Sawtooth Star Quilt Tutorial

Who doesn’t love a star quilt? They are happy, bright and so fun to make! This week I’m sharing a sawtooth star quilt tutorial. While there are lots of different star quilt patterns. I have to admit this is one of my favorites.

I like to mix up the center of this star. I’ve seen sampler quilts made completely of sawtooth stars where only the center has been changed. I personally have made the centers really scrappy, as in Scrap Busting Star. Get this free pattern when you sign up for my newsletter. In Braveheart I used an hourglass block. My logo taken from one of my best selling patterns, Sunshine on a Cloudy Day, has a pinwheel in the center.

Being a scrap quilter you just know I’m going to have a lot of fun making them scrappy. In addition to the previous mentioned quilts, all of which lend themselves well to scrap busting. Twinkle, a sawtooth star quilt set on point, will help you put a dent in your in scraps. As well as Shooting Stars, a happy star quilt where each point is a different scrap. Does that make you as happy as it does me?

Are you ready for the sawtooth star quilt tutorial? I sure hope so. Make sure your share your creations with me. I find it so much fun to see how you take what I teach and make it your own. Simply email me a pic. Or you can tag me on Instagram @emsscrapbag. Or if you belong to my group Facebook page you can share it there. I know everyone there would love to see it. In this time of social distancing it is fun to share and hear from other quilters. So I hope you will join us! Now enjoy the tutorial.

    I’ve been experimenting with Sawtooth Star layouts. This simple block is devilishly versatile. Substituting blocks for center square, flipping flying geese blocks on the perimeter, using HST’s for corner blocks and of course varying the colorways make for infinite fun. Love your bright stars on dark background.
