It has been so much fun to receive pictures of your Sawtooth Star blocks “in the mail!” I am sure you will be inspired by the fabrics fellow participants have selected and the options they’ve come up with for the 4″ center squares of the stars.
First up are blocks from Mary; her guild in VA is promoting the QAL by encouraging its members to make the blocks each month. I would love to be in attendance when all the quilts are finished and on display. I really like the fun, light background print Mary selected for her blocks.
Marianne also sent a picture of her blocks. Again, she has used the trimmings from the Flying Geese to make other patchwork units (Hourglasses this time) which she can use elsewhere in the quilt.
Tina jazzed up her stars with imaginative centers. Isn’t that red yo-yo the cutest embellishment?
Chris noted that the first three blocks she made looked so similar, she felt compelled to step out on a limb for the fourth block. Those are tiny rectangles in the Sixteen Patch, Chris!
Sarah also made four lovely blocks for her “Options” quilt. Notice that she photographed two of her blocks “on-point;” same star design, but totally different appearance. Wouldn’t it be fun to combine both orientations in the same quilt?
Trish sent a collective picture of her blocks. All are beautiful and nicely made, but I am especially drawn to the left-most block on the bottom row. Isn’t that fussy-cut rose perfect?
Thanks, friends, for sharing pictures of your blocks!
