Frozen warms the little girl

     I have got to say it- Disney is not my idea for a quilt. But my granddaughter, 2, asked me if I could make an Elsa Blankie. I bought the panel in Houston at the Quilt Festival as well as the big border snowflake fabric. I cut off the annoying pink border and added three. I used a heart design in one border, snowflakes in another and swirls in the last. I free motion designed the panel according to what the image was. I changed thread colors for the hair and clothes. 
    Of course she loved it because of the Disney princesses. She put it to use right away.
All done! Used the colorwash binding I auditioned for Circle Dance

I thought the pink border was annoying too and you chose great border fabrics for it. She probably won't let it out of her sight!

Seeing Jolene use the quilt takes the sting out of Disney.
