Friendship Star Polymer Clay Cane Tutorial

How to make a simple polymer clay cane inspired by the Friendship Star quilt block.
You don't have to be a quilter to appreciate some of the stunning designs and motifs used in traditional quilting. One of my favorite quilt blocks is called the Friendship Star. And yes, many years ago I even made a quilt using this design. Today however, I am going to show you how to make a polymer clay cane that incorporates the Friendship Star motif.

Friendship Star Clay Cane



The clay extruder comes with a bunch of different shaped disks. For this project you only need the square and the right triangle.

I cut all of my extruded clay into 3 inch lengths, but you could make them longer or shorter depending on how you plan to use your cane.
With the triangle disk, extrude 4 pieces of dark colored clay, 4 pieces of medium colored clay and 8 pieces of light colored clay.

With the square disk, extrude 1 piece of medium colored clay.
Press together a dark clay triangle and the light clay triangle to make a square. Repeat to make a total of four square lengths.
Now make four squares using the medium and light clay.
Next, make three rectangles by placing the square strands together as shown.
Carefully stack the left rectangle on top of the right.
Then stack those onto the last rectangle.

Carefully press or roll the entire stack together.
Once your block is completely compressed, you can reduce it and use it in projects just like any other cane.

Later this week I'll show you how to make another quilt block inspired polymer clay cane called Gentleman's Fancy.
