Friendship Star & Wild Duck

Last one for a while, I am going to work on more cards and scrap book pages. So stay tune for that. This one is called Friendship, but goes by many names again. Most quilt blocks have many names to them all they really did was change the color or add a piece to them. If I remember correctly this is also called the Whirly Gig.

Supplies needed"

1 1/2 square punch.

Whisper White and Pretty in Pink Card stock

Designer Paper of choice.

Mauve Mist Ink Pad

Small background stamp

Stamp your PIP card stock with MM. Then cut your card stock at 5x10 and fold in half to get your 5x5 card.

Cut the WW at 4 3/4 x 4 3/4

Punch out 6 PIP squares and 3 designer paper squares.

Cut 2 of the PIP in the diagonal and 2 of the designer paper on the diagonal.

Start in upper left hand corner of your WW. Going in approx. 1/8 inch from top and side, lay your first piece PIP square. Then going across lay 1/2 diagonal piece of PIP then the designer one and then a square again.

Follow the sample when this is completed just mount to your main card and your done.

I also did a smaller one of the Wild Duck only this one I made smaller using the 1 1/4 punch and your end up with a card that is 4 1/4x 4 1/4. Hope you enjoy this one too. Remember you can always do different sizes all you need is a different sized punch.

I hope you are all having a wonderful warm weekend. Here in Central MN it is really cold. Last night we had temps. at -20 and wind chills in the -40 below. It was so cold, today has not been much better. Suppose to warm up next week and I can't wait to see those temps in the teens or higher again.
