Friendship Star - Advanced
Free Quilt Block Pattern
Another Friendship Star! (Check the links at the bottom of the post for more Friendship Star blocks.)
Let's look at this quilt block as an intermediate level of difficulty -- simply because there are quite a lot of pieces to work with. The good news is that you can make this as a larger block -- hence fewer blocks to make -- so that your quilt will go together faster.
Other than squares and rectangles, the only patches in the block are half square triangles and flying geese units. Both of these patches are among the first ones you learn as a beginner quilter, so this just goes to show that making a quilt block is not difficult.
