    Me, too. But you can call any block anything you want. That is what they used to do. It is why so many blocks have several names.

    Yes, Sawtooth Star it is, my favorite and I've made it many sizes. Sometimes I make the star in all one fabric and other times like the one shown with a different center.

    Eleanor Burns has a method of making 2 flying geese at a time - you can find a video on quiltinaday.com

    If you want it to finish at 8", you would use a 4 1/2" center square, four 4 1/2" geese, and four 2" corner squares.

    I made these for my parents anniversary quilts and made them from half square triangles. Not really good at the geese yet and the hsts were easier at the time. I used a charm for the center, cant remember the size of the hsts

    To finish at 8" you would cut the center square at 4.5". The flying geese units would need to measure 4.5 by 2,5" and the corner squares need to be cut at 2.5" Once it is all sewn together it will be 8.5" and finish at 8 when sewn into the quilt.
