I was given the color scheme and what the customer wanted as far as applique. So next was to get out my pencil and start drawing. I drew this for the center:
I cut my patterns (reversed) and then using Steam A Seam II, I made my applique:
Next I made 4 Mickey Mouse and 4 Minnie Mouse:
I machine appliqued all my applique onto the white fabric.
(The quilt will be used and enjoyed so I made it machine washable.)
Here is a close up after I painted my lines on:
Next, I cut my fabric and made my blocks.
Besides the 8 applique blocks
there are 28 Star Blocks and
36 Stepping Stone Blocks
For the backing I found Vintage Mickey Mouse fabric.
The quilt was completed by machine quilting in a large stipple stitch and going around each applique carefully. Then clouds, and lines to emphasize the drawing in the center
My customer had specific instructions as to what she wanted on the label.,
I then added two little applique.
Total size of the quilt is 82" X 82"
OK, I am off and sewing again, so much to do, so little time....Oh, what fun! I sure hope you are having as much fun as I am.
HAPPY QUILTING EVERYONE!
