Yesterday, you saw how to make a Friendship Star quilt block.
The finished size of this block is 22½”. After it is quilted and bound, it will be a great little table topper or wall quilt. You could also add an outside border if you wanted to make it a little bigger.
What a good way to use up those leftover half-square triangles from those Flying Geese blocks!
A clever variation of this quilt block is as simple as using the same fabric in the center of the block that you used for the star points. It gives a whole different look to the design. And now you have a variation of the Friendship Star Wreath quilt!
So, the next time you’re making Flying Geese quilt blocks, remember you’ll have some bonus half-square triangles to play with! It’s super easy to put together half-square triangles and make another Friendship Start quilt block. See if you can make up your own combination of half-square triangles! Until next time…happy quilting.
