What are you most proud of?
That I was able to complete this? I found it very intricite, but fun!!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take it slow, and start with the bigger sections! Those eyes are a pain!! But now I'm on to Ariel, who has eye lashes too... lol.
I was thinking along the same lines of half the princesses and half "blank" squares with things like an apple, a majic wand, cinderellas slippers etc quilted on them in contrasting thread.
Yeah, sounds like a cool idea! Hmm, I dunno about doing them in the quilting tho, I'm just getting back into quilting (last time I did a quilt I was in high school, and we finished it with stitch in the ditch. Not sure I could free-motion those. I should try tho!) Maybe I'll see if I can find a paper-piece pattern for some of that stuff. PS: I talked to the girl who designed some of those patterns, and I might commission her to make a custom pattern of my daughter's face! :D Add that to the list of princess's!
Ingenious! Did you design this pattern yourself?
Oh. Sorry. I see now that you found the pattern. So very well done!
My daughter would love this.
My granddaughter would absolutely LOVE this. nice job!
Jasmine will be my 10th and final for the quilt I'm working on. Every time I complete a face I am amazed at how nice these patterns work up. You did a great job! Isn't it fun?
