Friendship Star Block

In our new 'Quilting Sisters' Block Exchange we will be featuring a new block each month. May's block was our 'Friendship Star Block'. Here's a tutorial if you'd like to quilt along. If you'd like to join our exchange just email me at or call us at the shop (253) 531-4309.

Our finish blocks measure 12 1/2 x 12 1/2 so make as many as you'd like to make your quilt the size you'd like.

To make one block you will need:

1  4 1/2" square
4  4 1/2" half square triangle
4  4 1/2" four patches

To make your four patches. Cut two 2 1/2" strips and sew them together; press open.

Then sub cut your strips into 2 1/2" strips. Nest your seams and sew.

Once you have your four patches sewn and pressed. Make your half square triangles. Take two 4 7/8 squares right sides together. Mark your 1/4" seam, sew, cut and press open.

Once you have your units pressed, square them up to 4 1/2". Now you can build your stars. They are easy to put together.

Here are some other color ways for you to consider. Happy stitching and may your bobbin always be full!
