Scrapitude Reveal

Some of you may already know what the Scrapitude conclusion is by what kind of pieces you had in the last part.  In case you didnt, here is how the Scrapitude Mystery Quilt ends.  It's a beautiful Saw Tooth Quilt.

Here is Charlotte's quilt- above.  Charlotte on the right.
Remember the sashing you cut way in the beginning?  Pull it out is time to put it together. To prepare the four corners.  Take out a bit of sashing and add to each end those triangles you reserved from the beginning.  Sew them onto the ends of the sashing, going in the same direction.  Press them open. 
 Attach them onto the smaller triangles you made from the last part. Set aside.
 Now, sew a sashing on to each saw tooth star.
Then piece them together in rows with one of the large triangles at each end.  First row, one star, second row 3 stars, third row 5 stars, middle row 7 stars, then you start reducing down again to one.  Once you have those rows pieced together, then you sew the sashing together with some 2 1/2 squares you have left.  Eh hem, I had none.  I got a little over zealous with my four patches.  Never to fear, I have a boatload of 2 1/2 inch squares.

Then sew those sashing rows onto the larger rows.
