Arabian Nights

I've long been a Disney fan, so when I ran across this pattern, I knew it was going to be a must.

Another of those wonderful quilts the Quiltery offers!

Is this just the coolest?
The whole gang is here...

The Wizard

The Guards

The Monkey

Aladdin of course!

The Parrot

The Sultan

 
Genie!

I love the quilting in it. Easy enough on a domestic machine.
I just made 1 line with my chalk marker, the switched to my Hera marker for the rest. Never did I imagine that it would work so well. I learned after a few lines, that looking ahead (much like driving)
gave me much straighter lines! Who Knew!  LOL!!
And that scroll work! Yum....

Everything was included in the pattern, right down to the quilting design.

 I'm definitely going to sit down and just enjoy this one for awhile!
My left arm needs a break. It got quite the work out pushing all that thru my machine for 3 days!
A break would have been nice, but this was like "chips" you couldn't stop with just 1!

I played a lot of mind games on this one.
You know...one more line and I will stop and get something to eat,
I'll stop and go to bed
I'll stop and go to the bathroom!

LOL
That one couldn't wait!
;-)

PS: I have a secret to share...
I had a horrible accident when this was all done. I always put Fray Check or Fray Block on my raw edge appliques. In a couple of places the black batik I used ran when the Fray Block hit it. 
Arrrrrrrgh!
What was I to do?
Some days it pays to save everything under the sun.
I dug thru my totes and found the flesh colored tole paint that is about 25 years old!
Hallelujah it was still good!
Can you spot where I had to repair things?
Hint Hint...
One place could not be fixed!
:-)
It's ok, I love it anyway.
