The Friendship Star Quilt Block

clipart picture of the friendship star quilt block

The Friendship Star quilt block is a very simple star block.  It is a 9-patch quilt block.  It is composed of half square triangles and squares.

The size of the block will be determined by the size of the patches.  If you want a 6 inch block, make each patch to finish at 2 inches.

Follow the directions on the half square triangle page to make the four star points, and cut the squares at the desired size of the blocks.

Put them together per the pictures of the blocks at the top of the page, and you are done.
