Welcome to Block 3 of our Happy Cloud Quilted Pot holder Quilt along! The Sawtooth Star block is one of my favorites! I love using it in quilts, table runners and placemats and of course in pot holders!
I love how you an showcase a pretty fabric in the center like the block above. I used fabric from the Aviary 2 collection designed by Joel Dewberry for Free Spirit Fabrics.
You could have your center fabric match your outer fabric, like these pot holders I finished below.
I made these using fabric from the Fresh Market collection by Riley Blake Designs. I bound them using a stripe fabric made by Robert Kaufman Fabrics.
With the above pot holders I wanted to quilt them to emphasize the star pattern! I quilted them using my walking foot and lined the foot up against the start edge. It’s nice using a walking foot, because it helps pull all of those layers through the machine. If your machine didn’t come with a walking foot it is easy to find one for your machine. You can google your make and model number or go to your manufactures website!
If you have already downloaded the Quilt-A-Long pattern, the block will now be available in your Craftsy account for download.
