This may have been the quilt I had the MOST fun making!
My inspiration for the quilt came from pinterest. I saw this blog and just KNEW I had to re-create this masterpiece for my friend who was expecting as she is an AVID disney fan! I used a few different patterns I had to create the overall pattern.
I then used my silhouette cameo to cut out the mickey heads in the black fabric.
I cut the black fabric with my silhouette by using an iron-on backing. then sew with a zig zag onto the white fabric. NOTE: I waited until AFTER I had pieced the square it was going on so I would know how to position it. (The pictures below were an example before i pieced the other squares)
Here is a pieced square:
Next, I lay out the entire quilt and piece it together, add the borders, and get ready to quilt
Before making the quilt sandwich, I made the quilt backing. I decided to make a striped backing with a combination of all the colors used. This is VERY important to make sure it is done evenly so it doesn’t look slanted after you quilt.
For the quilting, I did free motion around the Mickey Mouse heads each separately.
Then, I did free motion throughout the rest of the quilt being careful not to overlap the Mickey heads. Also, did stitch in the ditch on the borders.
Here is the final product:
