This is a special gift for a special friend of my daughter. I made my own pattern, and originally it was going to be a pillow case, but it was too striking to fold in half, and only be able to see half of it at a time. Now it can be a wall hanging or a table topper because it is not quite big enough for a lap quilt. I love the horizontal quilting lines and it kept this quilt from looking too feminine. I had a lot of problems with thread breakage on this quilt, and I am not sure why.
