Friendship Star block

Time has come for us to set our first block and we thought the ‘Friendship Star block’ was appropriate for a few reasons; we’re friends meeting and sewing together once a month, we hope to make some new friends as others join us and also we look forward to becoming acquainted with anyone out there in blogland (and elsewhere) who wishes to participate.

This is the block and you can find the tutorial over at Sarah's blog

For this block Sarah chose one bright print for the friendship star and two other prints for pairs of opposite corner triangles, as well as a solid white cotton as the background to the block. Bright colours are definitely the way to go with this block. We love it and can't wait to see it in a quilt.

Many thanks to those of you who have contributed to Bee Blessed in the past and to those who have encouraged us to keep going. We hope you enjoy making this pretty block

If you the need the postal address for the blocks please send an email to and I'll forward it to you.
