(Linking up at Let's Bee Social)

-- MOP: This week new blocks --

The practice for the secret event that I am organizing for next year goes on!!
In 2 weeks (during the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day) I will share (a little more) about it, so stay tuned!!
The new block for my Topolino quilt is the sweet Minnie:

I am very pleased by the background fabric I choose: I was not sure at the beginning because this fabric have large flowers in different colors so I wasn't really confident that the block would turn out fine... but I tried anyway and I love the result!! It look scrappy without distracting too much from the main character (at least that how I see it ;) )

And as mentioned before, I was planning to have this Topolino quilt done for Xmas and the original project had an additional gazillion of blocks ;) so I decided to go for a different design with less blocks ;)

And this is the beauty of using a sheet set as the backing fabric: I wanted to use this Mickey Mouse sheet as the backing so I bought the entire set, which has a flat sheet (the backing) but it has also a fitted sheet and a (matching) pillow case... so I thought: why don't I cut the fitted sheet and use it as the background fabric in the front too?? and that's what I did!!! And I super love it!!!!

This is the top! I didn't join the different rows because I will quilt them separately, so I can say that the top is DOOOOOONE!!

And finally we have one new opening lines for my SK project.
Pattern available on "The SK project" page
And now, what are YOU going to link?? :)


  1. Love your quilt top and would love to know where you found the sheet set for the background fabric?

    1. Thanks for the nice comment! I found the sheet set on Amazon (Disney Mickey Classic "Luv" Sheet Set). In the picture they usually show extra pillows and comforters, but the set contains just the two sheets and the pillow case (all white with mickeys allover!!). I really like how they look, but I don't have experience in washing them, so finger crossed ;)


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
Please share your thoughts on my projects with me!
