    Olaf! For my sister...

    Hi,
    Just sharing a pic or two of an Olaf panel quilt I made up for my little sister, who shares my fondness for this great character! He never fails to make me smile, and hope it brings a smile or two to her face too!yy. It's backed with nice soft Olaf print flannel.

    This was my first experience with working with a panel, building it out to a functional size for an adult and quilting it. I'm pretty happy with the outcome. I still have one ready to assemble and quilt yet for myself, so we'll each have one

    Thanks for for taking a peak!

    Love the accent stars & the pieced binding!

    Thanks PaperPrincess! I'm glad you noticed those darn stars! I made 30 of them thinking to fill the borders with them but with the plan of making our two quilts the same, meaning I'd have to make 30 more, decided we would share them! They are paper pieced and fiddley and took forever!

    I like the way you took a panel to such great heights with the stars, borders and quilting designs. It make a panel quilt spectacular and sure to be loved. Your stars really are worth your effort.

    It's great how you picked up the colors on the panel for the stars. All of the quilting is beautiful, but the modern look of the straight line quilting around the stars is so very attractive to me!

    Very cute and nicely done. I like the stars you put in the white border using the perfect fabrics.
