Austen is a big minion fan so when I saw this panel at a quilt show, I knew it would be perfect for him. I found some minion print (the yellow) to go with. I made 8 point star that measure 6" square to go around. I had to add a border to the long sides to fill it out and added a 1 1/2" blue border around all sides of the stars. I then did a 4" piano key border from orange, blue and the Minion print. And finished with a 2" outer border of orange. The panel measures 21" x 40 1/2"; the finished quilt is about 51" x 67".
I outline quilted the Minion with a light yellow and meanders in the panel with a variegated blue. I straight stitched the orange and white borders. I did curved lines in the stars with a light yellow and meandered in the blue borders. I straight stitched in the piano key border and stars in the border squares and finished with loops and stars in the orange border.
