Starry Path Of Friendship Quilt

For this quilt I combined the Double Irish Chain and Friendship Star blocks.  Usually the Irish Chain blocks have a plain setting block in between the chain blocks, but since I was doing a red, white and blue theme I thought it was fitting to have stars instead of just plain setting blocks.  Many quilters use a faster strip piecing method to piece the Irish Chain blocks, but I pieced each square separately to give a scrappier look. 
I recently donated this gorgeous quilt to the VSA Arts of Minnesota Silent Auction held September 20, 2009.  For more information visit the VSA Arts website at
