I have two sawtooth star quilts in the works.  my teal and brown quilt has 6" blocks
I have been chain piecing them, and I have about 12 more to go. 

The next quilt is one that I started many years ago.  It has 9" blocks.  It is a
All I had for the background was some scraps of a black batik
It's my favorite batik.  I wish that I had more of it.  Luckily, even though I had made a few blocks with it years ago, I still had enough to cut enough background pieces for 30 blocks.  And I still have a little left. 
I'm not sure that I'm going to even use these blocks.  I think that I would rather go with batiks and hand dyes that read as solids.  I just haven't decided what I would do with the bordering fabrics.  Maybe I will make the stars a solid and the block borders can be prints.  

Oh well, first things first.  I want to finish up the teal and brown, the pickle dish, and it isn't looking good for my husband's Christmas quilt.  As usual, the year has flown by again. 

I hope that you all have a great weekend!!
