    I would absolutely love that. I'll work on squares until I can see how you are doing it. Thanks so much. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

    This looks like a good set of instructions to work with for a 12 inch friendship star:

    That is the exact pattern that I used. It's where I found the pattern for the block. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I followed it exactly. It looks great, but the points of the star come right to the edge of the block, so if I use 1/4 inch to join, it will cut the tips of the triangles off.

    I made up a 12 inch friendship star block to fit in with my jelly roll quilt along blocks, just to try it out and so I could take some photos of the steps. Unfortunately I stopped taking photos too early in the process so I don't have enough for a tutorial. Still, thought I'd share. I did have to rip some seams along the way, but got there in the end.
