Friendship Star Quilt

The Friendship Star Quilt Block is a good block for beginners to get started.

From background fabric, cut: two 4 7/8” squares and four 4 ½” squares

From star fabric, cut: two 4 7/8” squares and one 4 ½” square

On the back (or wrong side) of the two 4 7/8” background squares, draw a diagonal line.

Place one background square on top (right sides together) of a 4 7/8” star fabric square. With the background square on the top, sew a seam ¼” away from the drawn line. Sew another seam ¼” on the other side of the drawn line as shown below.

Now cut on the center line. Press seams toward the darker fabric. Repeat with another pair of the same fabrics.

Arrange units as shown in the diagram at the top of this page, and sew the top row together.

Press seams toward the outside. Sew the middle row together, pressing the rows toward the middle.

Sew the third row together , pressing the seams toward the outside again.

Sew the rows together, making sure the seams meet and butt up against each other for a smooth join.
