Group Quilt Block

Sawtooth Star
Sawtooth Star

There is a woman making two quilts (one is done) for a mutual friend. Another participant decided to make a quilt for the first quiltmaker.

Are you confused yet?

I made this block to send along to contribute. I often, as you may have noticed make stars, especially the Sawtooth Star. I like Sawtooth Stars. I think star blocks give a lot of bang for their buck. I wanted this one to be as cheerful as possible. As you can see, I used fabrics from the A-B-C Challenge.

It is already sent off and I will probably never see it again.

Definition: A sink (also sinker, hand basin and wash basin) is a bowl-shaped plumbing fixture used for washing hands, for dishwashing or other purposes. Sinks generally have taps (faucets) that supply hot and cold water and may include a spray feature to be used for faster rinsing. They also include a drain to remove used water; this drain may itself include a strainer and/or shut-off device and an overflow-prevention device. Sinks may also have an integrated soap dispenser.

Salton Sink (California) – The Salton Sink is the topographic low area within the Salton Trough, an active tectonic pull apart basin.[1] The Salton Trough is a result of crustal stretching and sinking by the combined actions of the San Andreas Fault and the East Pacific Rise. The Brawley seismic zone forms the southeast end of the basin and connects the San Andreas Fault system with the Imperial Fault Zone to the south.[2] The Salton Buttes are rhyolite lava domes within the basin which were active 10,300 (+/- 1000) years BP.[3]

A carbon sink is a natural or artificial reservoir that accumulates and stores some carbon-containing chemical compound for an indefinite period. The process by which carbon sinks remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere is known as carbon sequestration. Public awareness of the significance of CO2 sinks has grown since passage of the Kyoto Protocol, which promotes their use as a form of carbon offset.
