Friendship Star Block - Feathered Friends BOM

Our Feathered Friends quilt has two rows of blocks to frame the quilt. Today we will make 4 Friendship Star blocks. This is a fun traditional block. I am using a green and cream fabric for my blocks. If you are making your quilt out of your stash, find a 'dark' color that can be found in your applique blocks. This will help to pull your quilt together. I used a dark green in many of my blocks. You will make 4 of these blocks for your quilt. The quilt block patterns will be available free until the end of the year.

 So let me show you how I have made the Friendship Star block. Go on over to the Website and download the PDF pattern. The links are below towards the end of the posting. Make sure that your email is correct so that the link for the pattern is sent to you. Also, if you don't find it, check your trash or spam folder just in case it ended up in there....

Gather your fabric and print up the pattern....

Cut 32 - 2 5/8" squares out of the cream fabric.
Cut 20 - 2 5/8" squares out of the green fabric.

·         Pair together light B square with dark B square right sides together. Sew corner to corner diagonally. Trim to a ¼” seam on one side to form a triangle square. Press to the dark side. Make 16 triangle squares total, 4 for each block.

I find it helpful to lay the block out next to my sewing machine.

Following the pattern sew your Friendship Star block together. Make sure to sew a scant quarter inch seam. Press to the dark side.

Make a total of 4 Friendship Star blocks for your Feathered Friends BOM quilt.

I will be releasing the other pieces and parts that you need to complete this quilt throughout this month. Stay tuned! Visit the Quilt Doodle website for the free PDF downloads for the quilt blocks and sashing directions.

It's an adorable quilt when it is done. The finished size of the quilt is 58" x 65" Each month's pattern is a free PDF instant download. If you miss a month, the patterns are available for $2.50 on my website and also in my Etsy shop.  

If you don't have a printer, you can purchase a PRINTED copy of the pattern

 There's also a Facebook Group, please join and post your progress! It's also fun to see everyone else progress too! Make sure to post your blocks so far! 

I hope that you all have a wonderful day and find some time to do some stitching! I'm off to hang out with my mom and work on some Christmas Projects.

Happy quilting,
Cindy and Josephine
