Disney Princesses

My love of novelty fabrics is widely known and my friends at the local Project Linus chapter save some of the fun donations for me.  Recently, a piece of  Disney Princess fabric was donated to the  chapter.  I decided to embrace the girly and make a quilt as pink as possible.  The fabric turned out to be a fat quarter. I didn't want to lose any of the princess so instead of cutting it up,  I decided to treat it like a quarter log cabin and sew strips on two sides.

I used Kona solids in peony, bubblegum, lupine, plum, and bordeaux.  The binding is Kona honeysuckle. 

For the quilting, I did a cross-hatch in the area with the princesses.  Then I used a decorative flower stitch with a variegated King Tut thread in shades of pink and purple on the log cabin strips.  I'm really pleased with the look of the decorative stitching.

I used a pink gingham-look fleece on the back. I love backing my kids' quilts with fleece and I don't use batting in them.  It's a lovely weight and nice and soft and cuddly. 

I took it to the park for some pictures and had to wait for a rare moment when there was no one on the equipment to snap a picture.

This will be donated to Project Linus and hopefully will make some Disney princess fan very happy. 

This quilt was on my list of projects needed for my PhD (Projects Half Done) with Quilting Gail and was #20 on my list of Q1 finish along goals. 


  1. Cute, cute!! Some little girl will be thrilled.

  2. Ohhh, what a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Very simple, but very effective. All those pinks will be well loved by another little princess.
