Friendship Star

What if I color a Friendship Star slightly different?

What if I combine 4 Friendship Stars rotated to make a larger block?

What if I combine 4 of the larger block?

I think I should try adding a border to this.

What if, on all 4 sides , I repeat the friendship block reflected?

I like the pattern but I'm not happy about the color.

What if I add some red and green?

This is better.

What if I put green stars in the corners?

I am so pleased with the border. The border is what makes this quilt interesting

  1. Oh, I do like the last version - I might use different colors, but I love how it all locks in together!

    Great Job!

    By all means, use different colors

    What always intrigues me is how much variation is possible when a single block is repeated.

  3. Wayne,

    I love the last one too, but I think I would make the corners darker.

    I tried dark brown stars in the corners; but I felt the green was more interesting because it echoed the main image.
