"Learn how to sew a Friendship Star Quilt Block during week 6 of our Spring Block of the Week! This Friendship Star is one of many different star block patterns and the easiest! The history of the Friendship Star is so sweet!! In the days of the pioneers, Friendship Star quilts were made for women about to embark on their pioneer journey. Her friends would each sew these simple stars and embroider their name in the center of the star. The quilt would be presented to their friend to take along with her on the journey west. The women who received the Friendship Star quilts found comfort in not only the quilt itself but also in the memories of her friends who made it for her. These gifted quilts made the difficult journey of leaving friends and family behind a little more bearable. Talk about the power of a gifted quilt!!! "
