My last block for this little ladies pink baby quilt is the Sawtooth Star Block. I have to say this is one of my favorite, all-time block! I have used it in many quilts in many different ways. I love this work because of the white is the center and the darker color fabric is used as the “background”.
I know there are many tutorials out there showing how to make flying geese. I know of three different ways, plus one I just found out recently that uses a flying geese ruler. I’m just going to link to a post where it describes all three methods. FYI: the first one is my favorite –
Using the first tutorial at the link above, here are the measurements we’re looking for on this block for the quilt:
Flying geese finished size: 5 1/4″ x 3 1/8″
6 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ flying geese background (pink)
7 3/4″ x 7 3/4″ flying geese points (white)
Follow the tutorial and trim to size above.
4- 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ background fabric (pink)
1- 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ center fabric (white)
Lay out your blocks like this:
Start by sewing it in rows.
Row 1 – 3 1/8″ square (pink), flying geese, 3 1/8″ square (pink); press towards pink.
Row 2 – flying geese, 5 1/4″ square (white), flying geese; press towards white center.
Row 3 – 3 1/8″ square (pink), flying geese, 3 1/8″ square (pink); press towards pink.
(Make sure you put the flying geese in the right direction.)
Sew and press.
Then sew the rows together. Press and trim to 10.5″ x 10.5″.
And there you have my favorite block, you need 4 of them for this quilt.
