Yesterday, we explored 4 ways to use the leftover half-square triangles, and as I mentioned, there are many other combinations. This Friendship Star quilt block is my favorite, so I decided to make a large block using several overlapping Friendship Stars quilt blocks and called the quilt the Friendship Star wreath quilt.
In addition to the half-square triangles, you’ll needed to cut the following from background fabric:
1 – 8″ square
16 – 3″ squares
4 – 3″ x 10½” strips
4 – 3″ x 5½” strips
First, sew the half-square triangles, 3″ strips, 3″ squares and the 8″ square together in rows as in the picture.
Then sew the rows together to complete Friendship Star wreath quilt.
The beauty of the Friendship Star wreath quilt, is that it isn’t difficult when using the friendship star quilt block which is originally made up of half-square triangles. Join me tomorrow as we explore 2 other variations of this design.
