Friendship Star Quilt Pattern

Pin It
Christmas in July with The Quilt Ladies
I have to say this is one of my favorite blocks, mine is machine pieced, hand quilted and framed for a holiday gift.

For a refresher on how to's for Square or Triangles

Cut 1 Center Pattern Color - 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"
Cut 4 Background Squares 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"

Cut 2 Background Points 1 7/8" x 1 7/8"
Cut 2 Points Pattern Color - 1 7/8" x 1 7/8"
Make Triangles

Piece together the triangles - lay out design

Sew together to form rows.

Sew the row together

To finish the block

Cut 2 Background 3 1/2" x 2" Sew to the top and bottom of the block.

Cut 2 Background 6 1/2" x 2" Sew to the sides of the block

Press well, you can add batting to the back and quilt now, or just frame.

I machine pieced and hand quilted

The reason for the different colors - An Old Ladies moment...
I forgot to take the pictures of the blue one as I was sewing.
