    I desperately need some help here everyone; I want to make an appliqued princess quilt for my granddaughter she is 4. She is having a new little sister (we think it's a girl ) in June, so I want to surprise her with this when new baby arrives.
    Anyways, I am thinking 12 blocks with a different item dealing with a princess. Like the castle, shoe, carriage, and what ever to do with a princess. I am having a hard time finding pictures that you can use that don't have so many pieces to them. Any one got any ideas?
    thanks,
    grannysandy

    Look on some of the Internet free coloring book pages.
    You'll find lots of many different ones, all of which are
    aimed at small children. They can be printed out and cut
    apart, used as patterns.

    A crown would be an easy one. And great with metallic thread. Also a wand, maybe?

    Don't forget Prince Charming, the Fairy Godmother and maybe a bed and pea.

    I have used coloring pages to create my own designs. You can search for free princess coloring pages online and see if that helps.

    You'll find some good pictures of princesses on the Disney Family Fun website in their coloring pages.

    Colouring book pages are a great place to find simple line drawings that are easily appliqued and quilted.

    Ever see Bonnie Kaster's book "Once Upon a Quilt"?? The front cover pattern will blow you away.

    google images and type in the name of what character you are looking for. You will then be able to copy and paste, or print what you want.

    Hope this helps.

    Go to the newsagency or book shop and get a colouring - in book that is designed for children. They usually have simple drawings of princesses and fairies that you could adapt.
