I found this sweet red-and-white Friendship Star block a couple of days ago in a pile of the blocks I inherited from a longtime quilter. Two things set this block apart from the basic Friendship Star (tutorial here):
- The contrasting triangles in the four corners of the block.
- The quarter-square triangle in the center.
The finished block looks almost like a cross between the basic Friendship Star and a Snowball block. I’ve got to try this in a quilt sometime soon.
