The first block is a Friendship Star pattern with a Finished Block Size of 12"x12".
I played with a friendship star block pattern in Electric Quilt until I had some fabric from my stash that I thought would work well with it. If you want to make one, here is my rotary cutting printout from EQ for a friendship star.

|Block 1 assembled.|
With the ebooks, I have found the block pattern is also available as a PDF to download from their website. I already have the next book on my Kindle ready to read. Looking forward to finishing it and doing the next block.
