Make a Disney’s Beauty and the Beast: Rose Quilting Square


My husband had his doubts that I could pull this off, but I did! 

I started by getting my inspiration piece. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast window pane is just beautiful. Once I saw it, I could picture in mind how I could turn it into a quilting square.

I searched for both a coloring page of the window and an already colored image. 

I focused on the part that I was going to create, the rose. I cut out that section and increased the size to 120% with the printer.


Using the colored image, I visited JoAnn’s where I picked out the fabrics that best matched the colors of the rose, leaves, and stem. I bought a quarter of a yard of each, which was more than what I actually needed. I wanted to have fabric leftover in case I ruined any part of it. 

Materials:
  • 3 different shades of red or pink fabric (quarter of a yard)
  • 3 different shades of green fabric (quarter of a yard)
  • A piece of fabric for the background. I chose a washed blue fabric. The size was approximately 10 x 11 inches.
  • A quarter of a yard of Heat N Bond. 
  • A piece of freezer paper.
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Rose template


Of course, Nikki had to come investigate what I was working on. 

Procedure:

  1. I numbered each part of the rose 1-3, with each number representing one of the fabrics I had picked out. The 1 was the lightest shade and 3 the darkest. 
  2. I made an extra copy of the template. Just in case.
  3. I ironed the Heat N Bond to the back of small square pieces of each of the colors that I was going to use. 
  4. I slowly started cutting out one of the pieces at a time from the template. I didn’t cut it all at once, just the piece I was going to work with.
  5. I place the template piece on top of the fabric square that had the Heat N Bond on the back. There are many other iron on adhesives. Use whichever one you prefer. 
  6. I put out the piece following the small template. 
  7. I laid out the freezer paper over the image with the glossy side up. I used it to help me figure out where to put the each piece of the rose.
  8. Once I had all the pieces of the rose put together then I cut it out of the freezer paper and put it aside.
  9. Repeat the same process with all the other parts.
  10. Once you have all the pieces made individually, peel off the freezer paper from the back and iron on to the background fabric. 
  11. Lastly, you can leave it as is or sew it down. I suggest using invisible thread so you don’t have to change threads often.
