My interest for quilts was born out of my love for early and colonial American history. Being from Southeast Asia, I had not had much exposure to quilts due to the fact that quilts are mainly a Western “thing”. Through reading, I became aware of and loved the look of the Baltimore quilts, but still I didn’t catch the quilting bug mainly because I didn’t know how to sew. I decided to give quilting a try years later after being repeatedly encouraged by a friend (Thanks, Barbara!), just so that I can say that I have somewhat “shared” an experience in quilting with the women I read about in history. Little did I know how much I would enjoy making my first quilt, and before I knew it, I was making my second, third, fourth, and fifth quilts!! See more at wendysheppard.net

I started out early in my quilting journey to see just how many ways I could use sawtooth stars in my quilts. Sawtooth star is a popular traditional quilt block. If you play with fabrics and their placements, as well as trying block variations, the Sawtooth Star becomes a fun quilt!
