Sawtooth Star
Cutting is for one block, repeat to make four blocks

from first print, cut: 1 square, 2-1/2" x 2-1/2"
from second print, cut: 4 squares, 1-7/8" x 1-7/8" cut diagonally once
from background print, cut: 1 square, 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" cut diagonally twice
             4 squares, 1-1/2" x 1-1/2"

Sew the small triangle to the short side of the larger triangle; press.
Sew another small triangle to the other short side to make a
flying geese unit. The unit should measure 1-1/2" x 2-1/2",
including seam allowances. Make a total of four units. 

Arrange the flying geese, 2-1/2" square and four 1-1/2" squares
in three rows. Sew the units and squares together into rows. 
Join the rows to make a Sawtooth Star block measuring
4-1/2" square, including seam allowances. 

Potholder Quilt

This was such a fun project. I can't believe it took me so long to 
finally get it done. The idea is simple. Take extra blocks or
make them just for this purpose, quilt each blocks individually
and bind. I used a ladder stitch to join them together on the back.

My Summer Stars quilt is complete and I love the way it 
turned out. If you were sewing along maybe yours is done too!
If you missed our sew along it is never to late to join the fun.
