MIckey and Minnie by Rose

Rose told me that her first husband had played with her new sewing machine one time while she was out of the house, and this was the result.  Yes, this is all thread painting, meaning he made the design by making the stitches himself.  This is not an embroidered design that you would download and have the sewing machine stitch out while you watched it. 

 Mickey and Minnie's faces are stitched too, they just don't show up so well on the white background fabric.
 This Mickey is appliqued, but the "drawn" lines are stitched.  So, pieces of fabric to make his face and ears, but the outline is all stitching.  Even his pupils are stitched.   By the way, this is on the back of the quilt.
