win a quilt label (see my quilt labels here). I’ll be choosing a block randomly as the winner for the second time on Monday, September 11, 2017, and you must have made each block up to that point to be chosen. More details on this in my original post.
