This friendship star block is another popular but easy block to construct. Once the blocks are made there are a range of different things you can do to these blocks before sewing them into a quilt.
Below I have listed a couple:
Here are the instructions for the making of this block:
Colours: Brights (red, yellow, green, purple, pink) with background of medium to dark blue.
From your background fabric cut these:
Cut 4 - 3 1/2" squares - these are 'A'
Cut 2 - 3 7/8" squares - these are 'B'
From your bright fabric cut these:
Cut 1 - 3 1/2" square- this is 'A'
Cut 2 - 3 7/8" squares - these are also 'B'

Put right side to right side, background 'B' with bright 'B'
Rule across the square on the diagonal, then rule either side of this line 1/4" **see diagram at right**
Stitch on both 1/4" lines then cut along the center line, this forms the points of the star, press light fabric seams towards the dark fabric.
Use 1/2" seams allowances to join the block. See diagram below.
