I'm sure you remember I took a workshop last year with Bonnie Hunter and learned about bonus triangles and I love 'em! (You can see a mini tutorial here) With my recent project, Liberty Star, which was filled with flying geese and perfect for making bonus triangles, I ended up with 160 2" unfinished red/neutral half square triangles!
After playing with them a little and trying a few different layouts, I decided to make this friendship star quilt. All I had to add was the 2" center square and sashing, of course. To be honest, I added the sashing to avoid having to match all those seams!! LOL I think it adds a nice touch though...

The HST finish at 1.5" and the block finishes at 4.5"...isn't it just adorable?? I love star blocks and this ranks right up with my favorites.
I just love it!
I even like the back...look at all those seams! It's wonderful that on the flip side of all this chaos such loveliness! :) Kind of like my life sometimes...
There is one small "boo-boo" though...can you see it in the pictures above? I decided to keep it in, because as the saying goes, "Only God makes perfect things."
I thought we'd have a little fun. For all of you that find the boo-boo, post a comment. I'll draw a random name from the correct comments and the winner will receive these fabrics!
They are all Thimbleberries and mostly FQ's, give or take. Good luck! (I'll close the comments and draw a name Saturday night) WE HAVE A WINNER! -- THANKS FOR PLAYING!
