Carol's Birthday Quilt

Today is my friend Carol's birthday. This is her birthday Christmas quilt. I gave it to her last week.
It's made using the premise of the 'One of a Kind" quilts that I showed recently in my office art.
I think you can tell that she loved it :)!!

The back was this great "Dashing thru the snow" by Teresa Kogut that was out several years ago. It's 54" wide and the perfect size for a lap size quilt backing.
The blocks were made using pillow panels and stocking panels. I really love this technique. And these pillow blocks looked so vintage.
You just start with one block and it starts to gr0w. So each one ends up being one of a kind!!!
Until next time,
-Karen

Your friend is a lucky lady. It's a wonderful quilt. I like the plan -- start with one block and go from there. I like the free form look of it. And it looks like a great way to add a little bit of almost anything that strikes your fancy.
The backing is perfect!
