OH, MY STARS BLOCK #11 FRIENDSHIP STAR

Hello and Welcome back!  

This is the 11th block in the Oh, My Stars series and is called Friendship Star.    I really like this block as it is simple yet pretty in its own way.   It can be found at Quilters Cache at:  http://www.quilterscache.com/F/FriendshipStarBlock.html.  Just remember that the blocks will be 6.5 inches squared.  Since the pattern is the same you can use their pattern, but make sure that you cut the fabric with the following sizes.

Here are the colors I chose.   I went with three colors:

For light color, you will need eight 2.5 inch squares for the corners.  You will also need to cut four 2 7/8 inch squares cut into half for a total of 8 triangles.  You will be making 2 blocks.

For the center block, you will need two 2.5 inch squares.

For the dark color, you will need eight 2 7/8 inch squares cut into half for a total of 8 triangles.

Here is the block laid out before sewing:

Thank you for playing along!  The next block will be up next Sunday.

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
