January 2017 Block of the Month - Sawtooth Star

Sawtooth Star Block

The color recipe for this one is Jade and Coral in honor of Empire’s 35th Anniversary year.

The main component of this block is the flying geese blocks around the center square.  I received a recommendation to try a new way of making flying geese blocks.  I have included the link for the technique I used which – conveniently – yields the four flying geese units needed for this block.

The center square for this block should be 4-1/2" x 4-1/2"

The corner squares for this block should be 2-1/2" x 2-1/2"

I assembled the finished block by attaching two flying geese units to the left and right of the center square.  Then the corner blocks were attached to the top and bottom of the remaining two flying geese units.

Once assembled and pressed, trim block to 8"x 8".

If you prefer, this also works as a jade star on a coral background - like the block shown below
