I have been working on a Mickey Mouse
quilt for a special person in, well, we won't say now. It is going to be a Christmas present for someone special.
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
I fussy cut a 4 1/2 inch block from the backing, for each corner
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!
