It is called Friendship Star. It is a star I never really liked that much but it sure is growing on me. This block is a 3". That means the center is ONE INCH. 
I did one by hand that took several hours and had half inch blocks. I was not satisfied with it, so I went up to a more manageable size. This was inspired by the key chain I won.

The little fob is a friendship star block. I got the idea from one of my books, 130 Quilt Blocks, by Susan Briscoe. I thought a book that features 3, 4, and 6 inch blocks might come in handy since I am pretty much infatuated with little quilts. The book was specifically written to take advantage of pre-cut fabric purchases such as stacks of 5" squares, rolls of 2.5" strips, and stacks of 10" squares.
