I designed this quilt for my cousin who is having his first baby and is a WDW fan.
I'm relatively new to applique and I was really happy with this--especially the center silhouette of Mickey.


I also managed to free motion Mickey Heads in the colorful squares.  They aren't perfect, but I'm happy with them.

PS--If you know my cousin--don't tell him.  I haven't given it to him, yet. 

I can't make it to his shower.  I would love to see them when they get it.  Should I wait to give it to them when I will be there?  Or send it to the shower?

Designed, Machine Pieced, Applique and Quilted by me.

I would wait and give it to them in person.  You worked so hard, and I think you deserve to see the look of delight on their faces when they open it.

Thanks. 
I'm leaning just the tiniest bit toward waiting. . . but its nice for them to share it at the shower, too.  And I feel bad that I won't be there.

I'm not a big Mickey fan but this is great! Love the colours you chose, and the free-motion Mickey heads in the squares are a nice touch.

Thanks for your compliments.

I still haven't decided to send or not.

If I wait long enough--waiting will determine the outcome. . .
