I loved this quilt pattern when I first saw it. I bought the fabric from Connecting Threads. I was going to enter this quilt in a local quilt show. Unfortunately is was cancelled do to Hurricane Sandy. Instead of stippling around the designs I used different size /shaped swirls.

This quilt was such a blast to make!! I wanted to make this one fun and fantasy based. I found some copyright free coloring pages. I mixed and matched until I came up this this design. To get the size I needed I printed out each coloring book design and blew it up to the size I needed.
I went to my local fabric store looking for a light colored brick fabric, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. I bought a brick template a long time ago and decided to try it. I used a tea stain dye.
I then traced out each piece of the castle on freezer paper.
I traced each piece of applique on my homemade light box. I used Wonder Under to fuse the applique pieces on the the main fabric.
