Friendship Star Quilt Block

The Friendship Star quilt block is super easy, but it doesn't have to be boring. Try making quilt blocks with a rich, black background and brightly colored solid or tone-on-tone stars. When the blocks are put together, you'll see that a secondary pattern emerges between the colorful patches.

I've included cutting instructions for a 12-inch finished quilt block and a 6-inch finished block. On Page 3 you'll find yardage and cutting instructions to help you make multiple blocks.

Friendship Star - 12-inch Block

  • Black: cut four 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" squares; cut two 4-7/8" x 4-7/8" squares

  • Bright solid or tone on tone: Cut one 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" square; cut two 4-7/8" x 4-7/8" squares

Friendship Star - 6-inch Block

  • Black: cut four 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" squares; cut two 2-7/8" x 2-7/8" squares

  • Bright solid or tone on tone: Cut one 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" square; cut two 2-7/8" x 2-7/8" squares
