    hi, I didn't do it as a quilt, but years ago I had the kids do a Christmas table cloth. We took coloring book pages, outlined on the sheet, then using fabric markers, colored the puctures. they enjoyed being able to color on it, and loved using it. I just used it for a family dinner, and the grandkids want to color too! has been a great item. I hope your family has fun with whatever you decide to do.

    You could also scan pictures of artwork and print on to fabric. You can add photos as well into your project.

    I'd be worried about washing it.

    as an art teacher i did alot of crayon transfers to muslin with the kids. these are washable - however i never did quilt with them but see no reason why not.

    using regular crayola crayons, make a design on coarse grit sandpaper. the design should be shape oriented, that is, not alot of detail. the sandpaper is just about right size for a block. if the design has a border around it, that works well for a block. Designs are most effective if every inch of space on the sandpaper is colored and heavily so. if there is thick enough crayon you will get a very colorful transfer on the fabric. lay the muslin or any cotton on top of the sandpaper and iron on high. you can use a press cloth to avoid getting crayon smears. it will smoke as it burns off the wax so do this in a ventilated room and with adult supervision.

    have fun! :)

    I am glad someone asked this question.. I was racking my brain to think of something new and different to send with Hubby.... We have a 6 yr old GD that lives with us and she is the light of his life.. I think we are going to make one of her drawings for him and do it as a quillow...
