Special Birthday

Someone special is having a birthday.  My cousin's grand daughter, I guess that makes her my 3rd cousin?  She is turning 2!  DD and I decided she needed a new quilt.  We made her one when she was born, but now that she is a big girl, she needs a new one!

Well her family are big Disney fans.  They have passes and go all the time.  So she is a huge Disney Princess fan.  So a theme was born.  Need to make a Disney Princess quilt!  Lucky for us when we went to JoAnn's all their Character Prints were 50% off!

Here are the squares all cut:
I used 8 inch squares, a 3/4 inch seam and it is 7 x 7 squares across.

Here it is all laid out:
There is a tink print, a pink princess print and a blue Cinderella print.  Then we filled in with pink and blue stars and an awesome green/glitter solid and a sweet pink and green. dot.

Again I used the tried and true stiching on the border with alternating colors:
And after snipping and washing here she is?
We found the cutest Disney Princess nightgown on clearance and a great Disney Princess 5 min story book. I think bedtime is covered!

Party is tomorrow, hope she likes it!

Have a great weekend,

Toodles,

Laura
