Make Sawtooth Stars with Embroidery Machine Hexagons
This quilt was inspired by the Starstruck pattern from the AccuQuilt website with the traditional Sawtooth Star in beautiful bright colors. The Grandmother’s Flower Garden machine embroidery adds another traditional touch to this bright and modern looking quilt. Instructions for the pieced Sawtooth Star block can be found in the AccuQuilt GO! 72 Blocks pattern set. Using the AccuQuilt GO! 12” QUBE to make this block is a breeze. I love that all the shapes are at my fingertips and there’s no searching on my shelves for specific dies. The machine embroidery used is also easy as the stitches are light and the block is stitched in a single thread color, making the hexagon blocks complete in record time. For piecing the stars, a Tonga Treats 6 Pack Happy Hour by Daniela Stout was used and that provided a wonderful selection of colors.
The Churn Dash block is one of my favorite quilt blocks and cutting the pieces out with the AccuQuilt GO! Big Churn Dash die is fast and easy.
