    I din`t have to cook dinner so I got to play. I love this block. No matching seams and if you need to sq a bit no points to cut off.
    Thinking of making an all blue.
    Also a pic of my big boy grandson who was born Oct 29th!

    Love this pattern! I sketched this block out on paper a few mos. ago and can't wait to make it. Had no idea it was called Buzz Saw, but it makes a great scrappy quilt. Yours in all blue will be beautiful. Love your pic of your grandson! He's so cute! :thumbup:

    I asked for the pattern here as I din`t want to paper piece like the pattern from blocksgalore so was given this site
    happyquilter.blogspot.com
    The only thing is you need to start with 6.5 squares. I`m going to see if I can figure out to do in strips as I have alot of scraps.
    Yes he is cute. Thanks for the coments.

    Hey Gale
    Your work is wonderful and your GS sure is a cutie:)
    I was sonder about that blue fabric you have in that one square, with the stars with rings around it? It's the upper right block. Anyways, do you have anymore of that or could you tell me where you got it, please? I have like 1/3 of a yard of it and would like to get more but I can't find it any place.
    Thanxs,
    tarbender30

    Very nice! I'm working on a Buzz Saw too. It's at the quilters right now. I made it out of oriental print fabrics. You can see it here: http://fabricribbonandyarn.blogspot....-quilting.html

    A fast and easy way to make a Buzz Saw Block:
    1. Cut big squares of high contrast fabrics.
    2. Wrong sides together, make HSTs - you'll end up with 2.
    3. Press toward darker fabric.
    4. Cut 4 or 5 equal width strips. Number them 1-4 or 1-5
    5. Realign them from ascending order to descending order. Sew 1/4 inch seams. Now you have a Buzz Saw Block.

    Many possible variations. Keep the same light fabric, but use scraps for the darker contrast. Or, use scrap lights and scrap darks.

    Many lay-out variations - similar to log cabins, but MUCH faster.

    Thank you, Joanne S for those quick ways to do the Buzz Saw! Looked at yours too, Suse! It's very pretty! Also, thank you gramma33 for the link you used. All I had was a sketch I drew so directions will really come in handy!! Don't remember where I saw the quilt made up, but thought it wd make a great scrappy quilt. Now I can get going on it with all the directions so far!! Thanx, everyone! :thumbup:

    I made a sample block using these directions once. It did go together very easy. I should try to find it. It would make a great scrap quilt and heaven knows I have plenty of scraps. But first I have a wedding quilt to work on. Keep up the good work.

    The block looks fun. I'll have to dig for the pattern and try it. The baby is so precious. :D
