Sawtooth Star Quilt Block PatternSawtooth Star is one of the most popular traditional quilt blocks you'll encounter, and because the design is so popular, you'll find many variations, including this star with a 16-patch unit at its center.
The star's center unit can be strip pieced or sewn together square-by-square. Star tips are created from quick pieced Flying Geese. Block corners are plain squares.
