Friendship Angels Lap Quilt

This is a quilt I made for my manager for Christmas a few years ago.  Since our structure name is Team Angels I thought the angel fabric was appropriate for the background stars. 
Although it looks complex, the piecing is pretty simple for this quilt.  The blocks are simple Friendship Stars, and the placement of the background fabrics creates a secondary Friendship Star pattern.
If you’re looking for a fast project for a gift that doesn’t look like you did it really fast, this is a great one.  I’ll be posting the pattern for this quilt when I get a chance.  In the meantime, the second picture shows a closeup of the blocks so you’ll probably be able to make it without the pattern.  It’s just squares and half-square triangle pieces.  I made 9-inch finished star blocks, so each of the smaller squares and half-square triangles would be 3 1/2 inches before sewing them together.  The middle angel square measures 9 1/2 inches including seam allowances.
