Dumbo for #disneyquiltswap2015

Well, it's time for the reveal of my Disney Mini for the #disneyquiltswap2015 on Instagram. My partner really made it clear that Dumbo was her absolute favorite! She added like five or six exclamation points after stating Dumbo as her number one choice. I really don't blame her. Dumbo is such a cute movie! I totally view it differently as a mother than a child and it's easy to love. My mom's favorite happens to be Dumbo too. I always thought it was lame as a kid but now I get it. I still have my favorites though. I have a thing for Monsters Inc. and Beauty and the Beast. I think it's the doors and the fact that Belle doesn't take any crap from Beast. Her brown hair is plus too. I can relate to her the most. 

Well, my partner asked for a minimal creation. So I was on the hunt for Minimal poster art for Dumbo and found some rather awesome ones. I put out a "poll" if you will on Instagram for what people liked. I ultimately decided to use a Disneyland Jungle Cruise poster I found and improvised with bubbles instead of water, changed the colors and added the Dumbo text in the original movie font. I'm pretty handy with the sewing machine when it comes to applique but when it came to the quilting part....I was stumped. I decided to go with echo quilting since quilting really isn't my thing. In fact, I just plain don't know how to FMQ or care to learn how to. I'm too impatient to learn honestly. There are many times when I wished I knew how to though. The backing is a cute flannel I found at Joanns in the Disney section. I had to have it! It was perfect!

This little beauty is off to it's new home along with a few goodies. Enjoy partner!

  1. Love the quilt. Your partner is very lucky to get it. Great job.

  2. I saw you posting this on IG at the same time I was posting my Dumbo mini. It made me laugh as I hoped our partners would be thrown off whose is whose since two Dumbo minis were being put together at the same time ;)

  3. This is just precious! Congrats on a great finish. Who wouldn't love this gem?

  4. Oh so very cute and I'm sure she is going to love it.
