All blocks on this swap should be 100% COTTON.
Patchwork quilt blocks don't get much easier than the Friendship Star. But simple doesn't mean boring when you choose beautiful fabrics.
As for this swap: Swapper Requirements - 4.0 score or above, Newbies just contact me.
Swap Requirements - This finished block (when you sew them ALL together) is 12 inches, so what you are turning in is 12.5 inches. The fabric choice is yours, but the center fabric should be light and the background fabric should be dark. If your swap partner has not listed their preferences below, it would be kind to consult with your swap partner to find out what they like and don't like.
Square directions below:
Background Fabric - Cut 8 squares 4.5 inches (you will need 4 for the Half-Square Triangles - HST)
Star Fabric - Cut 5 squares 4.5 inches (you will need 4 for the HST)
To make the Half-Square Triangles (easiest method) place right sides together, make a LIGHT pencil mark from one corner to the other and stich along the line, then trim 1/4 inch from the stiched line and press open. Voila!
NOTE: Please pay attention to "which way" your star is turning.
More pictures are on my blog (this swap link) or you can contact me for more help if needed. And please remember to use fabric that is 100% COTTON. Thanks.
Cheers, and happy swapping.
