    I am posting a picture of my friendship star block for you all to see. Donít pay too close attention to it, though, as I put it together backwards. Pay attention to your instructions. Letís all get busy and make some beautiful stars. I am looking forward to see what you all come up with.

    My first one is backwards, too. The daughter whose quilt it centers will never know. I like your fabrics.

    Very pretty Judy, here's mine.
    Did I mention I love stars??
    Will definitely be making another color combination of this one.

    If you didn't mention that it's 'backwards', I wouldn't have thought about it.

    Do stars go 'backwards'? :)

    Very pretty Judy. Backwards works! I can't wait to get started. Thanks.

    Love the bright yellow Lindyline. I'm also thinking about doing a set with a black background and bright stars. I just love stars.

    Here is another one I have done. This is a variation (just added half-square triangles at the corners) but it makes it look totally different. You can also do a variation by adding a four patch at the corners. All kinds of things to do with this star.

    Can't wait to see other pictures.

    Here is my first Friendship Star. I will make another for the BOM. One can't have too many friends.

    I came up one short in a birthday quilt. This was my 'fix.'

    Oh they are all looking so pretty!! Here is my block. I wanted to do black and a silvery but had not silver in my stash. I like it though. Very easy to do. (Secretly: I am glad it wasn't paper piecing! :) )

    They are all soooooo pretty. David I love your nautical theme. If you have a pizza parlor close to you, they might sell you a pizza box for a small price (they're the perfect size to keep blocks in. I have plastic containers that I bought at Costco (I think it was a package of four) that I keep the fabric and completed blocks in for projects I am doing. You can also buy at the sporting goods store some square plastic containers that work well (this was a tip from my SIL - I actually spent a small fortune for the same thing at Joann's). It's really nice to have your fabric and completed blocks together when you're working on a project.

    Great job all on the completed blocks. This was such an easy block it's going to seem like a long month til the next one is posted (that is unless you're doing the house BOM also - that will keep you busy in between stars).

    I love all the stars! Great job everyone! It will be a couple of days before my fabric comes in and I can do mine, but I guess I have all month... ;-)

    For future blocks you can use a clean pizza box. I use them to store blocks for WIP and keep my supplies for projects togather.

    In my book no block is backwards. They are either left-handed or right-handed. Mine are always left-handed because that means the right side of my brain is always working. LOL
