A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks — Friendship Star

  Friendship Star Block


We’ll make this tiny friendship star block today.

Had more fun going through my scrap basket!



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

I used Thangles for the half-square triangles.


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″.

Use your favorite method.

Assemble your block.

Then if you want, make more!
