HOW AWESOME!!! thanks for the link too. A whole new world has opened up for me! off to the fabric shop I go! and by the way .. WOW! you did an awesome job.. those eyes look a liitle complicated and time comsuming according to the pattern.
AbbyDawnDesign answered:
They are the most complicated/time consuming, but I found it wasn't THAT hard... def harder than the October examples, but so worth it. Lol, a whole new world! ;) Yeah, I have bought material for 6 different princesses, with plans to buy more... not sure how big it will end up being, I'll probably do half these, and half something simpler for filler... ideas? I could do just some disney print patchwork or something, but I don't really want to go the commercialized route, if you know what I'm saying. :D
sleepydiver asked:
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.
AbbyDawnDesign answered:
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!
