Sawtooth Star

This quilt top design is from my 28 October 2010 post.

It is possible to piece this using only squares and half-square triangles.
The grey lines in this drawing show where the seams would be if it were pieced that way.

This results in a lot of unnecessary seams.

What if I take out all the seams that join together two or more pieces of identical fabric?
The quilt can then be broken down into a series of easy to sew blocks.
The "flowers" are in the form of large Nine Patch blocks. I would sew them together first to help keep the piecing simple.

For more piecing ideas go to My Posts by Subject in the sidebar on the right and click on Piecing.
