Mickey Mouse Rag Quilt

A friend ask me to make her a Mickey Mouse Rag Quilt. Her niece is having a little boy at the end of the summer and is doing the nursery in a Mickey theme.

Finding Mickey fabric that I liked (that wasn't going to have to be shipped from Japan!) was a lot harder than I expected. At one point I even ask her if she really wanted an image of Mickey in the quilt or if a red, yellow and black quilt would be close enough. She said either would work but she thought her niece would like it better if Mickey was actually in the quilt. The vision in my head had me looking for red fabric with just a classic black Mickey head - that was IMPOSSIBLE - so my final requirement was that it be the more modern Mickey and not have Minnie on the fabric.

I still wasn't completely sold on the Mickey fabric I found.  Mostly because it has blue in it and I'm just not a blue & black together kind of girl. But the Mickey sure is cute! In the end I'm glad I used actual Mickey fabric in this quilt. I think it ties it all together perfectly.

I think it turned out really nice and my friend's niece loves it! That's the most important thing!!

I love when friends ask me to create something special just for them or their loved ones! It is absolutely my pleasure to take something they are envisioning and make it a reality.
I'm linking up with Finish It Up Friday over on Crazy Mom Quilts. Have a great weekend everyone!!
