Rapunzel paints a picture of herself watching the lanterns glow on her birthday night.
I chose to share this mini quilt again because my sister and I love it so much. With the addition of LOTS of free motion quilting, the scene really came to life. I had a blast deciding how to quilt the trees differently, how to applique and quilt Rapunzel's hair, how to make the lanterns glow, etc.
"Tomorrow night, the lights will appear, just like they do on my birthday each year." I quilted some of the song into the quilt, as you can see on my original blog post.
And here she (left) is when I gave it to her on her birthday:
And here it is hanging in her new dorm room a couple weeks ago:
I can't wait to make another mini for her this November, based on the movie Frozen!! Stay tuned!

Please enjoy the Blogger's Quilt Festival, the largest and loveliest quilt show on the internet! I've entered this quilt into the Art Quilt Category because I used several different techniques and it's based on a piece of artwork!
See my first entry into this year's festival right here (ROYGBIV/rainbow category).
