Friendship star for a new member

Crafty pugs, our new member requested any block in blues, browns and greens so looking through my quilting books I came accross the "FRIENDSHIP STAR".  To me this is a perfect block for a friendship block swap group, its simple - but refined.  I am really pleased with how it turned out.  I may have to make one for myself and use it in the centrepiece of a cushion or something useful.
Also a warm quilted welcome Cheryll, member number 7.  I am waiting for Cheryll to decide what blocks / colours she would like to begin with.  Cheryll is a relatively new quilter and a little anxious about her skill levels.  I would like to take this opportunity to mention to all members, that it does not matter if you are an expert or a beginner, the group is all about sharing and making new friends and each block made for you is a gift to treasure and appreciate. If a member requests a block pattern that is a little to challenging for you, let them know, I am sure they can then chose a substitute block for you to make for them
