Disney inspired quilt from Nina...

Nina from Mama Roux made this super darling Disney quilt. I love it, it is definitely Disney without the loud Disney prints. What a precious gift for a precious girl. Go check out Mama Roux  for some more inspiration!


 This quilt is for a baby girl whose nursery will be decorated in the theme of Mickey and Minnie. I wanted to make the quilt as tasteful as possible without it looking too commercial.

I made the appliques myself, simply taking a silhouette image and tracing onto black Kona and attaching with fusible web.
I then stitched around the appliques. I used red and black polka dotted fabric in large and small dots. The solid fabrics are kona black, red, white and buttercup.
Quilted in a loop de loop/meandering pattern. Measures 40" x 50", a medium crib sized quilt. This was definitely a fun quilt to create.
