    I too lost my points. I don't know why I did not think to make the background in the blue to have contrast at the points. Oh well, I always make two versions. The second block I went more subtle in the stripes with a contrasting background. This was a fun star to make, thanks for suggesting it!

    why can't you just rip the points out and add another blue stripe at the end the same width as the rest of the stripes?

    If you look at the picture in the directions, that's the way it's put together.

    I changed and put the light where the dark is and dark where the light is.

    I'm glad I made ONE block - I could not see myself making a whole quilt with this block. To the quilter that does....I bow in awe!!!

    Here are 2 pictures. The yellow is bright and the wrinkles are from too much spray starch...which I'm sure will quilt out.

    Another pretty star!

    quiltinghere, if you iron your block with a steam iron it should take those wrinkles out after starching!

    I thought I would try another approach but I'm not happy with the way it turned out. I really didn't have the right colors to make the shift from blue to yellow. Also, it doesn't go very well with the other blocks. But I thought I'd post it for the idea. I'm going to try again with different colors.

    Just put a yellow center in your friendship block. Should be easy to take apart to do. :thumbup:
    I love your color combo............

    I love this variation! I was going to try something like this but did not have colors that worked.

    Where did you find that pattern??it's very nice, I like the colors Was more paper pieced like the center block. I really love those colors...all of them and all your blocks are very pretty even though some of the "tips" don't show, at first I thought it was suppose to be that way. Still very pretty and different too. I wouldn't change a thing. We like it!!!
