Sawtooth Swap Blocks

I love making 6" sawtooth star blocks. In 2016 I made 100 of them during Barbara Brackman's "Stars in a Time Warp" block a week sew-a-long:

So when I learned that Barb Vedder of Fun With Barb was hosting a swap I jumped in. Of course, I was at Houston when this was announced and saw it late so I was happy to be #38 out of 40 to make the reproduction list, phew!

Barb has a great tutorial for this block--try it, you might like it: Oh My Stars Swap Tutorial.

As soon as I got home from Houston I jumped on making these 40 blocks even though they aren't due until January. I'd rather get them done and sent to Barb before I start on the next project that awaits.

Here are mine on the design wall:

These go quickly and I enjoy working from small pieces of my repro fabrics.

I look forward to seeing what blocks I receive in return, early in 2020, when I will probably have forgotten all about it--the package will be an unexpected gift.

Thanks, Barb, for the Fun!

Let's quilt.
