We’ll make this tiny friendship star block today.

I plan to use different prints for each block.

The more the merrier, in my opinion!


  • 4 Cream squares 1 1/2″
  • 1 red square 1 1/2″
  • Make 4 cream/green half-square triangles using 1″ FINISHED Thangles™ or see instructions below for traditional piecing.

I like to use Thangles™ for making small half-square triangles.

It’s quick, easy & very accurate!


If traditionally piecing the half-square triangles (hst’s),

Cut 2 green & 2 cream 2″ squares.

Place a cream square on top of a green square.

Draw a diagonal line on the cream square.

Sew a scant 1/4″ on both sides of the drawn line.

Cut apart the squares on the drawn line.

Press flat, then toward the green fabric.

Trim hst’s to 1 1/2″.

~~~~Make them however you prefer.~~~~

Lay out the pieces then assemble the block.

Have fun!

Don’t forget to post pics over at my Sewing With Susan Facebook group!

See you tomorrow.

Just Keep Sewing…
