More on the Friendship Star Quilt Block

Right after I finished my post on how to sew a Friendship Star block, I discovered an easy variation of the block that uses three fabrics instead of two. This gives the block a whole different, scrappier look. In the three-color variation, the star’s center square is a different fabric from the star points. Here’s what the three-color star block looks like:Friendship Star Quilt Block 3 Color Large

Compare that to the two-color block:

To make the three-color variation, you simply substitute one 4-1/2″ block of a third color for the center square. Then piece the block as described in the instructions in my previous post.
