What materials did you use? I used Moda's "Mama Said Sew" range. My intention was to make something masculine for my 25 year old son. I feel i have been able to achieve this by using the combination of the colours in the fabric along with the "buzz saw" design of the blocks. I have now quilted and bound my quilt. I had so much extra fabric I was able to use scraps for the backing and to make a large piped cushion.

What are you most proud of? I love the way it has all come together even though there are directional fabrics in the series. The sawtooth border was also a lot of fun to create. I am currently working on using the rest of the leftover fabric for the back, but as i work full time, this could take a while before i have it ready for quilting.

Love the Mama Said Sew that you and I have used - I especially like the black as your background fabric - really gives it a zing to it - the saw tooth border looks tremendous too. Well done.

I agree Beth245, that black background looks fabulous and makes the quilt sing. Well Done Sassysue!

Hi Beth245. I love your quiult also. It has a much softer look when light background is used. Well done!!

Thanks Sassysue - it is amazing how many variations you can get out of the one range of fabric. I guess it all comes down to our different imaginations.

I like your fabric choices...think I like the blocks better without sashing; the black really emphasizes the sawtooth/chainsaw look. Great quilt!

Hi from Coorparoo! I am working on my Chainsaw and looking at everyone else's and saw you are a fellow Brisbanite. Love your black, it looks tremendous and the back is great too.

Thanks heaps. I had alot of fun making it. What quiulting/fabric shops do you use most often? I visit Patches at Indooroopilly mostly as i live in Sinnamon Park.

08/02/2013 Flag

Yes I know Patches but haven't been there for a long time as I live on the south side. My "local" is Sewco at Mt Gravatt, but I also go to the Quilter's and Embroiderers' Store at Salisbury, as it is big and has a very good range of fabrics. Have you been there?

08/09/2013 Flag

Yes, i go to Salisbury quite frequently and generally find what i am looking for because of their vast rangeof fabric and also love their array of ribbons braids and buttons etc.
