I look at this quilt design and I find it hard to believe that it started with a Friendship Star block. But it did.
If you scramble the units before you sew them together, any number of different blocks is possible.
I'm more interested in finding blocks I've never seen before.
I tried brainstorming and set myself the goal of finding 30 different blocks made from the units of a Friendship Star block. I found many more than that. Here are 36 of them.
All of these were assembled randomly and colored randomly.
The next step is to play with a few of them to see if I can discover anything I like.
Obviously I've just scratched the surface of what is possible. If you want to try playing with some of the others, go ahead. I'd be delighted to see what you come up with.
