My One Monthly Goal for August was to piece the 6 large Sawtooth Star blocks. Since I was trying to work from my stash and had limited cuts of some fabrics, I decided to include a pieced 9" block in the each center of the 18" Sawtooth Star blocks.
My favorite is the dark blue block with a Single Irish Chain in the center. It almost glows with the Michael Miller Cotton Couture solids in Sailor and Wave. Also included are two prints, one is a print from True Colors by Tula Pink and the other is an Alison Glass print from the Sun Print 2015 collection.

For the light blue block a Diamond Star was chosen for the center.

I chose Spinning Star or Double Friendship Star for the center of the dark purple block. This is made from more Alison Glass, Kona solids and a Northcott print from the Artisan Spirit collection.

The center of the light purple block contains the Frayed Four-Patch. Again, this Sawtooth Star is made from Alison Glass prints, Kona solids and a Northcott print from the Artisan Spirit collection.

I think more time was spent selecting fabrics than the actual piecing. Here are all six Sawtooth Star blocks together with the light blocks on left and dark blocks on the right.
