Light: 6 x 5″ squares

2. Take the remaining 2 Dark and 2 Light and make HSTs

- scant 1/4″ either side of line
- cut between the lines
- trim and press OR press and trim
3. Organise your squares
4. Sew and press your 9 patch Friendship Star.
You are a STAR, friend!
Let’s take a look at our blocks so far:

Next week we will move on to more combinations of squares, strips and HSTs. I hope you are enjoying the blocks.
Until next time
