Friendship Star Variation Quilt Block


I found the pattern for this 12" Friendship Star Variation block free on-line at: is the second block of my Starwood Quilt, which I made as part of my monthly quilting group.  We chose this block in honor of our friendship.  Many of us have been friends for years and years.  It takes a long time to grow an old friend!

Notice that I placed this block on point.  The basic block is 12" finished but 16" finished with the blue outer fabric. 

A sampler quilt is my favorite kind of quilt to make.  Making different blocks keeps me interested and helps me learn new skills.  Choosing which block patterns I want to use to commemorate my home and community greatly adds to my enjoyment and creates a one-of-a-kind quilt.

  1. Wow, Love this block. I'm not sure if it is the color or the pattern, but I really think this block is great. :)

  2. I like the feeling of motion that block gives. (might have to try it)


I love hearing from readers. Your comments make my day!
