Sawtooth is definitely one of the gainers—blocks that look at their best when turned on point. Another peculiarity of this block—and it has nothing to do with the design—is that it is the first block I did twice. My first attempt was definitely not usable. You may see for yourself:
The two fabrics are much too similar in colour value to go together. And I was sure I wouldn’t make that mistake! I must attribute it to my strong wish of including my new large scale print, because this block has some large pieces in it. I asked myself if it would have worked if I had used the large scale print for the sawtooth part instead of the “background”. But I decided that I do not like the fabric at all and may not use it again. It is particularly not good for small pieces, because the large scale print makes them look as if I had used two different fabrics.
Sawtooth reminded me very strongly of a block I did a couple of weeks ago: Star of Hope, almost twins.
I am much more satisfied with my second version and I am really fond of the new fabric I used there.
