1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: lion king paper pieced baby quilt on: March 26, 2016 12:25:17 AM
This is amazing and labour intensive work! Did you design the paper piecing yourself or use a pattern?

all the blocks are available for personal use off of a website that has a TON of different character/fandom pieces.
i am so not brave enough to try designing anything myself!
you can find all the goodness here:  http://www.fandominstitches.com/ Smiley

Just wow!
I whish I was that good at paper piecing. But I always mess it up.

i totally started with easy star blocks, then gradually worked my way up to this.
it was daunting for sure, but in the end so worth it!

This is so lovely - I bet she was thrilled!

she was!
though we had to come to an agreement that yes, it was 100% allowed to be used by baby once they were through with the spit up/explosion phases Smiley

Ohhhhh, this is the one I've been waiting to see since you commented on my sciency quilt - and it ROCKS!  I am so jealous of all the science fabric you found and the the whole quilt looks stunning!  Hope your sister likes it; if not, send it my way.  Wink

thank you so much!
haha it's safe to say she likes it!
she pulled it out to show her fiance and seems pretty excited that it will fit their future queen sized bed.

my mom and i had purchased this fabric forever ago, planning to someday make a quilt for my sister (she's a physics & math major)
well, she went off to school and got engaged so i felt like the quilt HAD to be made before she became a mrs in april.
i made a few of the ribbon star quilt blocks for the first time during a quilt block swap, and thought they would be perfect.
we got 9 different prints altogether from the science fair/chic geek lines of fabric and went to town on creating this quilt that was SUPPOSED to be for a twin sized bed.
well, its HUGE.  but when she gets married and has a bigger bed, it will still be able to be put to good use Smiley

the row across the back was actually supposed to be ANOTHER row on the front.  but i gave it the boot, and love how it turned out.
the backing fabric is all little atoms as well Smiley
thanks for taking a peek!

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / mickey inspired triangle quilt on: January 25, 2016 02:55:23 PM

i made this mickey inspired quilt for my dear friend's mom, who is VERY much a disney fan!
i've loved using the triangle quilt along instructions for 2 previous quilts, and had a great piece of fleece already to use for the back.
i took colors from the back piece and found prints that had one of the color and white on it, or in some cases, i found some that had three.
i'm so thrilled with how it turned out, and she loved it!

thanks for stopping by!

This is a really fun quilt! Lion King is one of my favorite nonprincess disney movie and you did such a great job with making this quilt. I have never paper pieced and i dont plan on trying it any time soon, but i might have to rethink that now...
thank you so much!
i absolutely didn't take the paper piecing plunge with this quilt (mufasa's eyes were TINY!) but once i got the hang of it with other simpler blocks first, i was hooked Smiley

how cute!
i'm working with the same science prints right now myself (i have the green version of the DNA strand)
it is so fun to see the same fabrics used in different ways
