Some of the lyrics to the song are: There's a party over here, a party over there. Wave your hands in the air. Well, I'm waving my hands in the air (like you don't care) for a great Saturday finish. I made a baby quilt in two days!!!
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to test a pattern for Leanne over at Devoted Quilter. Friendship Galaxy is a great pattern with several options. Leanne's instructions are clear, and there are great diagrams. I highly recommend this pattern.
I did the wall hanging version but added 6-inch borders to make a baby quilt that ends up about 38-inches square. The pattern calls for different backgrounds for the two blocks, but I decided to use the same background fabric.
Here's a closeup of the double friendship star.

And a closeup my star FMQ.
I used yellow thread, and the back looks awesome. So much so that I'd consider using the back as the front of the quilt. In person, the yellow on the blue background is so vibrant and striking.
