Saydee's Big Girl Bed Quilt

 I started this quilt for my granddaughter, Saydee, back in the summertime.  I spotted a smaller version on Pinterest in red and black.  My daughter told me Saydee likes the newer pinker Minnie Mouse so I changed the color scheme.  I drew the Minnies myself (hehe) and just used wonder under to iron them on a handful of the squares.  I zigzagged them on so they will withstand the whirlwind that is my adorable granddaughter.

My very tall son holding the quilt for me.  He wasn't thrilled but he is tall enough!

For the back of the quilt I used a rainbow of colors with the black and white.  This is a super easy block pattern.  Saydee's room is blue so this side matches it a little better (and maybe in the future if she ever repaints!).

I'm afraid I didn't get a very good shot of the quilting.  This is a twin sized quilt so it took some muscle to quilt it in my home machine.  It is a meander of sorts with swirls and curves and m shapes.  In the photos the quilt had already crinkled up from the wash.  Saydee is sleeping under it now and hopefully for many years to come.
