Minnie Mouse Quilt

Just ran across the most amazing quilt idea. I am a member of a Facebook site called The Main Street Mouse.  It's all Disney addicts discussing all things Disney.  Someone posted a quilt they received as a gift and I fell in love!

So we begin the planning process...
I searched the Internet and found the shapes I wanted.  Copied to MSWord and re sized.  Not terribably technical but it worked for me. 

Love this bow however can I get it to look right?

Used 10.5 inch blocks

Had to put stabilizer behind the white squares. Didn't want anything to show through the thin white fabric. But how cute is the white on white dots?

Used red to make the bow puckers. Probably should have used a slight different shade for more emphasis. 

The sashing is 2.5 inch 

Coming together!!!!!

Decisions. What to border with?  No loving solid black.   DOTS!!!

My first attempt at mitered corners!  Who hoo it was not hard at all. I love YouTube videos!

Border is 5.5 inches. 

Well it's done!  Turned out super cute. Quilted the edges on an angle every inch or so and outlined the middle of the boxes with Rays.  

Love it. Time to pack and send to its new 
owner!  A friends granddaughter. 

I think she loved it too!
