I’ve still got one top to quilt at Mom’s (the Little Wishes quilt), so I want to get a couple more tops done and maybe make a trip there before the end of the month.
So grabbed those mermaid blocks I made the other week, and threw them together into a top.
When I made the big star blocks…
I knew I wanted to do a corner star sashing as well. But I wanted to do it with a twist this time. Instead of saw-tooth stars, I turned them into friendship stars!
It was actually a little trickier, despite being a simpler looking block. With saw-tooth, you just snowball each sashing strip. But with the friendship star, I made HSTs, and had to pay VERY close attention to which way they were pointing.
But it was worth it in the end.
If I can get another top ready to quilt, I’ll book a play date at Mom’s!

So cute – really turned out nicely Val.
Very cute design.
Love those mermaids and all those beautifully constructed blocks!
Well done! It is confusing to keep the points pointing correctly.
I love your design! The way you worked in the friendship stars adds so much to the mermaid blocks. Bet it will sell quickly.
How cute is that? All those points make me dizzy. I’d never have been able to figure that out.
It absolutely was worth the effort! What a cute quilt!
