This video tutorial makes 2 pieces like the one above. The full block is made with 4 pieces.

## Notes

The math for this block isn’t 100% correct. What I mean by that is that you may find that if you cut your strips at 2 1/2 inch intervals, the last strip will be less than 2 1/2 inches.You can see that on my video. That’s because the half square triangle is 9 1/2 inches square not 10.

That doesn’t affect the end result. Just sew the narrower strip with a scant 1/8 inch seam allowance to compensate a bit. That’s what I did, though I’m not sure it was necessary.

## How to make this block

## Materials

For each 4 piece patchwork block, you need:

- two 10 inch squares in red
- two 10 inch squares in light grey
- four 2 1/2 inch x 9 1/2 inch strips of red fabric

## Quilt designs

With this block there are variety of quilt designs you can make:

### Buzz saw quilt

### Visual process

An unusual placement of this block makes this quilt:

Este bloco é sensacional, pela beleza e facilidade em fazer. Muito obrigada

Ludmila, you’re right, I’m uploading a new video with the right sizing, 10 inches. Sorry about that. My blog post is correct but I somehow mistyped the size on the video.

what is the dimension of the finished block?

i also get 3 strips of 2.5″ and one 2″…is this correct?

You’re right, the last strip is not exactly 2.5″ because in fact the HST is 9.5. My last strip is slightly less than 2.5″. You can see it on the video if you look closely. But it doesn’t show in the finished block. The instruction should be to divide the resulting HST into 4 equal strips. At the end of the tutorial you will have a 9 3/4″ block, depending on how accurate your cutting is. Mine is about that. So the finished block with the 4 pieces will be about 19 inches I think if my math is correct.

I to, am in down under, Adelaide in fact. Love the buzz saw block . Just have to try it. Ah, I am supposed to be quilting my quilts which I have been making for charity, but I think I will have to do a block just to get the hang of it then get back to it.

Hi Kaylene, I have made this block in two ways which are almost the same but my second tutorial is a bit more accurate. Have a look https://mypatchwork.wordpress.com/2016/04/21/two-buzz-saw-quilting-blocks-video-tutorials/

If you cut the strips at 2 3/8″ each the math works out. You will end up with four strips the same size, then just cut the solid strip 2 3/8″ also.

That should be right. Thanks for that.
