So Easy to Make That You’ll Want One for Every Season!
This sweet little quilt is made of Friendship Star blocks cleverly arranged into a wreath. While it looks complex, simple half-square triangles and fabric squares make up the block.
Paige Alexander of Quilted Blooms finished off her wreath into a beautiful mini quilt.
A lovely variation is to use colored fabric in the star centers instead of white. Jean Boyd shares the following example in her article on Quilt Social.
This is a great project for using up leftover half-square triangles. You can also choose fabrics to match your decor or for a particular season. This would be lovely made up in Christmas fabrics, for example, or for patriotic holidays.

You can also stitch several wreath blocks together into a larger quilt. Here’s an example of one way to set several blocks together, from Camille Roskelley at Simplify (Camille has a pattern available for this, her “Round & Round” quilt).
Jean Boyd has provided a tutorial for the wreath block. A finished mini quilt from the block is about 22 1/2″ square, perfect for your wall or table.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
