My version of Kimberly Einmo’s Chainsaw Quilt

When in Grand Rapids last month, I took a class from Kimberly Einmo.  She is a wizard with jellyrolls and precuts, and is now branching out to modern quilts and applique!  She taught her chainsaw quilt class.  It looks kind of like a saw blade, hence the name.  I cut up all my pink, coral, peach, tangerine and lavenderish fabrics in my stash to make my own layer cake and jelly roll.

You make the individual blocks.  They have that lovely jagged edge.

Then you spin them around and put four of them together to create the saw blade shape.

Kimberly’s quilt has borders and half square triangles, but I decide to make some extra chainsaw blocks and make the whole quilt out of them. (You can find the pattern in her book, Jelly Roll Quilts & More).

I just got the top pieced, but I think it came out striking.  I am thinking it wants some quilted circles, what do you think?

This could be a fun baby quilt with 16 blocks, it would sure stitch up fast.
